Another Sunday - my only day off, began as usual. At the crack of dawn, while everyone caught up on much needed sleep, there I lay wide awake. Argh. How do people stay so late in bed. (Some of my friends even get up post noon). And specially since I don't acheive much ... just loll the day away. Wrists hurting from being at the keyboard (surfing, playing games etc) and eyes all bleary from the PC and or TV while my list of must do things gets bigger and bigger.
So, morning did indeed show the day: Early to rise and loads of things done! [Or didn't show the day considering the fact that I didn't loll the day away]. Right. I think I got the explanation right. Main things was I got some of my must-do chores done. Well actually only one. But by my standards, Herculean.
I rearranged all my books and CDs and atleast 10 large plastic carry bags [which are propped up, collecting dust just about anywhere since all the almirahs and cupboards and filled to bursting]full of old receipts and bills. Dusty, hot and bothered...I was sifting through the last bag when I found a small black leather purse. That one - god. Eons ago, Swa had given it to me when we used to work at the Internet Consultants in Kolkata. Was it as far back as 1998 or 99? Definitely in the last century. I used it constantly for 3-4 years and then shoved it in somewhere and used others. This one, in perfect condition, lay forgotten but moved with me everywhere I went for the last 10-12 years. I opened it up expecting more ancients bills and found unbelievably - 14 crisp 100 Rupee notes!
Hard work does pay...then.
Not to mention the room is looking much cleaner and nicer. And am looking forward to more cleaning and sprucing next sunday: Who knows what treasure lurks unbidden...somewhere?
