Things happening around new house

After shifting home to the new place, life moves at slow pace but not the time that run fast. I run out of time everyday and I plan something (but nothing important) to do but I couldn't complete it quite and feel disappointed at the end of the day. I’m distracted by something’s I don’t want to reveal and go away from what I suppose to do, but I could come back touch with things anytime and there is nothing urging to complete something. I spent most of the time reading, blogging, listening to music (never on earphone) and flickring rather experiencing something new or look after other things that interest me. A month has yet to compete since shifted home, I haven’t took out any other plan I wanted to carry out with the house and I need to fix the nest box and bird-feeders somewhere and work on gardening the space left around the home.

Vegetables

But I’m no more urge to do things all of sudden and they can happen anytime later or after the end of summer. The days are very hot and tiresome since summer began and the temperature was soaring (even Chennai feels better than other districts and states of India) still it bears tremendous heat everyday and staying inside is better than doing things at exterior. I was also at urge of traveling. Summer memories are haunting me to think about vacation or go in search of nature but thinking about weather and holiday crowd I could only getaway at the end of opening schools (the first week of June).

Life travels on timetable, as usual everyday which keep away things and thoughts unnecessary, I fell prey sometime to distraction which goes on and off like power pulled in and out at the outskirts of Chennai and other cities. We faced troublesome situation once shifted home and the electric here had been low and the transformer near the house burst into lightening few times… but they are much better right now and after changing the electric board at home and looked after transformer by EB staffs, there is no electric problem for more than a week now. Unless the usual two hour power off.

Road roller
In our previous house in apartment I couldn't watch the road activities well unlike this home, which has wide windows to not miss anything happening around. I see vegetable vendor come around pedaling his tricycle and Soan Papdi vendor pushing his cart and ringing bell all the way through the silent afternoon and corporation workers sweeping the road in morning and come whistling to collect garbage in mobile dustbin. There’s a road roller parked close to our house, standing as an identity to find out our house easily and it seems standing for a while under the shadow of tree. Still the neighbors exist as strangers and they just glance at us and look after their jobs.

Being shifted close to beach, I haven’t done a visit yet and even we settled well something kept rose to look after settlement.  I don’t find anything negative about this house except the summer heat (with no upper portion, the sunlight fall directly on the roof to insert heat but the cool sea breeze comfort well near windows) and there are one or two mosquitoes to bite in evening and they last only between 6-7 pm. The one who rejoice a lot was our pet dog Maya, she go around the house freely and was kept unchained unlike resisted within home while staying in flat. I think pets are not comfort growing in flats and they are only to wander freely in individual house.

oh, you have a sweet pup! i'm glad she has more freedom, now.

sounds like you are still adjusting. i'm sure the heat is keeping you inside and feeling a little bored or restless.

You have lot to see around your house. A view of the road and the activities there makes it interesting.

Moving can be such an adjustment, but it sounds as though your new place is very nice. It's wonderful that you're near a beach and you have large windows to see out - and you dog is so cute. I'm glad she's happy to have more freedom.

your pictures are always so vibrant and full of life...

What a sweet dog. And those vegetables look delicious!

Destination Infinity said...

Awesome dog you have. I too think that pets should not be kept chained, they should be allowed to roam freely around the house. If it's an independent house, they can roam around the house too!

Moving out and into a new place is a whole new beginning, i'd say! Good luck and God bless.

Maya is beautiful!! It's so neat that you have a good view of the road activities. I hope you are liking your new place!!

George said...

I've had trouble getting into a routine each time I've moved to a new place, but I'm sure you will soon be into a routine that works for you. I'm glad the windows in the new home allow you to view the road so well. Maya is a cute pet.

Moving to another home is always hard --even if it's better overall. You will gradually get things done, but since it is so hot outside there now, you are smart to put off some of that work until the weather gets cooler. Glad you have a good view of the street though... You can see all kinds of interesting things!!!! Glad your sweet doggie loves the new home.

Hugs,
Betsy

Hope your new abode will be a dream abode. It is very important that wherever you stay you enjoy the surroundings and it makes the mind feel good in the midst of scenic locales. nice clicks!

Summertime is inactive time. I also feel tired to do any constructive work, except in the mornings. By 11 a.m. Hyderabad is hot and our energies are sapped. I simply huddle in the only cool room and wait for the season to end soon.

Monsoon will come over ,and life will be back to brisk routine soon.
All the best.

Pattu Raj said...

Oops , forgot to add mention of your Dog Maya. I am sure she will flourish in the new home. Our dogs too are so possessive of the house, they wont let any other dog /cat come near.

The blog is absolutely fantastic. Lots of great information and inspiration, both of which we all need. Thanks

Meoww said...

I really do miss the sounds of the Indian roads with the vendors! It is an amazing experience to live in an individual home and walk out to get the fresh veggies! Oh you have made me sooo homesick now....
