It rained. It finally rained on Saturday evening!

If you ignore the fact that it was preceded by the worst dust storm of the season that uprooted trees, disrupted electricity, caused terrible traffic jams in addition to making a mess of the house, it was very much welcome. The after effects are still visible. Of the rain, we mean. It is much cooler outside now.

We had a pretty dull weekend. Mummy had to go operate on this emergency case that came in late Saturday night with a huge abscess in his nose. Couldn’t let him wait till Monday. There was every chance that his nasal cartilage would get damaged and his nose would crumple! So early Sunday morning, Mummy left us to fend for ourselves and disappeared for a good part of the day.

Alright. We are exaggerating a little here. Daddy was very much home and he took us for a long walk and play session in the park and Mummy came back home by mid morning.

But the fact remains that she was working on a Sunday morning and we do not approve of this at all.


For some reason, after breakfast, Daddy had this urge to clean out the store room and get the water pipes and air conditioning serviced!

The store and water pipes job was done but Mummy put her paw foot down. No air conditioning service work THIS Sunday. It will disturb the peace for a good part of our already shortened Sunday.

So finally, we got to take a short afternoon nap and had a yummy late Sunday lunch Daddy had fixed.

Daddy loves cooking. He likes to innovate dishes out of the routine stuff we eat everyday. But for a long time now, he hasn’t been getting the time to cook. So Sunday’s surprise lunch was a treat!



(Pasta in White sauce garnished with light fried chicken sausages)



We really love the Met Department. They are just SO dependable. The weather always turns out to be exactly the opposite of what they predict each morning!

Like this front page news on Sunday about Delhites being too happy and smug about the sudden drop in temperatures after Saturday’s storm and that Sunday onwards, next three days will be the hottest.

Well, the cool weather continued throughout Monday and the sun continued to doze behind the clouds!!

Tomorrow is another day…


Hope you all had a great start to your week.

Sounds like everyone had a good weekend except for mom, who had to do surgery. She's a very dedicated doctor to do that on a Sunday.

Not funny that your mom had to work this weekend, right?
The best part of the rain.... is when it goes away!
Take care

Sounds like a great weekend. Mom sure is special for helping all the furry ones. If dad gets bored he could come cook over here

That's a good start to the weekend, in spite of work. :( I know that feeling, I have had to work a lot of complete weekends too.
