We all had a very happy weekend, my son had his best time playing with his friends both indoor and outdoor, I too had a relaxed time watching him play football, Domino, monoply, life and many more games with his friend, I clicked lots of photographs. As decided, we didn’t visit any mall but we watched two movies in theater, just my son and me, as my husband had fever and he preferred resting and watching movies in bed at home.
Enjoyed some home cooked food.clicked some photos in the sun and watch my son play.Let’s start with Friday morning after putting some clothes in the washing machine, I made this salad by cutting some persimmons lying on the counter for long and started to shrink a little. I picked some small spinach leaves from the bunch and added them to my salad. To make it more delicious I spoon some basil vinaigrette over. While he and my mother in law preferred to have this salad later, I sat down with my bowl and newspaper and found 4.20 show in the evening just perfectly fits our schedule.
At 4.20 we both settled on our seats with our cup of coffee to watch (Bhopal, a prayer for rain). There, I over hear a lady, who was was telling someone on the phone that she came alone as her kids had refused to come with her to watch such movies. Luckily, my son enjoy these kinds of movies and understands them as well. It was a very sensitive true story of Bhopal gas victims and I could not express what I felt while watching the movie I just hold my son’s hand tight. Whatever happened was so merciless, so painful and so inhuman.
My husband came to pick us up; as he drove the car my son asked various questions about the tragedy and the terms used in the movie. I sat quietly and listened to him, as he answered his questions. Our next day spend in preparing for his FA exams and on Sunday we watch Exodus, another great movie.I made some Persimmon cheese cake too.
