This is Jean, the owner of our floral shop in town. She is a wonderful person. Always so kind. Her husband passed away two years ago. She stayed in business. Then she had some foot surgery and it's becoming too much for her to be on her feet all day. The yellow sign says, Barney and Jean are retiring after 43 years of business. Barney is her dog. :):)
I had to go see Jean in person and give her a thank you note, for all the years of kindness. There were many times when I wasn't sure just what to order for funerals, that she has given me the right idea. At times, you may want to give more than flowers. We both had cried before this photo.
Here Barney , such a good dog. Some times you never knew he was there in the shop.
I bought this print of an old farm house, while I was there.
I put the print here on the shelf in the dining room , along with pictures of buildings in our town. I will think of Jean, Lee (her late husband) , and good old Barney, and how nice they were to our town. I will miss them, such good people.
Yesterday was a sunny day and kind of quiet for us. Ted repaired some things that had broken, shop vacuum, and his BIL's electric knife that they take fishing. Then he mowed and weed whacked. I painted some porch things. Fixed our lunch . Then I did laundry. All our chores are caught up here. :) Well except for that daily cooking and cleaning thing.
The sun is out today. Hope everyone has a good day back to work. I remember going back to work after a nice long weekend, that was always tough. I wish you all well. XO
