1. When my sister was going through a divorce and had 2 smallish kids she always bought herself a small bouquet of flowers every week. She said it was a reminder to treat herself well and bring some happiness to her days.

  2. Good evening Brenda,
    Flowers are indeed a girls best friend. Trader Joe’s always has so many beautiful flowers! And cheese, and nuts and tasty treats! I will be going there tomorrow and I think I will pick myself up some flowers! Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. So nice are the flowers..Beautiful. Everyone in 2021, deserves lots of flowers. I always think fresh flowers are well worth the cash…though I seldom treat myself. Enjoy the Season. Thanks for sharing..your home and afternoon always sounds and looks cozy. :0)

    1. I would not normally treat myself. But Trader Joe’s just has them so cheap. I don’t think I’ve had fresh flowers in about a year. I have to be careful where I put them because of Ivy.

  4. Those flowers are beautiful and so soothing to look at. Enjoy your Roses and fireplace.

  5. Show us your tree, Brenda. Have you posted it already and I missed it? The roses are gorgeous…food for the soul, my grandmother called them.

    1. Yes, I have posted it. Just go back in the posts and you’ll see it. I’m sure I’ll be posting it more during December.

  6. I will pick up some flowers just because they make me happy! I love the picture of your sleeping beauty Ivy.

  7. The yellow roses are beautiful. Good for you to treat yourself to something so nice!
    I am glad to hear you are going to physical therapy. I am sure it will help you !

  8. My favorite color of roses!!! We have a Trader Joe’s nearby so I think I will try it out if I ever get to leave the house. Maybe in 2021 or so. I don’t miss grocery shopping but I do miss going to other stores. Maybe Trader Joe’s will get me hooked. Do they have good yogurt?? Thanks.

  9. Good for you – I so agree with buying yourself flowers! The roses are just beautiful. Trader Joe’s has nice flowers and plants – how I wish there was one close to me. They have the best things there.

  10. Your yellow roses are so beautiful. Isn’t there a song “The Yellow Rose of Texas?” That’s you, Brenda. I was extremely lucky this year to get a very late crop of white hardy mums that I didn’t think would make it this year. I clipped two large bouquets over 2 days and they lasted for a full month before they started to fade less than a week ago. They made me smile every single day because I am in and out of my kitchen and dining area where they were (since replaced with Christmas decorations) all day and night. What a wonderful gift they would be – to others, and to one’s self.

  11. The flowers are beautiful. Monday I was out and about running a long list of errands and drove right past a brand new Trader Joe’s. I was tempted to stop in just to get some flowers. My immediate thought was “you don’t need to buy yourself some flowers”. Ugh! I need to be kinder to myself. Next time I’m out I’m definitely going to get some flowers. 🙂
    I, too have been enjoying the lights on my tree. Big Sigh!

  12. My fave are yellow roses too. They’re beautiful!
    Ivy looks like a precious little angel.

  13. Fresh flowers are always such a treat. What a cozy scene you have.

  14. The roses are beautiful they look like sunshine Have a great day
