I was told by a gal in Fuzion last week, about a book called "The Artist's Way" that she highly recommended that I read. I loved how insightful she was (considering we dont' know each other) that I needed a little creative "pick-me-up". I guess it's one of those self discovery type books and it's been around for quite a while. Well, I looked into it and I'll probably end up buying it. I really want to finish some books I've been working on and maybe get back into my painting again. There was a website for the book and I checked out the forum section. There was one article in particular that caught my eye and it was, "Beginning a New Relationship...with me!" The girl talked about how she was going to start treating herself better and even start buying herself little presents from time to time. The one thing she said she started doing right away was buying herself some flowers. She'd pick out ones that would cheer up a room. She even said she was getting ready to start mailing herself some cards from Hallmark. I thought this was such a great idea!
So, today I went grocery shopping and one thing on my list: Flowers for me! I love them. They're simple and sweet and add a little bit of sunshine to our home when it's been nothing but grey for months. I picked out some purple daisies and pink/white daisies as well as some babies breath. I picked out one of my crystal vases I received for our wedding and decorated it with my flowers. I set it up nice and neatly on our kitchen table. It wasn't before long that the itching begun...
What. The. Hell.
I never get to have things like this and the one time I know I SHOULD have them, I find I'm allergic. So, I took a benadryl and will do my best not to touch my eyes after touching the flowers. Wonderful and kind gesture to myself gone array.
