SOL #25 - March 25th
It is day 25 of the Slice of Life March, a wonderful challenge being held by Stacey and Ruth at "Two Writing Teachers". Less than a week to go - this month has gone by quickly.
We were shopping Sunday afternoon at Costco and it was packed. Shopping there is not one of my favourite things to do - except for visiting the book section. And again, I did not leave without a book ( and a magazine)
"Stretching for 50+/ Core Strength for 50+ by Dr. Karl Knopf looks to be the perfect book for what I need now. My flexibility, especially in my knee is poor. I start a new round of physio today.
My husband bought me a spring bouquet of flowers.This is his favourite place to buy flowers - usually roses.
He has done this almost every 2 weeks (unless we have a plant) since we started dating 13 years ago. That is a lot of flowers,.We both love flowers on our dining room table. They are lovely to look at and smell. They do give joy
.One of my joy cards (which I have been making regularly this year - it is my word of the year) fits this well.
I had been talking about this with the secretary at my school.at Valentine's. My husband had sent me roses at school and she had brought them to me. I told her that he does this every 2 weeks or so. She said her husband had better not waste their money on flowers - they just die. She would rather have a sweater!
Yes, the flowers will die eventually, but they do give so much joy while they are here.
What's your opinion?
