Crave Some Lazy Time?

It feels like ages since I put up a post – I told you cricket and work is occupying my time currently. MDH and I were having crazy weekends for the last 3 months. There was a continuous flow of guests at home and on weekends we were busy playing tour guides, once they were off it was my birthday, friends’ birthday or friends meeting up after long time. There was not a single weekend I remember where we just stayed home and relaxed.  But this one was a contrast to the hectic 3 month period.

We just relaxed, sat at home, made some amazing Maggi for lunch, evening dinner was sabudana wadas, read some good books and watched some awesome movies. The channels played some great movies on the weekend after ages – Mississippi Burning, Anna and the King, Devil Wears Prada, Incredibles. We have seen them before umpteen times and enjoy watching them again. I actually did not hit twitter and Facebook as constantly as I would during normal days. I caught up on my much needed sleep and lazed around  – it just felt good to not do anything for a while.

MDH had to be in office for some important work today but was back in time to join me for lunch. So in the morning I went out and got my hair pampered at the parlour . After much thinking, got the Keratin treatment done, wondering how the hair is going to look:-). Then headed out for a nice Keralite lunch with my best friend here. I have not felt so relaxed in months and though I absolutely love having people over – I start craving that lazy me time.

The match was washed out today and I felt like I had loads of time on hand. Burnt a few long pending CDs, reached mid-way through Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers and wondered why I had kept away from his books so far; they are absolutely brilliant!

Opened my Google reader and realised it is getting impossible for me to keep pace with offline and online reading plus all the work-related reading I’m yet to complete. As I keep pace with my life and to-do lists I really wonder how people manage to be so glued into twitter, Facebook and their offline lives. I doubt if they have any offline life at all – we have only 24 hours – how on earth are they managing the time 🙂 Me on the other hand enjoyed the last 48 hours – I need to do this more often and blog about life a bit more often!

    Wow, nice way to spend one’s time. And sabudanawadas brought back a lot of nostalgia (I am from good old Pune and now live in Bangalore). It’s ages since I made them or ate them.

    And I am one of those people who are glued to the net and blogsites and fb all day long and find 24 hours insufficient to handle it all! Of course, I too would love to have some time off this if only I could tear myself away.

      Hey Swati,
      I too love to read all the links shared on twitter/facebook and my reader feeds. Point is I have realised am going no where with this addiction:-) Need to balance it out – need to go back to the good old days of holding paperback books and sipping coffee at leisure:-)

    Believe me there is nothing like having Maggie for lunch…. i too crave for such lazy weekends.. and i am having one at the moment… 🙂
    caught up with a lot of your old posts and as usual they are amazing to read and ponder about.

    I normally don’t enjoy reading non-fiction books but Outliers is the only exception to that… (i hated The Secret! )

    keep writing.. 🙂

      Once Outliers is done , the rest need to be devoured:)) I too am nit a huge non- fiction fan except for cricket books, so enjoyed Malcolm Gladwell cause he weaves a nice story to it.
