Today, flowers were required.
It's not that today was bad or anything like that- it's just that it was a damp, chilly day in the middle of July where I didn't feel like doing much of anything.
Flowers can do a lot to shake one out of a sense of general malaise.
At least, that's my belief.
So I bought myself some pink peonies and made dinner for my friend Erin, who kindly gave in to my request to have dinner at my apartment rather than going out. It was a lovely relaxed evening- one that left me full and happy and utterly ready for an early weeknight bedtime.
God, I'm old.
