Monday Morning Flowers

Happy Monday, Everyone!

It's back to our regularly scheduled lives.

Are you ready?





What is the meaning of life? To be happy and useful.

--Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama

Happy Monday! Thank you for the beautiful flowers. Yes, I think I'm ready for the season. I say that now...ask me again in a couple of weeks. I'll probably be scrambling! ☺

Monday....YUCK.

Hey! You made it!! You survived Thanksgiving!!! Hooray!!! :)

Talli Roland said...

Lovely flowers, Betty! Good to see you on the other side of the holidays.

siga said...

Hmm... Most of the time if I am happy, I am not useful (lazy daydreaming). And being useful not always makes me happy (with all things to do!). But can I argue with Dalai Lama?! :))

P.S. Love those flowers, they are useful for happiness !

Elizabeth Grimes said...

I love the flowers...you are a genius with the camera, my friend. And I love the quote. It's so true.

Here's another of my favorite quotes:

"The greatest thing in the world is to know how to belong to oneself."
(Montaigne)

Brian (not the cat) said...

A happy and useful Monday to you, too.

Beautiful blooms by Bossy Betty - ahhh, I love alliteration in the morning and I love these flowers and your generous good wishes! Happy Monday to you too.

Ms. A said...

Uh oh, that means I have no meaning to my life... and you gave me flowers anyway. Thank you!

Happy Monday, Betty! Thanks for the beautiful flowers and the Dalai Lama's perfect words.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

The Dalai Lama has it right. I'm going to put my son who is off work today to the purpose of being useful in bringing in the trash cans from the curb. For his own good, of course.

Loretta said...

Happy Monday Betty...thanks for the flower power! Hugs

The Empress said...

Stopped by to check on my friend....hoping Thanksgiving had moments of peace and love in it for you.

Beautiful- and I hope you don't mind if I steal that quote!

Whoever asks the meaning of life needs a hobby. A useful, happy-making one would be fine.
