We had a glorious weekend .

Watched a couple of funny movies alone.

Played TT (Table Tennis) with dh till our legs refused to move anymore, while the children splashed around in the pool.

Cooked up a feast that I promptly christened Friday Feast . I made Sambar, carrot/ cabbage poriyal,Chicken Chukka and Chicken 65, appalam, and paal payasam.Everyone just pounced on the food soon as it was lunch time,hence no pictures of the food.I plan to repeat the same next Friday too,I must remember to take a picture,

Had a lovely very relaxing nap in the afternoon.

Hubby and the boys went to A's music lessons in the evening, I decided to stay at home and finish the Quilt as you go quilt for M before his birthday.

All I did was switch on the computer plug, POP went the fuse.

Now the electricity and I have a relationship that even if I live in a country where power outrages are unheard of, it fails- in the neighbourhood I live in or building I live in and if nothing else, atleast in the flat I live in.

As things need to happen to me, the power failed only in my flat. Much of the evening was spent alone ,with no AC in the dark till the Resident Security could fix up the fuse.

I read the Encyclopedia of Quilting Cover to Cover twice while sunlight was still there.After it got dark, I just watched the world go by from my balcony till the guys came back .Guess what, the Power came back as they walked in through the door! :D

Oh wait !!we are not done yet.The next day, the whole neighbourhood had a power failure the entire day, which dh swears is thanks to Jonah Me :)

Anyways, we decided to go out and drive around ,ate burgers in the car and by the time we decided to come back,thankfully the Power was restored .

Alternate power sources supplying power to the substation in our neighbourhood.
