Monday Morning Flowers!




It's Monday and it's also the first day of school at our college.

I am grateful to go back to a job I love even though it means I will be very busy for the next eighteen weeks.

No complaints here though.  I do indeed feel like I dine at the Lucky Cafe nearly every day!

Now, here are some Monday Morning Flowers just for you.



Can you smell them through the screen?


Can you feel the flower love?


I realize now I neglected to include some of my summer experiences on my blog.  Though I didn't take any grand trips, I did have lots of good times with good friends.  Here's a picture of some of us at some nearby gardens.




Happy first day of school to all those out there returning!

Have a great week!


The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows.

Nice Pics. Seagulls make me hungry. Do they look tasty to you?

Penguins and Porkypines make me hungry too. Maybe I need to eat more.

Have a great year. The official start date of our school is on Wednesday and since I'm not retired, I consider that the first day of my retirement. I'm a little giggly.
