Flower of the day: February 5, 2021. Budding Daisies

Daisies always make me happy, like I’m running in a field of greens and colorful daisies all around! I’ve never done that, but it sounds delightful. These daisies were low to the ground and young: looked like they just opened their eyes to the sun. They beam with charm.

Thanks for visiting my blog and have a wonderful start to the weekend. Happy February!

Also, thank you Cee for hosting this FOTD challenge. I’ve wanted to post flowers earlier this week, but it’s been a hectic week of this and that (nothing in particular but lots of cooking, cleaning, and all that housekeeping and raising kids stuff). Stay well and happy Friday. πŸ™‚

    • The trio were peeking out from the grass…not full grown. Spring is only a few weeks away. Maybe it’s the Covid mindset, but time is passing so quickly. I remember hearing from older people that time goes fast. They were right; sometimes too fast.

      • Yes, my mom would say when I could hardly wait for something and time went too slow that one day time would go by fast and I would be powerless to slow it down. Back then I could understand it like I do now.

      • Shaking my head in agreement! Now I do and fully well understand what my mom kept telling me about time. I thought she was making stuff up. This reminds me of a wonderful poem I recently read about turning 21 and not listening to your elders. I’ll try to get more information about it. I found it in a child’s anthology of poems book for the kids.

      • Yes, our mothers were smart and had been around awhile so their wisdom was important for us to grasp. Thank goodness we are smart enough to realize what they said usually came to fruition.

      • Moms are wonderful that way although I used to ignore her words thinking she was a fun destroyer and old fashioned. sigh…in hindsight, I see what she meant. These days I surprise myself by sounding like her. lol.
        I would’ve saved myself a lot of trouble if I listened to her in my youth! But thank goodness I listened to her when her friend suggested Chris as a potential good husband.

      • Thank goodness for that insight in choosing Chris as a potential husband … kudos to mom and her friend! Yes, I find myself remembering advice and “Momisms” more and more the older I get.

      • I did after I pressed “send” – tomorrow is my blogiversary and I have not changed my profile picture and only have added a few widgets and that’s it in eight years. I know one day they will discontinue my 2010 theme and I’ll be forced to change … not looking forward to that day.

      • Happy belated blogiversary!!! So glad that you stuck it out from the beginning and now you have a large audience and wonderful voice in the blogging arena. It would’ve been discouraging to have the slow start like you did, but what a tale of resilience and doing something special for your homebound friend.

      • Thanks Esther – I am glad my homebound friend did encourage me to write as I am not sure I would have began a blog on my own. And I know for sure I would not have started a blog while I was still working. Thank you for your nice comments Esther … I have to say I had no idea how much time would be encompassed by having a blog – it was easier in the beginning, but admittedly not as much fun.

      • Same here…if I didn’t have my old roommate friend holding my hand through it I would probably still be wondering about a blog. It happened at a propitious time for me; we were stuck at home waiting for Ellis to get scheduled for her 3rd heart surgery. I wanted to chronicle all that happened and share our experiences.
        But no one told me how time consuming blogging is; how painful it was setting up the blog on WP!!
        Glad you persisted through the years!!

      • If my neighbor was alive, she likely would not believe me if I told her how much time I really devote to the blog and being behind is not nice at all … I feel torn about keeping up, but it is getting difficult to do so, so I’ve resigned myself I have to do what I can. It took me an entire weekend to write my initial blog post, set up the blog … that was difficult indeed. Now you have a record of your feelings and emotions at the time. I’m glad I persisted too as well as you.
