Sunday Slumbers And Thunders

Day 14 of "2013 Ultimate Blog Challenge" : Sunday Slumbers And Thunders

Yupp. The title says it. "Sunday Slumbers And Thunders". That's all that happened today.

Woke up late. Like really late. 9 am-ish. Spent a lazy hour replying to all the pending comments on my blog. Pottered about in the kitchen and managed to put something together for breakfast. Then Dad asked me if I would file the IT returns online today. I looked up at him, all groggy and confused. Just then, a huge yawn escaped from my mouth. Dad got the message. I was in no state to do the taxes today.

So I tinkered with my blog a bit. Discovered that the twitter feed was not showing up on the Twitter page here. Research showed that the twitter api has changed recently. Previously, there was a blogger.js script, but now there is a widgets.js script instead. I updated the code on my page accordingly. I like this one better now. You can even send me a tweet directly from this page now. And it shows my retweets too. So I won't have to do manual RTs anymore.

In case you are wondering, yes... I was able to tinker with the code even in my half-asleep state. How? I don't know. I guess I'm just talented that way.

Anyway, this blog-tinkering didn't last for long. The "thunders" came into picture here. And they brought some rain too. If you are living in India, or have ever lived in India, then you probably have first-hand experience of this. The slightest downpour in India is sufficient to cause power cuts. That's what happened here too. Power cut.

Since I could no longer work on my PC, I decided to use the time to do some Reiki. I actually ended up doing quite a lot of it today, courtesy rain gods and Jaipur electricity board. The rains continued off and on throughout the evening. So did the power cuts. Three healing attunements and over 2 hours of Reiki healing sessions done already today, for different recipients, of course. I even managed to catch up some more on my beauty sleep in the evening! And I'm still sleepy... can you believe that?

After reading this senseless soporific post, I have a feeling you can. I guess I shouldn't bore you any further. But really, I quite enjoyed today. Wish all Sundays were as lazy as today... [insert deep contented sigh here]

This is my 14th post for 2013 Ultimate Blog Challenge.

Why are you smiling, OB?

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Haahh! Richa, at around 9pm, I seriously start thinking about what to post. Then I bug Dad a bit. He just laughs at me. After eating dinner and his head for about 1 hour, I finally step back into my room at around 10, open my blog, check my archives and drafts to see if there are any old ideas stored that I may not have already used. Finally, by about quarter to 11 or 11pm, my post is published. One day over. Start thinking about the next day's post at 9pm next day!

Smita, this post couldn't convey the tone of my mental voice, in which I was writing it. If you'd heard it, then you would have definitely started yawning like me! :P

Yayyyy! My post managed to put at least one person to sleep! I'm so proud of my soporific abilities, Suku! :D :P

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@the little princess - Being reiki-ed? OB should be able to answer that very well.

OB, are you reading this? Care to share your experiences when you were reiki-ed? Perhaps a guest post? :D

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...
