Day 008 – Wanted: Time Travel

I have always been fascinated by time travel in any book, movie or TV show that I have come across. Knowing full well the possible ramifications of messing with time, I still want it. I have had an amazing Saturday but there are so many things that I would still like to do. I wish I could live the same day 4 or 5 times over. Just imagine if that were possible. You could have a 10 day break over the weekend before you had to get back to work on Monday. But since that is not yet our reality, I have to be content with having done only one-fifth of what I imagined I would do today.

The BIG TASK this weekend was to sort my clothes and purge the things I do not need anymore. Just like with the books last weekend, throwing things away is very challenging for me. I am quite sure there were many more outfits that I could have purged but I am too attached to. Nevertheless, I did purge quite a bit and I think my very limited shelf space is going to be grateful. This was also a good excuse to try out clothes that I have literally not worn in years and I wonder when I will again. It seems fantastical to remember the times of going to office everyday. Choosing an outfit every morning was such an agonizing task. I think I’m ok not to go back to it anytime soon. Only my poor clothes will suffer from neglect and gather dust. I think I can live with that.

I cooked today but quite typically for me, forgot to click pictures. One was a dahi chicken and the other was a pesto pasta dish. I was inspired to cook because I wanted to send a care package to my friend who is down with COVID. It made a welcome addition to my day. The weather has been awesome today after the rains last night so my time spent in the kitchen was not accompanied by the usual buckets of sweat. The dahi chicken turned out pretty great, even if I say it so myself. I will await reviews on the pasta

In an effort to save up the last remaining Star Trek Discovery episode, I started watching a newly released Netflix show called ‘Stay Close’. It is based on a novel by Harlan Coben whom I have not read. But the genre is just right. I love all crime shows but the detective shows set in the UK are just the best. I have watched Broadchurch and Shetland twice each and a number of others which escape my memory at the moment. This one is looking to be a great addition to my collection.

I finished reading ‘Beautiful World, Where are You’ last night and I was extremely pleased with (a) the happy ending and (b) the fact that I finished the book in one week straight. I am now torn between the impulse to start another book by the same author or to pace myself and read something else instead. I browsed a few listicles about books to read if I like this author. But the first thing each of those articles say is to read her other books if not done so already. Since it looks like the internet gods have pretty much given me a sign, I think that is what I will now do.

Until next time, Cheers!
