Missed Day: 1

Yep, missed a day in my blog-a-thon. Not my fault this time though. It's just that Abhi had a holiday yesterday. Have you ever noticed that if your spouse has a holiday and you don't, your work/things-to-do still gets into slow mode? Always happens to me!

Let me tell you something interesting that happened yesterday... While at the supermarket, Abhi and I happened to notice a flyer announcing a discount sale at a furniture store we like but think is somewhat overpriced! We were delighted: we had been eying a futon there for some time; now was the time to get it for a steal!

We rushed to the store in the evening, all gleeful smiles and bulging pockets. The futon was there all right, and on sale too. In fact, we would have gotten 1,000 bucks off the marked price! It's just that we noticed that the marked price was nearly 1,000 bucks above what it had been last month. So much for the 'discount' sale! Well, anyways, we got to admiring the furniture as usual and ooh-ed and aah-ed over some lovely pieces that we planned to buy with a windfall. Fingers crossed.

Just as we were leaving a splash of red caught my attention. Abhi had noticed it too! It was a great looking lounger with a footrest; nothing fancy schmancy, just clean lines and a very relaxing experience when you sat in it. And then something strange happened. Abhi, who is normally hesitant to make a big-bucks purchase without days of deliberation (by which time the object of desire has doubled in price, as has happened to us), pulled out his wallet and made an advance payment on the spot.

Well, well, if that wasn't love at first sight! Or should I say, first sit? The lounger comes home--to our breezy balcony--on Saturday! Can't wait!

Wow...that was a surprise catch. It's a lovely bright lounger indeed...checked it out couple of months ago when I visited the place for the usual 'drooling over furniture' session.
Now I know where to head for a relaxed time with a cuppa coffee...your balcony!!! Here I come..
