The past two months away from “dress your home” has been my longest period of absence. Now, it’s time to get my act together and let the creative juices flow.
The tryst with numbers and the complex world of derivatives, balance sheets and economics started sometime late August when I enrolled for Level 1 of the CFA program. Before I know, the 3000 odd pages of equations and laws had engulfed me altogether; it left little energy at the end of the day to write a creative post. So much so that, I stopped having a social life, no weekend outings, no evening playtime in the park, a messy house, no exercising – the boring list just goes on and on. Am I glad it’s over now? The exam was last Sunday but the vacuum is so strong that I’m missing the books already.
Thank god for a BIG surprise that happened early last week (more about it next week) which diverted my attention. And then, I did a fabulous store tour yesterday. I’m glad to be back. Missed you all. Shall reply to all the comments soon. Stay tuned for some exciting action and glimpses of the Middle East.
Leaving you with some lovely pictures of my blooming balcony. The tomato plants are over a foot and half tall now, ready to start flowering anytime soon.
