It’s been raining here for what seems like weeks.  I am sure it is only days, but man, I am sick of the rain.  So it’s only natural that when I saw these I had to buy them.


Yes, peonies.  In December.  Not in season here, so probably from someplace on the other side of the world.  I did think of that before I bought.  I hesitated.  But then I scooped up two bunches and brought them home.


I’m not feeling very festive these days.  And it bothers me.  It bothers me a lot.  I am not sure how I can change it either.  I really want to feel all Christmas-y and excited.  I do.  I think the rain and the gray skies are a big part of it.


So basically, I treated myself.  I spent $34 dollars on 10 peonies so that I would smile every time I saw them.  I’m tricking myself and it’s working little by little.

Snow would help, too.  Come on, Jack Frost.  Bring it on.
