Weekly Macro

Oh! It's already Sunday night! Whoa! The week flew by so fast. Damn! My work is eating my time away! I hate this. I do accept that you work to earn your bread but where's the time to enjoy the bread you earned. People talk about dedication and when you say, 'No! I can't stretch anymore!' you get stamped with 'Attitude problems' and 'No dedication' stamps. People these days are so busy at work that they don't have a LIFE! One of my colleague at work had to extend her shift for continuous 20+ hours in the name of 'REQUIREMENT'. I thought, 'Man! World is going crazy.'
Ahem... Sorry about the whining. I couldn't help it. I seriously hope people change and work culture changes before people lose themselves.
BTW, I did manage to wake up early this week and capture this beautiful photos of my newly mature Balsam. Isn't she a beauty?

Yes, a beauty. A agree with you on the work thing. It is a daily grind and hardly a second to enjoy the money or life.

I love to joke around by asking people why I cannot get paid to stay home and take care of my home and garden! Wouldn't that be the life? Your balsam is lovely! I'm glad you included the scientific name, because now I can see it's a type of impatiens.

Hi Tina: Oh, thank you for making me feel better about working thing :)

Robin: That WOULD be LIFE! I totally agree! If you can see faces through Internet, I have a big smile reading your comment. Thank you SO MUCH!
Yes, it is a famous plant here, that flower being dear to Lord Siva and yea I try to remember all the scientific names as best as I can.

Thank you, gardenerprogress :)

She is a beauty!

Have to say I must agree about your working too much not to be able to enjoy the fruit of your labours. :(

Chandramouli S said...

Ahhh! Thank you ma'am. That makes me feel a lot better. Hope things change soon!

When you work you have no time time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. When you're not working, you don't have any fruits to enjoy.

Somehow, we must find the balance.

I so understand the working thing. I feel like I don't have time to work. I have too many other things I want to do in my garden.( of course then I would not have very much money) LOL
Sometimes at work I daydream about what I want to do in my flower gardens, at least I can escape for a little while.
All of the pictures are lovely, I especially like the Chrysanthemum and the orange rose,

Said true, Marie :) I'm really sorry for the late reply. Somehow I missed your comment.

Machelle: LOL, yes. Ahhh! I do the day dreaming too! Glad you liked the stay and hope you'd come back :). Have a nice day.
