Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “sky’s the limit.” Write about something that has or seems to have no end. Enjoy!Linda’s SoCS prompt
This is an easy prompt for me today, because our architect told it just today morning
In my mother tongue there’s a saying “maduve maadi noDu, mane katti nodu” meaning “Perform a wedding or build a house …. and see..” referring to how the money just flows out of the pocket in these two events. They are the most challenging to plan with respect to finances. I’m talking about an average middle class Indian family. The total expenses exceed budget in a drastic way if we neglect a little.
We were discussing budgeting of the house we are going to build. Our architect showed us a project he had worked on recently. It was beautiful and elegant. We loved it. Every inch was neatly done. He said the cost of interiors there is equal to the initial estimate of construction of our house!!
He gave us many examples and ended the conversation saying .. “if you have money to spend on building a house, sky is the limit”.
Neither do we have that kinda money nor we fancy that very posh look, so we settled for something midway . If sky is the limit, we settled for the first layer of atmosphere, for that’s our reality😊
