Since we moved to our new house, hardly we are getting any
time during the weekends. Every weekend we find some works related to our house
and we go to Lowes or Home depot, and there is no time to relax a bit.
That weekend was not also an exception. Since Saturday
morning we were doing something one after another. Saturday was extremely hot
since morning, but nothing could overpower our enthusiasm to chop down one tree
to give that a good shape. That was another experience. My hubby, who loves to
stay in the bed late during weekend, he also sprang out of the bed with great
enthusiasm to clear our backyard. First time in life he chopped down a ten feet
tree. I didn’t know the name of the tree, but it was causing discomfort to us,
and it was the high time to trim it down to give a clear look of our backyard.
My little son and I were his assistants. Though the little one was disturbing
rather helping, still I wanted to call him as a helper, because, he wanted to
help us wholeheartedly. It was a long and tiring job. There was no time to
|An abandoned bird's nest. We we found it while chopping down the tree.|
In the afternoon we went to Lowes to buy some stuff. I had a plan to making samosa for evening snacks, but when we came home it was already 8 o’clock. So, the evening was already over. It was almost the time for dinner. But I was desperate to make samosas. I asked my hubby whether he wanted to have an early dinner. When he agreed with me, I made samosas as starter and stuffed parathas and chicken for main course. It was still hot at night. My hubby asked why we didn’t have dinner at the pool-side.
That idea sounded very good. In this area, it is very rare to get a chance to sit outside after sunset. So, that was a great chance to sit outside and relax while having dinner. Putting some candles and sitting outdoor during dinner time gave us an immense satisfaction. That added an extra flavor to our dinner. The sweet slightly chill breeze, the twinkling stars, buzzing of different insects created a wonderful ambience, which was truly enjoyable.
Truly speaking, these small pieces of happiness play a major role in our life. The next morning I felt very light, I was just gliding from one work to another instead of dragging myself.
