Monday Morning Flowers!


It's Monday?

Really?

OK. I'll believe it, but I really could use another weekend.


Let's all take a deep breath and begin.





Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.

--William James


Happy Mondays to all!

Good morning, Betty! Happy Monday to you. I was thinking the weekend went by much too quickly too. Thanks for the flowers! They are beautiful. Hope you have a great week! :)

Oh what I'd give to have this past weekend again! I've been working so much around the house and my poor old body is telling me that I need more time to heal... before starting again this Monday morning!

As I type this morning, everyone in the house is asleep as they don't have work/school today. Everyone but me. :( Sigh.

Thanks for the bright flowery start to my day!

Desiree said...

Lovely blossoms on what, in my part of 'Sunny SA' happens to be a bleak, cold and drizzly day :)

Apt quote!

The purple is just beautiful in those flowers! I hope you have a good Monday!

Catherine said...

Sigh... oh those weekends go by so quickly don't they? It seems wrong. Work weeks should be short and weekends long. I think we need to be rich... ;)

Happy Monday Betty ~ thank you for the flowers!

Hi BB,
What beautiful flowers you gave us today. We especially like purple.

Mom's mind is overworked she and Dad have been out 'shopping' for laptops. She said there is just too much stuff to think about.

Thank you for the beautiful flowers and the chuckle. In my blog reader, all of the text showed up except for the last sentence of the quote and the attribution. I'm glad to see it didn't end with, "Act as if what you do makes a difference." That would just be sad.

Don said...

And a glorious Monday (Tuesday, Wednesday, etc.)to you, Ms. Betty
