Happiness in Life is Made

"O, happy the soul that saw its own faults" – Rumi

Time and tide wait for no man

on January 29, 2012

Some mothers may find this difficult – that is to just spend the day doing nothing. So far, that is exactly what I have been doing. I am waiting for the Australian Open 2012 Man Final Tennis and that is the only itenary on my diary (not that I have one) today. Munawwar has been very busy this weekend with his work from office. The kids are busy with their new kitchenette and pots and pans we get for Najdah for her upcoming 4th birthday.

When I went for groceries shopping last Friday I thought I might want to cook something special for lunch this weekend. So much for planning and all I managed to get done today was fruit and nuts cupcakes for brunch. As the day unfold, I can only stare at the cookbook and found the pictures of the food staring back at me. There was no magical moments, no sign whatsoever, no chemistry. It was kinda ironic that we get our daughter to play cooking while the mother herself has no intention to even look at the kitchen *sigh*

Finally, I seek help from our humble refrigerator, took out the frozen  processed food and whipped up chicken burgers. The guilty debate will continue, I know.

Just as we finished eating lunch, I have already asked the boys what they want for dinner: is it pumpkin soup? Munawwar shook me out of my dream just as I took out the dry bay leaf from the pantry and noticed that we only have half of the white loaf left. Or maybe tom yum soup? That sounds much better considering that there is rice vermicilli noodle available. As I am typing this, I remembered that there is Naan bread ready to be eaten and all I need is to cook a vegie curry or maybe lentils curry.. oh my, suddenly the chioce is endless.

What the heck. I will keep the eagerness to cook dinner till later. For now I will settle with my book, before cheering for Raphael Nadal soon.
