Just a short, mostly picture oriented post today. Since I was in the Trader Joe’s neighborhood on Monday, I had stop in and pick up a few things. One of those things was a bouquet of flowers for the kitchen table.
Sharing my flowers for a dreary day:
After all the flowers I planted outside over the weekend, I wanted a few to enjoy inside as well. Does anyone know what those weird spiny looking flowers are called? I’m not sure what I did wrong on this photo but one of the reasons I did buy this bouquet was because I thought the red rose added more interest to it. Yesterday afternoon I decided the vase I put the flowers in was way too small and just didn’t look right. So, I changed it. Hey, see that clean kitchen table in the photo above? The flowers make for good incentive! Here’s another view of the flowers in their new vase: Even the rose is happier in its new vase.
These flowers are helping to brighten up the kitchen on dreary, rainy, and cold!? day around here. They are also helping inspire me to keep our table clear.
What aren’t they doing? They aren’t doing the dishes, sweeping the floor, or cooking dinner. They are also not helping with this crazy afternoon craving for chocolate.
Note to self: Do not put clean kitchen on the to-do list the same week you plan to also do a sugar detox challenge. Especially, one very soon after Easter when extra candy is still in surplus. So far, I haven’t caved to the chocolate bars but the temptation is real.
