Last night I went to the grocery store to buy cream cheese. Well, ok, Trevor needed some cream cheese for a dessert he was making for work the next day, and I said, I’ll go, but give me the grocery list on the fridge and I’ll pick up those things, too, while I’m there. It was a short list–turmeric, onions, crushed tomatoes, and then, cream cheese.
Eighty-five dollars, three bags of groceries, and two bouquets of flowers later, I was back home.
I think next time Trevor will insist on going to get the cream cheese himself.
But I ask you–how could I resist the flowers? I got a bunch of five of those gorgeous, cobalt blue irises that are common in flower arrangements this time of year–they are so stunning I can hardly stand it. And for five long, beautiful stems, not yet blooming, it was only $5.99.
And then, of course, I saw the daffodils–I hadn’t seen those yet this spring, and they are so beautiful, and so inexpensive. . . but of course, I needed two bunches to make a decent-sized bouquet, so that’s what I grabbed. I kept the irises at home and I brought the daffodils to work.
I feel like flowers are more a necessity than a luxury, and for just about 12 bucks I’ve got two gorgeous bouquets of color.
I think that’s more than worth it.
