Saturday was spent just lolling around the house, I cooked up some simple dal roti for lunch, I started and finished an article (on interior design for schools) I am writing for a friend who publishes a teaching magazine, we lazed (with great difficulty), we watched some TV and then in the evening went to an exhibition in Shilparamam - the arts and crafts village here in Hyderabad, somewhat similar to Dilli Haat, but on a larger scale. I knew exactly what I wanted, a Madhubani painting in very specific colors for my next DIY which I am planning, (hint - going to try decoupaging an old wooden trunk my mom gave me) and my dad wanted some khadi kurta pajamas! So we were done in precisely half an hour!! Ate some food at the stalls there and headed home.
Sunday morning I got all my lamps cleaned and polished....they were getting dull, and I filled them with lamp oil and wicks to light in the evening.
Then I did something really unusual for me..I watched a Hindi movie in its ENTIRETY, an all time favorite, Sholay....from noon until 4.50pm!! Yes, almost 5 hours of brain numbing fun with Basanti, Radha, Veeru, Jai, Gabbar Singh and Thakur Saab! I think the weather had a role to play, it was cool, damp, rainy perfect for movie watching! And it really is the greatest story ever told!
In the evening I lit a couple of lamps to make the house look festive and welcoming for the gang returning home from Chennai!
That was my weekend in a nutshell. Nothing too exciting, but it was relaxing and unhurried with a little bit of everything thrown in...some good food, TV viewing, some work, some shopping, some quality dad daughter time spending!!!
