A little pick-me-up

Yesterday was not my favorite. I had to go to the dentist (one of my least favorite activities) to fix a crown that had fallen out the day before. A simple cement job that should last 15-20 minutes. An hour and a half later, I had a temporary crown and a completely numb mouth. I’ll spare you the gory details. But it threw off my day completely. I’ve got so much going on now, I don’t welcome losing large chunks of my day.

So to cheer myself up, I stopped and bought these beautiful purple tulips:

Boda vase

I bought this vase years ago. It’s a little small, but I like it.

I deliberately overexposed this for a different, softer look.

    What a great pick me up! These tulips are gorgeous. I love the close up shot.
    Hope your teeth are feeling better. 😦

    Purple tulips are my favourites. I absolutely love tha last shot. Going to the dentist is bad enough but having to stay there three times longer than planned is really unfair.

    • The last one is my favorite too.

      I should probably count my blessings. If the crown hadn’t fallen off, I wouldn’t have known that decay was starting and would have faced a root canal as well. I think I’d rather do anything than go to the dentist.

    Oooh I hate the dentist, sorry to hear about you having to go!

    The purple tulips are absolutely lovely though. I can’t remember seeing such a beautiful colour.

    Oucheewowoa … so sorry to hear about the crown, Carole. Hope the permanent one goes smoother. AND, I don’t think I have ever seen purple tulips … exquisite!!

    • I’m sure it’ll be fine. We do have a wonderful dentist. I just hate going there.

      Are purple tulips that rare? Never really thought about it before….

        More whining here, Carole It’s snowing at home today. Pal sent beautiful shot of 30 foot fir tree in her front yard bending from the weight of the white stuff. 20 more cm’s predicted overnight … I don’t wanna go home on Sunday!

      • OK, you’re entitled, Cheryl. Maybe it’ll melt before you get home?

        Enjoy that last weekend….

    Amazing! I don’t think I’ve ever seen tulips that shade of purple.

    It’s snowing here tonight. Boo.

    Take care of your “teef”!

    Aaaw. I hope you’re already on the mend.

    I love tulips and can’t wait til mine come up. Those ones are so pretty, no wonder you bought them. I like the quote too.

    I have noticed that the lighting in your home is quite fantastic! It is almost like your whole house is a studio 🙂 I hope you are feeling better!

    • Well, the dining room and study are my “studios.” 🙂 The room that I shoulduse (empty bedroom) has a lot less light and space. Kind of a pain to put everything away each day, but I’m used to it now.
      I’m fine, thanks!
