Rocking and Rolling
I have risen, like Lazarus, from my bed. 10 hours of sleep v.s. 22 hours of work.
Friday I started work at 8am, we staggered out into a beautiful night at 10pm. Right before I left work I grabbed a quick computer moment. Read a few new comments on my last post, felt reconnected to a bigger world than the flowers shop. Thank you.
Saturday was a blur. Phones, flowers,pollen everywhere,people coughing and talking and laughing. Pizzas and salad for lunch, I switched my afternoon coffee size to a Venti. A Venti is a lotta coffee.
We were home by 7:00pm. Today is a day of rest for us. You can take your Mother or wife to brunch or lunch. Your florists will be resting.
Happy Mother's Day to all of you. Happy napping, reading, gardening and eating to the hard working florists out there.
And apologies to my workmates for snapping a few blurry pictures of them hard at work. We had 6 designers, 3 delivery men, and 4 women working the front of the store. For those 4 who took care of the husbands, the children, the phones and the screaming ( was that me?) a huge round of applause and a big thank you from the design table.
