Cold Sunday Melancholy

If every Sunday is like this one, I might be content to stay in and be lazy all day. As it is, I have the place to myself and so my morning has been listening to music, browsing youtube videos and drinking coffee. It’s been raining a lot since last evening and the morning has been breezy and cold. Cold enough to want to snuggle under the covers and go back to sleep.

But since I woke up at 8:40 am I decided that I wasn’t going to spend the entire morning in bed and got up and read the paper at the dining table. My folks have gone to a funeral and will be out for most of the day. I watched tv for a bit – the news, a football special on the goals scored in the EPL last evening and most of a Hope & Faith episode. Then it was more coffee.

At 1 pm this afternoon a rude, loud continous blast of fire crackers hit this lazy Sunday. I suppose that it’s something to do with the end of Ramzan – but wait! Isn’t Eid ul-Fitr supposed to be on Monday? So why the fireworks?

I’m gonna take a long nap later after lunch and watch some sci-fi. I won’t be going out this Sunday as I am kinda short on cash at the moment. It’s almost a month since I’ve had any vodka or gone out for any coffee. It’ll have to wait another or 10 days at the most. It’ll sure be worth the wait.
