Better late than never

I know it's a day late but HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Linda and Lori for yesterday!!!
Here's a belated birthday present: twin roses from my garden, as if they were just waiting for your birthday.

I couldn't decide which photo I liked best so I figured what the heck, I'll put both up, one for each twin ;-)

I have the day off work today - no reason, just felt I needed a day off for me. No housework, no chores, just me. I think everyone should get a day off every so often just to rest. Call it a 'Mental Health Day'. I'm enjoying mine so far. I phoned an old friend in South Africa earlier and we chatted for almost 2 hours. I took some photos of my (sorry, Hubby's) roses. This afternoon I intend to sit down for a few hours of serious writing. I have the radio on, soon to be replaced by a CD (I bought Pink Floyd's "The Wall" last weekend at long last - now there's some music to get the creative juices flowing!) and There Will Be No Television Until I Say So!

Happy Friday everyone, have a great weekend!

What gorgeous roses - the color is just amazing! Every working Mom deserves the kind of blissful day you described - I hope you enjoyed it! Can't really go wrong with Pink Floyd in the background.

Angel - The garden is very young still so the roses are definitely the highlight. It'll be interesting to see it next Spring though 'cos we planted some bulbs a couple of weeks ago, and more roses. You'll just have to stay tuned and look out for pics on my blog any time from April onwards.

Dawn - I only wish you could smell the scent of those roses too!
