Celebrating a Year

September 28, 2010

There is sometimes so much detritus to wade through in life, so many pointless things to fix and do. And the old adage “no good deed goes unpunished” is often all too true. But we soldier on, unappreciated, overtired, under romanced. But at least there are flowers. And for a moment when I look at them– even these old familiars planted next to my driveway just where I get out of the car– they make me smile, every time. Yes, I am crabby today; no you don’t need to cheer me up. The flowers will be enough. How I will miss them when frost arrives.

  2. Well it has been reported that I was ‘crabby’ today…hard to imagine why..I drove 40 miles in heavy traffic for jury duty so that I could sit all day and hear the judge proclaim the merits of being a juror…eight and half hours later…I was on my way home in heavy traffic to prepare my dinner…so that I can return tomorrow for the real jury selection…me ‘crabby’….well where are those flowers any? ;-)

    • Lovely of you to say so, Trisha. I do try not to whine often on my blog– so uninteresting for the readers!

  6. Flowers are always cheery. And you are allowed to be crabby … sometimes we just have to sit with it.
