A Little Rose Bush


While I was shopping today, a sweet little rose jumped
into my cart and wanted to come home with me.
How could I say no?
I even let it sit up front with the bananas. :)

I'm also pretty sure I bought all the groceries in Greene County, 
Ohio.  Three stores...three carts full.
And I filled the gas tank.  Yep, I think I spent enough money
today.  Oh dear. haha.

  1. I know where i'm going for dinner. Will you pretend i'm one of the picky boys? I don't eat bananas. haha.
    Beautiful roses. Will you have to keep it inside until plantable spring arrives?
    At my house the poor thing would die. I'd kill fake house plants.

  2. Love your sweet little roses ... Carl brought a smallish Christmas cactus home for me a few weeks before Christmas .. I am trying desperately to keep it going. I re-potted it yesterday, it's already twice the size it was when he walked home with it, so I may be doing something right?

    1. I have one...it seems to be barely hanging on all the time, although it did bloom for Christmas this year! If you've replanted, you really are doing something right! Mine just looks neutral and not happy. lol....

  6. I did that a few days ago...three stores not three carts. HaHa.. I did my monthly at Costco, and I love a few things from Trader Joe's and then our local grocery for what left. I can't buy produce at Costco, it spoils before the two of us can eat it. However I do get their fruit...we go through that pretty fast, especially if the boys visit. Tonight it was cold, so my dearest requested Shepherd's Pie. It was good.

    1. Your Costco is like our Sams Club. They do have the best produce! I buy my meat there and freeze it. Feeding 5 men is amazingly expensive. ha. I love Trader Joes, too, but it's not close enough for me to go as often as I'd like.

      Shepherd's Pie has got to be the ultimate comfort food! yum. :)

    2. Yes, Costco is like Sams Club. I buy my meat there too, and separate and freeze. I know just how much I can buy because of the size of my freezer. That's why I use canned beef and chicken for casseroles as I have plenty of pantry space.

      I've added some pink to my splashes of red and decorated my front porch already for Valentines. Rather early, but Spring will be here before we know it, and I'll have to pull out all my Easter and yellows...but it's what I love to do.

    3. pink and red sound perfect and cheery! I still have my Christmas things on the front porch! ha. But I did take it all down inside. Just a few vintage postcards that celebrate new years are inside now...changing those little things for each holiday and season is fun, isn't it? I do have a Valentine's wreath for the front door. I think it might need some freshening, though. Might need to get on that soon! ha.

    1. I loved the pink. I think they were well stocked for Valentine's Day. Tomorrow I'll find a pretty pot to put it in and it can cheer up my desk! :)

  8. I see you are having rotisserie chicken for dinner...hahaha...been to Costco!
    The rose is precious...I hope it flourishes...remember the Miracle-Gro...
    Our snow is melting as well...supposed to be in the 50's on Saturday...
    Fabulous!!!

    Cheers!

  9. I used to feed FOUR men, so I understand how much food it takes!

    I hope the cats don't decide they like your rose bush, too. Our cats' favorite flower (to eat) is roses.

  13. Betsy, that shopping trip sounds like some of ours! I just HATE it when it's time to "restock the pantry" and we're out of almost everything. Nice touch on the rose though... a little sprig of happiness to offset the cringe at the checkout register.

  16. I used to teach at the vocational school in Greene County when Wally Gossett was the principal. Anyway, we would go to Xenia quite often for a lunch or something. Haven't been back since I left the school and started working full time at my home business. Gary and Pam Sergeant were my best friends back then. They don't live in Xenia but in another smaller town whose name I have forgotten.
