So I’m off to see the doctor today to determine if I’m healing properly from my procedure back in December. Recovery was a little rougher than I expected, so I’m not keen on getting prodded again, even if it is for observation purposes. Gah.
I’m consoling myself by buying fresh flowers from a local florist afterward.
I love, love, love flowers. Wild ones, supermarket ones, fancy-pants ones, I don’t care. I love them all. But indulging in them can get expensive (unless we’re talking about Aldi’s $4/6 rose bouquets and then THAT is totally doable!). But a handful of interesting flowers really livens up the place. I usually separate my bouquets into only a couple of stems per room so I can make the flowers go further. It always brightens me up to see them when I walk through the house. When I have fresh flowers in the house, I feel “rich” in so many ways.
In order to afford them, however, I turn again to the little $30 coupon book I bought to help out a nonprofit that spays and neuters cats. The book has deep discounts on local restaurants and businesses, many of which are some of my favorite places! There is a nice florist in the book that offers 50% off a cut flower bouquet (only up to a $10 value). So I’m going to pop in after the dreaded doctor’s appointment and see what sort of cut arrangement I can pick up for about $20. Since I have a bit of change to spare, I may look into what tasty lunch offerings are in the area at a deep discount as well!
