This is my bouquet that is only a lovely memory now. I needed a picture to post and this allows me to enjoy the flowers again. I've had a great day. My china closet was a dust 'bowl' and so I carried everything to the kitchen and gave all the depression glass a sudsy bath. The top shelf holds the yellow glassware, the next one down the green and then the pink things I have. Not a lot by some standards but enough to keep me busy for an hour or was that 2?, soaping them up and rinsing just as fast as I could go...smile. Then I hung my new country/french plate rack and its just very satisfying to have gotten so much done. I'm sure you know just the very way I feel. I'd like every day or so to wash a wall or tackle a bookshelf and get the winter's worth of dust bannished from my castle. And if that wasn't satifying enough, I took in the shoulders of the dress I am wearing with my new Husqvarna Interlude sewing machine. It did a beautiful job, I couldn't believe how well the alteration turned out. Should I confess what supper is?? Hmmm, this is the first time in forever? that we have....did you guess? tv dinners in the oven. What fun....=). Hope you've had a good day...a day that minded its manners and was sweet to its mistress.

Gosh, who would have thought that a simple suggestion about photographing flowers to preserve the memory, would have been taken so seriously? Not me - LOL! But these flowers are certainly worthy of the photo.
WOT? TV Dinners?? Never in my household! Well, maybe the odd chicken and chips from down the road...
