While trying to decide what to write about in my "new" blog posts, and not being able to come up with much of anything, I had the most scathingly brilliant idea (Yes, Cathy C Hall! )

I'm going to re-post some from the past, at least for now or until I feel as if I can write something decent again. When I look back and read some posts from my early blogging years, 2009-2013, I feel as if I'm reading someone else's writing. I truly mean it! I think to myself, Wow, that is some beautiful writing, and then I remember that I'm the one who wrote it! 

Oh, and you know what else was wonderful to read? All the comments, and some from people who aren't blogging anymore, which made me sad. Their blog either is totally gone, or they haven't posted in years. It makes me want to go back through emails and see if I have one for many of them, and see if we can catch up with each other that way. 

And, maybe I'll have contests again where I give away a book, or bookmark, or fancy pens, etc.

Thanks to all who stop by to make sure I'm still alive and bouncing off the walls! 😄


And I'll end with a couple of favorites from Maxine:

"Ever feel like you've had too much coffee? Me neither." 

"Fashion magazines are society's way of saying 'If you don't feel inadequate already, read one of these!'

 Not much to say...just checking in. All is well in the Povich household, and I hope the same goes for all of you!

I do, though, have photos of beautiful flowers I purchased recently at a local grocery store, and at such inexpensive prices! 

These roses are really pink but they look kind of peach in some of the pictures. 

There were 1 dozen, long stemmed pink roses in a plastic container for only FIVE DOLLARS!

I asked the cashier why these were so cheap, and
she said because they were getting old and about to wilt...

But, here are some of them as of yesterday. 

       And I originally bought them on July 29! 

     I'd say I got a great deal, wouldn't you?

       I added a few lilies of some kind in this vase.

Since I had so many beautiful flowers,

I kept some at home and took some to work. 

        I think it's time for another stop at the grocery store! 🌹
