Monday Morning Flowers


Happy Monday Morning, Everyone.

Sorry I have not been around lately.

It's been a little crazy here.

I hope to get back into my writing groove very soon.

Flowers and treats ahead for you!





Someone's idea of a joke at the Department Christmas Party:


Christmas is a time when everybody wants his past forgotten and his present remembered. What I don't like about office Christmas parties is looking for a job the next day.

Betty, Love the Phyllis Diller quote. I forget what a funny lady she could be. I also find your header photo of the dish and Rudolph a rather interesting juxtaposition.

You better be taking care of yourself!

Thank you for the gorgeous flowers, Miss Betty! I really want to work with the people in your office...my kinda humor. ☺ Happy Monday!

Daisy said...

Haha! That orange looks lonely and much too healthy for its own good. :D Happy Monday, Betty! Have a good week!

Leah J. Utas said...

What interesting cupcakes.

Love the Diller quote.

Gigi said...

Good morning Betty! And a fine Monday it is....mainly because I'm at home and getting to receive your flowers early instead of later in the day!

Eva Gallant said...

I want a cupcake!

Brian said...

Thanks for the Monday goodies!

Hilary said...

Always a treat for the eyes, here. Luckily your coworker didn't have a lump of clay at hand.

Linda said...

The orange and the quote gave me a smile this morning. Hope you have a great week leading up to Christmas.

Flartus said...

You're allowed to have an actual "Christmas" party?? Wow, how daringly retro!

jenny_o said...

I think whoever brought in those cupcakes ate one on the way to work and then filled in the hole with his/her lunch fruit :)

Beautiful blooms - thank you. It's a snowy day here, and those are a welcome sight!

Baby Sister said...

Those roses are beautiful!! One of these days I would like to experience a "real" Christmas work party, just to see what it's like. :)

Nat said...

Haha! Took me a while to spot the joke... too busy checking out cupcakes :-)

Ann said...

Happy Monday Betty. I'll see if I can get Santa to send you an elf so you can get some help and a little down time :)

Elizabeth Grimes said...

Lol. Office Christmas parties are always entertaining. :) Have a great week!

Theresa Milstein said...

Flowers and treats to you too. Happy rest of December and Happy New Year!

Magic Ear Kids said...

I'd be glad to have that clementine. I feel like I'm turning into icing this time of year!

You're so good to us, even to the point of making sure we get our vitamin C.

Hang tough through the holiday season.

Ms. A said...

I almost didn't make it on Monday, for Monday morning flowers. Thank you, they are lovely.

Sush said...

Now see, I'd go right for that orange...!!!
Hope the wild turns into wonderful very soon!
Many hugs~

Perhaps it is the absurb in Phyliss I saw in my own character and always enjoyed. I missed my start today with you.

bill lisleman said...

good quote - office parties like most things have changed and just dropped at many places. I miss the good ones.

CiCi said...

Thank goodness I am no longer working, so I don't have office parties to attend. I think the fruit in the cupcake tray is a good idea. Good that you are keeping busy and I look forward to hearing about all the goings on when you have time.

Shan said...

Hugs, BB. May this Christmas and New Year be merry, and if not, let it be quick.

Leanne said...

Thinking of you, Betty. Happy Wednesday (I'm a little late.) Hugs.

Great pix, as always. And who else posts poetry and quotes from Phyllis Diller but the Boss Woman?! I hope you are well, keep writing (more, more, more!)

xo, LG :)

Office Christmas parties are one of the reasons why I'm happy to be retired ;-)

Have a great Christmas Betty. xo jj
