Flowers












The Sunday before Troy had to go out of town, I got to spend an hour at the conservatory taking pictures and just playing around with my camera. It was wonderful.

There seasonal display room was still set up with Easter Lillies and I l.o.v.e the smell of lillies. I just sat on the floor and inhaled for a good 10 minutes!!

It is funny how smells, at least for me, can change my attitude. It's hard to explain, but certain smells (lillies, baking bread, rain, campfire smoke, fall) just fill me.

That's how it was with the lillies at the conservatory. God's whisper in the midst of chaos to stop and by thankful for all He has blessed me with.

Troy is home now, got back late last night, and I am so happy to have him home. It was a long 8 days for us. The kids and I had fun, lots of adventures and lots of meltdowns and tantrums, but overall it was good.

A few friends pitched in to help, I even got out of putting the kids to bed Monday night because a friend took pity on me and told me she was coming over so I could get out for a bit. I was so incredibly thankful for that!

Back into *real* routine now and that's not a bad thing!

Glad you made it! The pictures are gorgeous. I love the red one, two before the pussywillows. I know that plant...my Dad has one. Can't remember the name of it though.

Can you believe we got another snow storm? That's 3 since the "summer" easter weekend. I never know whether we can play outside in short sleeves, or whether I need snowsuits! :)
