OK. I know it's not winter yet. However, it is no longer 'flower season'.
I stopped by the grocery store on the way home to pick up a few last minute things for my Thanksgiving. One of the things that I snagged was a bouquet of flowers for my table.
For years I didn't bring flowers into the house, and I discouraged my X from bringing me any. Any time we had flowers in the house, the cats would knock over the vase and attempt to eat the things.
Fortunately, the cats do not seem to be that interested in flowers any more.
I am grateful that I can have flowers, off season, on my table to cheer me.
