It's hard to get back to the swing of work when you have had a five day weekend. I think the weekends are completely backwards, don't you? EVERY weekend should be five days.
We had a guest for part of the time and I put a little arrangement of carnations in her room to welcome her. I love the combination of pinks and coral with the (faux) Jadite vase (actually it's a cachepot that I got a few years ago at Trader Joe's of all places).
I like doing little touches like this when people come to visit. Since we live a ways away from most of our family and friends I like to make their stay with us special so they want to come back.
You might have to share the guest room if you do visit, however.
I'm trying to get back into the mindset that I can do a quick, short blog post. Not every single one has to be a photographic or literary masterpiece. So today you get a cheery vase of flowers.
