Necessary Luxuries

Necessary luxuries:  Flowers, candles and sunsets

I packed the candle, bought the flower within an hour of getting the keys to the apartment, and welcomed the sunset with open arms off my bedroom balcony!  Necessary luxuries that help me to relax and settle in as I wait for the DH and our stuff.

I'm camping in the new apartment now, and it's like an adventure (except with running water!) The DH is finishing the packing up and the stuff arrives later. 

The transition back into cubicle land has some advantages that I am recalling, like battery recycling and free drinks.

Happy Memorial Day!

What a beautiful sunset to welcome you to your new home. May each sunset remind you that you are in God's loving care.

Happy Memorial Day! Your flowers are very pretty.
