Ok, so its not really a BIG move, per se. We are still in Hawaii. We just moved to another apartment. But in terms of hassle, its been a really big one! LOL! We are still setting up our new place. I had no idea that we had bought so much stuff over the past one year. No more shopping for the next one year! :) And I really need to get rid of things. I get attached to stuff pretty soon, so I have an older pressure cooker, that I really shouldn't be needing... because my mom's gifted me a brand new one. I have two boxes full of my practice flowers! Can't use them (because they are all different) and can't throw them (because mostly, nothing's wrong with them!) . I have beads, that I don't use anymore (I used to dabble in jewelry once, no time anymore. But I have beautiful and pretty expensive beads...). A whole lot of extra stuff? Do all ladies have these... unused things, which we just can't throw away? :) Or is it just me? It would be interesting to know.
Even while we were moving stuff, I'd keep doing my flowers whenever I had a few minutes. My husband - Sarang- got so mad at me! :) LOL! Somehow I have this dreadful feeling that if I don't do my flowers for even a day, I will forget how to do them.
Now, coming to the new apartment - Its a beautiful place. And its got central A/C (not such a common thing in Honolulu) and a DISHWASHER (that makes me want to dance .... its one housejob less!) too. These we did not have in our previous apartment. We also have a peekaboo of the Pacific Ocean in this one . And we have a much needed Lanai (that's what we call balconies in Hawaii). A lot to love in this new place. But we will sure miss our old one as well... it had red accent walls and was open on 3 sides. But well, you gain some, you lose some. I have put up some photos of my new place. I hope you like them.
Oh! I forgot to tell you the BIGGEST news from the past week... Nella, my bride from the United Kingdom... sent me links to her wedding photos. I was so thrilled! As I mentioned before, she got married in a Scottish Manor. And my flowers looked so grand there. For a moment, I thought, "Wow! Those flowers look great!", when realization struck me that I actually MADE those flowers and being tough on myself, I reminded me - that I shouldn't get carried away, and I shouldn't get complacent and that I have to do better and I can do better :). Its something that has been instilled in me... that if I feel proud about what I have achieved, I will never improve on my achievements. So, I just feel happy, do a reality check and move on... striving to do better the next time. Ok, now I don't want to sound like a pompous fool! So I shall stop talking about how wonderful I am :). Anyway... coming back to Nella, she will be sending me a CD soon. As soon as I get it, I shall upload some photos for everyone to see!
Alright, got to get back to work now.... the setting-up-home kind of work. Not the nice flower-making kind of work :(. But I'll be back ... and soon.
PS: I think this is the longest post I have ever written. LOL!
