NaBloPoMo Nov.17 How I spent my time yesterday Ranu’s post
It was Saturday. I did not plan to do anything,but concentrate on my daily routine,so I translated a song and wrote the daily prompt.
My daughter suddenly said,”Mom do you want to go to Fabricville?” She wanted to look at some fabric for a dress. Her motivation was some of them are on sale. Why don’t we go and check it out. My theory is if I just do window shopping,it will be fine.But O no, the fabric on sale were too attractive to just window shop.I had to have at least enough material to wear as a sari. Then I had to buy matching fabric for the long skirt and blouse.
Instead of helping Selina. I was busy buying for myself. I was pleased. I ignored the fact I had five or six sarees I did not wear yet. I thought about Auntie Jean,when I was going crazy buying the fabric. She was a sweet heart. Once she remarked, “Chaman,you have so many sarees,you have to live to be a hundred to wear all these”. If she were alive,she’d say two hundred I think. Well I certainly don’t want to live that long, I am thinking of Shakespeare’s poem,’All the world’s a stage,especially the last part,sans teeth , sans hearing etc.”
I love shopping, if I call it quits today,I am sure my things will come in handy for someone. I had a good time at the fabric store.It’s all about having a great time,doing something I love.
