This weekend seems exceptionally lazy. Maybe its the whether...gloomy , rainy and cozy! Its gets nice and cool here in Nasik , unlike the humidity in Mumbai! But watching the streets outside , you just tend to lose the motivation to step out , even it be for leisure. But lazing at home is fun at times though! Just sit back and watch the rains , grab a cup of tea and chill! Its only these rains which gives homemakers like me a chance and a reason to relax....
