How to Beat the Gray...{30 of 31 Slice of Life}

I was greeted at the grocery store with the floral department today and got a bit distracted from my mental refill the fridge grocery list.  I scanned the floral department for daffodils and didn't see any.  Then I saw tulip bud bunches.  I pondered the price and it was okay.  My shopping goal was close to home, easy, and get what we need today.  I remembered the current weather conditions; gray gray sky with nonstop rain since we landed at 8:06am.  Yesterday I captured my thoughts on a week of sunshine and that was all I needed to take the tulip purchase plunge.  I had a few color choices; pink, yellow, red, and an orange and yellow combination.  I went with the orange and yellow combination to help me stay positive on a day of gray.  The yellow edges reminded me of our week in the sun and will brighten the week ahead.

  1. My dad brought flowers home every Saturday when he went grocery shopping. I always remember the splash of color. I try to go to Trader Joe's every week to get something in the winter. I have a cutting garden in my small yard - but it gives me a bouquet a week between June and October. Hope you have some sunny skies tomorrow.

  2. Tulips are such an uplifting flower. I'm glad you found them. I think I may need to get some, too.

  3. Rough coming home to gray gray sky and nonstop rain. Glad you went with the orange and yellow. A definite mood booster and day brightener! Pondered the price + purchase plunge = positive forecast (in spite of the weather)!
