I woke up Monday morning struggling to balance my wants versus my needs.
What I wanted was to drive into town to buy fresh spring flowers. I was dreaming of tulips, hyacinths, crocus, daffodils. I’d become spoiled whilst in Arizona where flowers are plentiful and affordable (and close by.)
It doesn’t cost a lot to indulge in a small bouquet here at home either.
What I didn’t need was to spend my time and energy. A trip to town translates into almost a whole day used up. I combine it with a few errands and a lot of browsing around.
What I needed was to stay home and be happy with what I had, which was a box full of dried treasures from the summer. Who knew peonies would dry so beautifully …So instead of running into town, I spent a couple blissful hours arranging and appreciating these beauties, which led me to create some word art …
… which led to a new idea for a greeting card …
It also led to a walk with friends. A clean house. And laundry done.
