I may be a red girl for other things, but when it comes to roses pink is my favorite. Followed closely by white. Red roses are near the bottom, though I've never turned down flowers of any color or type. Never.
So these are the best of both. Just what I needed on a subzero winter day. These aren't just roses, they are a vase full of hope.
As for the Christmas decorations? Packed away, not in the attic yet, but in their boxes in the basement waiting for final organization before I put them away for good. I came home from work yesterday and sweet husband had taken them all down for me, the toughest part of the job. As they say in blogland, hate me:>) He really is the best! Having the house all emptied of the clutter, I feel more inspired for the next phase of organizing and decorating. Oh, and January cleaning, it's definitely time. More good news? Earl starts a new job tomorrow, It is only temporary but it may be a foot in the door to something better, in any case he feels encouraged and that is a good thing. A big thank you to all of you for your dear encouraging comments. I am slowly making my way around to visit each of you. It may take some time but I will get there. Each comment means so much:>) Thank you!
