The Sound of Music...sooths....

Saturday                                                                                                    14th Sept 2103
My laptop clock time reads 13:51 noon.
"Doe..a deer...a femal deer.".. the TV to my back is singing. (love that movie !!!)
It's lunch time ongoing...very much ongoing...and my smallest can take ages to get his tiny portion of food move down from his mouth to his even slimmer tummy. Feeding the younger ones with my right..the left hand didn't have much to, decided to be writing something down.
You wind up a Friday with so many plans to do the next day, and top n line was to take the boys out to the park or nearby beach to be trying out the various settings of my new DSLR in bright daylight. That was for the plan for last saturday..and today as well....but...damn...all hopes in the drain...
My maid doesn't turn up...AGAIN !!!

well..she's being doing this for quite some time now....scooting jog on Saturday, when am having a day off. And, its the very day that I have so much to do at home...some major cooking, grinding batter for dosa/appam...whatever, for breakfasts the next between the homework, regular sunday tests for our elder.... and this scenario made me really crap.

I was to pick Shayne back from his Maths Abacus class, so without the maid, had to grab the little ones too along with me. Missed the road to his classes, missed the second road too..and ended up going round the entire area getting back to track.
What a great start for a new day !
Wondered, if the badness of Friday, the 13th just reached Middle-East, a day late. Saturday, the 14th.....Humm.

On a positive note, the boys got an early morning ride straight from bed, in their sleep wear...teeths not not done.....either !

(think positively...think positiveeellyyy...that's all you can say to yourself anyways)

Back home..and beign  a SAHM for about 3 years, i knew exactly well how my day was gonna be.

Prepare breakfast, then, it would be time to think abt lunch.

Prepare lunch, feeding, cleaning...

Kids nap time, and other miscellaneous .... browsing, facebook, blog...goes somewhere in between

Prepare dinner, feeding, cleaning.

And not to forget the laundry pile. I dont do laundry on its 2 piles for saturday to wash, and the leftover pile from thursday to fold. I hate "this" part of the clothes, the most.

But...somewhere..things just didnt turn that bad as I thought. "Good ! I liked it !!!"

Listening to the "Pista song" from the moview NERAM while giving breakfast, was just like taking a full dose of an extra-active energizer drink.
It's soo full of are up .....

and ready to be ..on the go !!!!
A very good movie, from the perspective that its the directorial debut of Mr. Alphonse Putharen along with his friends whom he used to meet at a coffee shop in Aluva, Kerala...all with a passion and a dream to make a movie...some day !
Alright ! get back to work ! ..its 11:00 am already.."What's For Lunch, Mommie"..would be the next question in about 2 hrs time. ooh..well.... :/
The rest of the day was just music..some soft, some bold, some nostalgic ..playing from my laptop on top of the kitchen counter, that I ended up making "fish-biriyani" for lunch !
Literally ended up listening to all the songs featured on Music Mojo - Kappa TV. 
One which particularly caught attention was the title name - Maula Mere Maula/Pink Floyd mix, and i was like...Oh my God ! This would be like combining vanilla milk shake with some kerala style spicy salmon-fry".
Hindi music fans knows where"maula mere maula" stands - its way up there ! one of the best songs ever.
And Pink Floyd - for english rockers and psychedelic musci lovers..this group is way up there as well !
And combining these two...? very bold  indeed!
But, reading the full title...i went.."aah! so, its him. In that case, I am definitely not surprised. It was by "Bennet and the Band".  In here, the transition between the two songs is so so soo smooth, just with the single note of a flute, that i literally had to go back to listen it once again.."when in the world did the lyrics change" ?
Have seen him once, perform live, and indeed was really amazed by the way he blends in extreme lines. After all..the Law says.."Unlike charges attract each other". His music blends keeps proving that.


Thats a  picture i have of one of his performances here, live, with Naresh Iyer and Shweta Mohan and one of his bit was such a lovely blend of the old sound track for Titan watches with a hit-tamil number by illayaraja - Ada veetukku veetukku vaasappadi venoo..". It was excellent.
Some others which I ended up listening over and over...
"Ee solomonum...shoshannayum.." brings in that feel of the olden time tradional Christian household. Very solemn a song.
Iktara cover (wake up Sid)
...and so on....
 Music Mojo does features some lovely collection, and got to admit, within no time, my Biriyani was was cleaned..and... graph plot of "crabbiness" vs "time" went down ..just like this.

    But as long as we are happy... at the end of the day no matter how tired we never complain. The smiles and laughter from your children will melt your heart.
