hmmm…. well for the past week ive been living with my cousin cuz she had some really bad backpain and found out it was slipped disc and so has been ordered by the doctor to not get out of bed. She’s not allowed to move much and since her husband and kids are also out of town I’ve been taking care of her and helping her out. I’m actually bugged with myself because with all the exercise and weight I’d lost recently I’ve gotten quite lazy staying here.. no proper schedule… so waking up whenever… haven’t worked out for at least the last 10 days… eating all the yummy sinful things in the world… I’m disappointed at my lack of self control… ugh… I’m honest to god looking forward to getting back to my apartment and living on my own and getting back into my own swing of things… waking up early exercising, eating healthy, working diligently, doing other stuff like yoga, making the time to write, reflect, spending time talking with my boyfriend… i just feel so flustered right now because theres nothing grounded in my life when i rotate around someone else’s schedule… i’m not lost i just feel like life is too busy for me and i need my space, peace and tranquility…
with diwali coming up and my cousin bed ridden I helped her do all the diwali shopping for the family.. I bought 8 salwar kameez fabrics, 20 saris, 2 dupattas, 1 kurta, 1 kurti, 3 skirts, 1 dhoti-kurta set, 1 double bed spread, 3 pairs of silver orissa filigree earrings, 4 curtains, and umm that’s about it..
I also wrapped all of it mind you and wrapped some shirts that my aunt had bought for some other relatives along with 2 sets of socks… shopping, wrapping and everything it was a fun hectic chaotic experience. Since I did all the shopping I got to pick out what I got for diwali.. instead of picking out a salwar kameez set which I really don’t wear often I decided to pick up a really pretty chikan work dupatta… chikan work is so delicate and pretty… chikan is a type of specialized embroidery from Lucknow. I picked out a pretty blue dupatta which I can even use as a shawl… I’ll take a pic of it when I get it but for now here’s an image so you get an idea of what chikan work looks like….
Anyways I’m exhausted after all that diwali shopping so this is where I disappear. This light is turned off.
