April 30 - Rain, Taxes and a Monday too!

April 30, 2012

Sorry I've been a bit off the radar recently - I needed a little blogging break. For those of you who blog have you ever just wanted to take a little break? I normally try to keep to a one-post a week schedule, but I do sometimes feel tremendous pressure to come up with something even a little interesting once a week - I have no idea how those who blog several times a week, or even daily do it.

Anyways, today is a 3 times yucky day. It's a Monday, which is my least favourite day of the week (I'm guessing its very few peoples favourite). It's raining, which while I know is needed to make all those spring flowers bloom, is still depressing, and lastly it tax day for us Canadians. See what I mean - 3 times yuck!

Handily today is also the last day of the April (How did that happen - how are we entering the 5th month of 2012 already?) which means it was my last day to buy myself some pretty flowers for the month. Flowers always cheer me up. So does chocolate. The last part is just an FYI in case you ever need to buy me a gift - I'll be thrilled with either ;)

This month's flowers are Mums in two colours - I'm not sure what it is about the lime green, but I love it paired with the pink.

In the next couple of days I hope to show you a store I got to explore during a recent trip to the Big Apple.

  1. I know what you mean about 3x yucky - was feeling the same about today. And for the same reasons! But those flowers would have cheered me up....one of my favourite colour combinations! I just love pink and green together :)
    I took a rather extended blogging break too. Partly on purpose,partly not. But i think every now and then i just need to unplug from the internet.

  2. The flowers are beautiful. The pics of them made me smile! I've been feeling the blog blahs too. I've been posting about once a week... mostly. Usually, it's four or five days a week. I think sometimes we just need to disconnect and recharge by going out and engaging with the world. :-) It's all good, right? Hope you have a big return!
