Courting Spring: Fresh Tulips

Hello Friends.

I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful Saturday.  I had so many ideas for things to do today, but winter has attacked my immune system and I don't feel like going out and about.  

Instead, I am going to take care of the necessities, drink plenty of liquids and read some magazines....and blogs of course.  

Has this ever happened to you?  I got up about 4:30 this morning with a sore throat and swollen glands.  I stumbled downstairs, took a Zicam and two Tylenol, let Bosco out, made an ice pack for my throat, and went back to bed.  This morning I could not find the Zicam bottle.....this afternoon I cannot find the Zicam bottle.  

I asked Bosco what happened to the bottle....

He just looked at me.  I have no idea in my semi-comatose state what I did with it.  I'm sure I will find it long after my cold has gone away.  Oh well, what are ya gonna do?

It's February and this is the time of year I start courting spring.  I will start wearing spring colors to work and will start to focus on the new life that spring represents.  

Last night I bought a bouquet of pink tulips and placed them in a Mason jar with a red ribbon tied around the neck.  Don't they compliment the Valentine's Day tablecloth Ashlee bought me?      

They smelled so good; today I can't smell anything, but I'm sure they still hold their sweet fragrance.  I can still enjoy their cheerful blooms.   
 I hope you are enjoying a peaceful, fun, and springlike weekend. 

I am joining Beverly of my first Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound.

  5. I must be a little whacky today La. After reading about the bottle of Zicam missing, Then I read this: "Last night I bought a bouquet of pink tulips and placed them in a Mason jar with a red ribbon tied around the neck". I thought, "oh no, now she lost the jar of tulips". hahaha Feel better and maybe this made you giggle a little. Love ya,

  8. I know what it is like to wake up with something you never felt when you went to bed. Life can be so unfair. It is times like that that I wish I had a private nurse! lol. I hope you feel better soon. The tulips are a wonderful pick~me~up!

  17. LA -- if Bosco is not suffering from a cold, you might want to check him for the bottle...? Lovely tulips and they look so pretty on your new tablecoth. Joni

  18. Bosco is just adorable ~ reminds me sooo much of my sweet Pepper that I loved years ago!

  19. Hi La,
    I think, Bosco didn't know where the bottle is. You will find that in an unexpected moment. Your tulips are wonderful, so cheerful pink. I hope you will feel better, soon.
    Take care,
    greetings, Johanna

  20. La- Hope you're feeling better today. I love the pink tulips---they just say "Spring", don't they. Bosco is just the cutest!

  21. Hope your feeling better soon! If I put something where I will know where it is I can count on never seeing it again.If Bosco could talk I'm sure he knows.
    The tulips are beautiful... come on spring!
