Flowers for February

It's my first post for the month. What comes to mind in February are red flowers. I did not get any flowers yet this month so I bought them for myself, as I do most of the time :). I love them, I get them. I am not fancy, either. Almost any flower would do. They brighten a room and my day. Even little Josiah perks up when he looks at them.



My co-worker gave me an of-season scent candle--peppermint. I actually use peppermint scented oil whether it is the Christmas season or not. I love the sweet mint smell of it.





I bought little Josiah a special pacifier to put fresh fruits in. He loves it. What a great invention. Here he is sucking a strawberry.

Don't you want to put a kid on a penny a ride horsie in the grocery store?

Little Josiah did not care so much about the Superbowl last weekend. I sure enjoyed watching him though.

Here, Josiah entertained himself with an inflatable ball. He did not care so much about the other boy's 3rd birthday celebration and gifts. He did enjoy the birthday cake though.

I read an old book The Power of Habit. I did not like it before but rereading its summary from the StoryShots app caught my interest. I might apply its suggestions for building good habits and make it automatic kinda like brushing our teeth.

I just had a Zoom video meeting (a free app) for short meetings. It is convenient to meet this way with my nursing volunteer nursing group. The road is not so bad but it is still icy in some areas (like my cul-de-sac).

That is my week on a ramble. I am thankful for another smooth week.

Ten Things of Thankful

Comments

  1. I read something once about habits in that they take a comparatively short amount of time to establish, like 21 days or so.
    Have a good week.

  2. What a clever product! A pacifier that you can put fresh fruit inside.
    I had no idea that there were still penny rides for kids! Then again, I haven't priced any lately, but just assumed nothing costs only a penny anymore.
    A lot of peppermint is grown in our state, and I love driving by a field of it and taking in the wonderful aroma.
    Is StoryShots kind of the modern day Cliff notes? HaHa

    1. Yes, indeed. Modern-day Cliff notes, I like that.

  3. Nice that you could stay home when the roads were icy. We had snow days in our area this past week, too.
    The flowers are pretty!

Six Sentence Story: Green Coat

He tore my green, soft, favorite coat, the one I wore so much. I felt I was not the one he wanted me to be, not anymore.  All good things must come to an end, or should it be just the bad? Clutching my torn coat and shutting the door in front of him, tears shed from my burning eyes. I said goodbye. It is his loss, not mine.
