Well hello, Monday. After spending five days in the country in seven degree weather (yes, seven degrees!) and eating way too much turkey, I can’t even begin to think about food. It doesn’t help that for some reason I thought it would be a good idea to have a grilled cheese for lunch today- I will be paying for that at pilates later this week. Before I left, I planted the two packs of paperwhite bulbs my mother had sent over in her care package. I swear, sometimes I think she forgets that I live in a studio apartment. Almost every vase I own is now home to at least two bulbs. That being said, there isn’t much room left for additional flowers this Monday, but if you loved planting paperwhites as much as I did last year, I would try amaryllis this season to add that pop of holiday red to your holiday decor. My friends mother had three buds in a simple pot and they were the perfect addition to the living room coffee table. I think I might try to pick some up before the weeks end and see if I can get them to bloom before the holiday. Off to watch a little football and put up some holiday decorations!
