Sunday Solitude !

On Sunday, I decided that today I will keep myself away from all distractions. So I switched off my Laptop and the TV.
There was on one at home. It rained the whole day, so i couldn't even go anywhere. 
But I didn't mind it. Because I had the best company one could ever hope for !


I discovered that there is something very comforting in the sound of rain falling softly around you. And that there is no perfume on this earth that can match the smell of wet earth ! 



So how did you spend your Sunday !

  3. Ah, I prepared butter chicken for lunch as a special treat for hubby on Father's Day. He had made breakfast :). I caught up on my episodes of Law and Order that I record during the week, helped younger one with homework, and in between kept going back to Outliers that I am reading again. The weather is blissful! Maid had taken off so had to do utensils while others did the cleaning. Not exactly an uneventful day but this is as uneventful as it gets in my life :).

  17. What did I do this sunday? I hate watching TV and so in normal weekdays after a hectic 9 to 5 job I need only writing to fill evenings and of course cooking (need of the hour :|) but come sunday and there is one thing I need. Morning 10 to 12.30 of unadulterated friends on Zeecafe. I found this very recently that season nine was being aired, and so that is the only tv I watch.

    Sundays are pretty much about being indoors and sitting reading writing. And yes lots of chatting up with husband. With a hectic week, sundays we get time to catch up so thats about it. :-)

    and I envy your books, except for time traveller I havent read the rest. Leme know how are they?
