Stupid Arctic Polar Vortex!

It was even cold, cold in Florida today.

Still, after the nice hot soup for supper last night, I had fresh Plant City strawberries for breakfast this morning.

That's yogurt, by the way--not whipped cream.

I got a big surprise when I returned from yoga class this afternoon--a big bouquet from my daughter and two grandchildren waiting on the doorstep.


Aren't they gorgeous.

They made me happy.

I put one stem at the kitchen window.

  3. I bet it was their warm hearts that kept the flowers from freezing on your porch this afternoon!

  13. Those orchids are just spectacular! What a nice thing to come home to! The Arctic vortex has impacted us, too. I shouldn't complain about only 63 today but yet I do.

  14. Your inside sure looks cozy with those vivid orchids! I talked with my s-i-l from Sarasota yesterday - she was complaining about the cold. Hope the citrus crop wasn't affected.
