rearview mirror

i cant believe how time has rolled by. some days amble along slowly, but most others just zip past, and before i know it, another whole day has come and gone. in a few days it will be four months since we moved here and started our lives together.

when i came here in march, i told myself this.

today in retrospect, i think im doing quite alright on that check-list of things.
- get back to a fufilling routine -- done! thought the zip by, not a day goes by when i feel wasted or unfulfilled. i cherish my daily routine, my things to do, and it gives me a sense of purpose and joy in accomplishing little things.
- exercise everyday -- pilates and a good long run -- done! well almost. when it was hotter i was pretty regular with the walks and the running. then i started swimming everyday. since the rains have started coming down, the swim has been erratic, but i promise to find a substitute and get down to some form of exercise again. soon!
- cook and explore the domestic side of me -- SO done!
- NOT hoard unnecessary clutter, no matter how much sentimental value something might threaten to emotionally entangle me with! -- done! in fact i have even decided to further de-clutter and take back to bangalore some of the things i own/have, but have no immediate use for in goa.
- paint and rediscover water colors -- done! to a certain extent. i made a beginning, but didnt sustain it. i MUST get down to it.
- explore easy, cheap, DIY furniture options -- done! as much as we could have at this point..
- try my best live an easy, simple, uncomplicated and hassle free life -- done! but this is a continuous process. work in progress, if i can call it that!

Does that mean you decided to clutter your mom's home instead? :D
