I had been planning a post on today’s random events, nothing remarkable, just a nice lazy Sunday. However, I kept holding it off for one reason or another: finishing the last few episodes of a series I had been watching, lying in bed when the room was much cooler today thanks to the rains, and general lazing around. But GM‘s post inspired me to get the post out anyway. 🙂
I really like the kind of Sundays when I get a bunch of stuff done and still have some time to spare. Today was just that. I made a 100% wholewheat bread in the morning. I got this new fancy and expensive yeast that I had been wanting to try. I debated over whether to spend 200 Rs. on yeast when you generally get it for 30 Rs. But then in the end I figured, it was time to upgrade, plus I do really love to make breads. So here it is. The yeast is great, and now I have industrial quantities of it, enough to make exactly 100 loaves. heeee. Bread recipes on my food blog.
I then made some mint juleps. Well modified versions with Old Monk rum. It was delicious, and more so because it was made from the mint I grew. Ah satisfaction!
I am slowly trying to switch to all organic food. Part of this involves buying fruits, veggies, and groceries from thehealthybuddha.in. Since I am switching to organic anyway, I might as well do more healthy stuff. I have been planning to eat flaxseeds every morning since a long time, but I just can’t swallow the seeds plain. So I made a big batch of flaxseed chutney powder to have with my daily breakfast, on toast, or sprinkled over oatmeal.
Then a spent a LOT of time just looking out the balcony. Everything looked so beautiful and flushed with the lovely drizzle. Plus, I got some plywood planks yesterday to put over the railing of the balcony. The iron bars had too much gap to hold my plants steadily, so I just put these planks on top to make a bigger and more even surface. Now it all looks much neater.
So basically, all I mean by having a lovely Sunday is a Sunday spent pottering around the house doing nothing in particular, and then skipping showering too…because you know it’s okay in the cooler weather! 😀
