Fresh Flowers

April 27, 2011 § Leave a comment

Well it’s spring time and my fresh flower buying time is here. Once the Spring arrives  I buy fresh flowers every two weeks. I love live flowers in my home.  In the summer it’s usually Carnations (they are so cheap but look great) and Hydrangeas.  My favorite flowers are Orchids (thou I can’t seem to keep them alive), Hydrangeas and Calla Lilies.

But for Easter weekend I got 3 dozens tulips from Trader Joe’s. Loves it!

The beach in winter

Here’s something to try.  Take a trip to the beach during the winter. I cannot believe how invigorating it is being out there with the cold fresh breeze beating against my face. Oh man, the air is so pure and crisp.

 

I went with a sinus infection and left feeling like a million bucks.

While out there, walking on the sand, we gathered shells for projects with the kids. My nieces and nephew enjoyed it just as much as I did.

As a child I lived less than half a mile from the beach.  At nights you can hear the waves lapping against the shore. On stormier nights, you can hear the Great Atlantic blowing to a fury. Scary and fascinating at the same time.

As an adult I’ve dreamed of owning a house by the beach but now  my new dream is to own one so I can run along the shore during the winter time. Who knew!?

Where Am I?
