Colorful Beacons

Work has been busy.
Days have been blah.
And nothing much has been happening except the daily grind.
I'm kinda missing the lush tropical environment of Sri Lanka.
And all the beautiful, colorful flowers.
Flowers are those little colorful beacons of the sun from which we get sunshine when dark, somber skies blanket our thoughts.
Dodinsky

One more day and then our weekend begins.
I can't wait!

Hope all is well where you are!

Same here. Daily grind, same ol same ol, just kinda blah! We are supposed to have nice weather this weekend, so I'm looking forward to that. Love those flowers - wish we had some color going on here!

Dear Tammy
It's always hard getting back into work etc after having a wonderful holiday as you did in Sri Lanka.
Everything seems humdrum - that's how it is for me when I return from France each time too...
i love your "new look" blog Tammy - your large photos are just stunning!
Take care
Smiles and hugs
Shane ♥

Love the bird and flower pictures, so cool, I don't think I got where you are now, but it looks like you have been in so many cool places, so fun to travel and take all those pic of far away places...

Flowers are a balm to the soul. I think we all need a vacation --somewhere-- :-)

We are looking forward to a trip later this year to Hawaii ... It really is helping us get through these grey days!

Hello Tammy.

Yes, getting back to work after a holiday is always a challenge. I loved the beautiful lush tropical flowers and birds of Sri Lanka too.

The weekend is just about near. I have been busy crocheting and thinking of things By The Sea... Hugs Judy

Susan said...

Hi Tammy...Oooooo, are all those photos of flowers from Sri Lanka? Very pretty.

Kind of nose to grindstone here, too, but I find great joy in doing my blog and in going on Pinterest. So much fun!Susan

I'm glad you glad to enjoy the lushness of Sri Lanka but I'm sure the dryness looks even more so now. Still snow on the ground here. Diane

It is hard to come back from a beautiful vacation - I just spent 5 days in Colorado and I miss the mountains horribly. But thank God for weekends ... and mountains, and flowers ... and cameras to keep a record of beauty!

Hope you have a great weekend and settle comfortably back into your routine.

TACIStudio said...

Wow... Gorgeous, wonderful pictures of the flower... And to think that they are real... Amazing.
I always feel a little "blue" and it's hard to adjust again when I come back from visiting my family in Brazil...but a few more days and life starts to feel "normal" again.
Hope the flower brighten your day :)

Hindustanka said...

Hi, Tammy! I guess it's always difficult to get back to routine after lovely vacations..everything seems not that bright and colorful. but then we get used to again :) Those flowers are lovely...
Have a nice day and yea! weekend is not far away :)

Sheila R - Blessed and Distressed said...

Gorgeous pictures of your trip and flowers. It has been busy here too with work and the kiddos schedules. Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Linda said...

Hi Tammy,
You know I know all about the blahs.... :)

Hopefully you'll enjoy a lovely weekend.

I've had the blahs again myself because of our new huge blanket of snow. It's very UN-springlike here, but I keep telling myself that this is Illinois afterall, and the weather can be 30 degrees one day and 65 the next.... so, hopefully something encouraging will happen soon.

Take care,
Linda

Thanks for your kind comment on my mother. I do miss her but it's getting easier.

I too read all the Nancy Drews and Hardy Boys (per Lori's blog)

Your Sri Lanka pictures are lovely and it looks like a great time. I can see why you miss it a bit now. Our son's kindergarten teaching in Africa was from Sri Lanka.
