I haven't posted in awhile because I am still mentally recovering from last week, which happened to be the worst weeek we've had in a long time. To make a long story short, our house caught on fire during a simple plumbing procedure (we are remodeling our bathroom. Be extra careful when "sweating" pipes in a very old house). Soon after the fire trucks had left the scene, we received the most horrible news about our friend's father. And it continued to go downhill from there.
But it is a new week. Our house is intact. And I'm hoping that the healing process has begun for my friends, and their family.
I bought myself some spring bulbs and made a little arrangement to cheer myself up. As the hyacinths scent the air, I am reminded that spring is just around the corner. A time of hope, and rebirth.
