Here are a few pictures from the farmhouse recently.
The cut flowers in the vase were picked out and given to me by two of my grandsons for my birthday. They were so sweet to do that, with the help of their Mama, of course. It made me want to always have some fresh flowers in the house and now that Spring and Summer are on the way, I hope to do this. The long stem red rose was given to me at the restaurant where my hubby and I ate Valentine's Dinner. All of these flowers have lasted a long time.
This plant was given to me by my hubby for Valentine's Day. He knows I love cut flowers, but that I also really love plants that I can keep. I love it because it is so colorful. Its from the Bromeliad family and from what I read about it, will be easy to take care of.
In the sewing room, I have been working on a Double Irish Chain quilt. These blocks are aqual blue, but It will end up being made from all kinds of rainbow colors.
I really love Diet Coke, but I've got to start drinking more water. So I am going to try to give them up. I rarely drink plain water and some times at the end of the day I realize that all I've drank all day was coffee and Diet Cokes. I know this is not good for me. I used to drink lots of sweet tea and couldn't imagine ever giving it up, but I did since I knew how bad the sugar was for me. I also gave up sweet liquid coffee creamers, which I thought I'd never be able to do. So, I'm hoping that one day in the future, I'll look back and say that I gave up Diet Cokes, even though I thought I'd never be able to.
I hope your Monday is fantastic!
