I've been pretty busy in the kitchen this week. When I bought the food for this week, I did my customary glance at the flowers for sale in the corner of the produce section and decided to skip it... there wasn't much that caught my eye and I was in a bit of a rush. I came home, put away the groceries and moved on to the next thing.
Oh how I missed my little weekly bunch of flowers! Each time I peered over the ledge in our kitchen to our dining room, I missed them. As I set the table for lunch, I missed them. When I cleared the dishes and crumpled napkins, I missed them. So today I bought a bunch of roses and made up a little bouquet with pink wax flowers (I think!) and eucalyptus that I already had. Normally I keep things simple by just choosing one flower to fill a vase, but the starkness of our January seemed to call for a little bit of opulence.
What is your favorite pick-me-up?
