Our house finally got sold ... Thank God for that :) :)
It will be another blog post for why ;)
The month of August and half of July was spent in looking for rental apartments in Edmonton, sorting through stuff, packing and moving .. we have moved into our new apartment and now we are unpacking and trying to go through things that we might have to give up as we do not have that much space .. moving is a pain .. but downsizing is a bigger pain ...
I am definitely missing our last home (house) .. but am happy about the fact ... that the amount of work to maintain the place will be reduced and we will not have to shovel any snow ...
I unpacked my Sarees yesterday and was thinking about draping one this morning .. went to bed after 12 last night and was really tempted to sleep extra 30 minute this morning .. but I did not :)
The mornings and evenings are getting cooler and am not sure for how long - will it be OK to drape a Saree .. it was a bit cold this morning too and I felt it as I stepped out of the building to walk to the train station ..
There was another question in my head while getting ready ... will I be OK taking the stairs down to the station? I said to myself "only one way to find out" .. So, when I was going down the stairs .. had to be very careful .. making sure .. I don't trip on my own Saree ..
The Saree that I draped this morning was bought in 2001, while going through the MBA Program in Anand .. I am sure some of you might have heard about the Tribhuvandas Foundation (TF) .. if not here is some new information for you :)
TF was registered as a charitable trust in 1975 to improve health facilities in rural areas in Kheda district in Gujarat and in addition to that it provides a source of income to women by engaging them in handicraft activities ..
We had to do a study on one of the projects being run by TF and after the meetings I decided to check out their handicraft store .. the store had beautiful bed sheets and cushion covers with patch work and embroidery, bags with mirror embroidery work and tie and dye Sarees .. needless to say .. I bought a lot of stuff including two Sarees .. in two different colors .. one in beige/brown and one in grey .. I no longer like beige/brown color .. but oh well ..
Selfie in the train .. as DH walks to work now and I commute on a train instead of a bus ..
another selfie .. outside the office building .. to capture the beautiful summer blooms ..
I can't really do good selfies .. so asked a co-worker to click my picture .. thank you :)
It was really windy so had to hold on to my palla from it being "hawa me udta jaye"
Not sure if these blue shoes go with the rest of the outfit .. but didn't have too much time in the morning and grabbed whatever I could see ;)
