On Surviving Weekends !!

My weekends are usually so busy that I desperately long for Mondays. Now that the dinner’s taken care of and the house doesn’t look like a cattle shed, I can type few posts in the peace of the night. Oh wait!! hubby wants to watch Friends again.

As Ross is climbing down the chimney, hanging onto Joey’s legs, let me wonder where did all my time go this weekend.

So Saturday started quiet earlier than usual. 5 am to be exact!! And it was freaking 9 degrees outside. After snoozing the alarm for next 20 minutes I finally got off the bed and ready for a drive, to watch the Sunrise. Once the initial “why the hell am I even doing this” moment is over, the beauty of an early morning takes over.

I am obsessed about Sunrises (it’s just waking up at an unearthly hour that seems impossible :P)



Dawn, at one of the Eastern Beaches in Sydney

Some yoga stretching would have been good but it was so windy and cold that I could barely move my numb limbs. After running up and down the walk-way to warm up my body, I was able to bear the freezing winds. Although, my hubby did manage to take few of my yoga shots with the brilliant tangerine horizon πŸ™‚

For a change, instead of eating our usual Big Breakfast in a nearby cafe, I decided to prepare it at home, along with some Banana Milkshake. Delightful and Filling!!



The evening was spent among lush green hills and a silent river, in the town of Wiseman’s Ferry, located about 130km from where I stay. 




We both don’t like the idea of staying at home during weekends. But once Sunday arrives, realisation dawns that there’s so much still to do. 

A look at the laundry leaves me pondering – how on earth did I manage to wear so many clothes. And wasn’t the carpet vacuumed just two days back? Why do birds only find my balcony? Oh gosh the pump shoes need an emergency ‘stinky smell’ fix before the office people declare me a health hazard!! 

Even though my to-do lists looks painfully long, in between cleaning and sipping wine, I managed to survive Sunday.

C’mon Monday, give me your best shot!

  1. I agree – weekends are packed but I don't long as much fro Mondays. The thought of sleeping when I want is what weekend for me is all about. And laundry? gosh! seems like when will it end?

  2. You don't look like you're dressed for winter! πŸ˜‰

    I agree that weekends seem jam-packed. We like to get out too but then I come back to laundry and a messy house and no food in the fridge!

  3. I love feasting my eyes on your yoga shots that you post on Facebook.

    As long as you're fit and happy, stinky shoes, unwashed laundry can go to hell,

  4. I am opposite of you in that even though I do sometimes have busy weekends, I sometimes wish they would never end! πŸ˜‰ Ok, just teasing but you get my point, right? πŸ˜‰ Anyway, I am SO impressed by your tenacity in getting up to go see sunrises. πŸ™‚ And I am curious what is the pull for you….like the surface and what's beneath that. <3

    1. I so wish there was one more day to weekend πŸ˜› but then maybe I would figure out what to do on that day too πŸ˜› Thank you so much Elly πŸ˜€ I am just fascinated by twilight … sunrise and sunset brings such joy in my heart πŸ™‚

  5. I am with you on the early mornings. Once I wake up they are the most beautiful ever. I love sunrises too but rarely get around to seeing them for this same reason. As for the chores… They just never end.

  6. Yeah, me too. Have so much to do during the weekends but I also try to find time to relax. I hardly go out during weekends because traffic is a real killjoy in Bangalore. I prefer weekdays.

  7. I get only one weekly off from the store, and half the time, even THAT is spent in stock purchasing! πŸ™
    I so agree with you, Raji. The housework just seems to pile up during the week.
