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)

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 🙂
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!
