At Aldi last week, I could NOT pass up this manager's special!  Six roses, $2.49.
Could you pass it by?

I've never had white roses before, and they called to me.
So they came home, and were plopped into a vase.

 The more I look, the more beauty I see.
The subtle tint of the centers.


And now for Fawn's weekly party..........

17.  He knows Scripture so well.
18.  He is a gifted Bible teacher.  Love picking his brain.
19.  I said before that he is romantic.....let me elaborate.  He buys romantic cards, he'd get me flowers if I'd let him, he always celebrates Valentine's Day, our anniversary, my birthday without fail, he will dance with me after dinner, he is excited to get home at night.
20.  He really cares and gets very concerned if I am ill.
21.  He is protective of me.
22.  He cleans up after dinner every night.  I am careful to clean as I go, so it lightens our load.

Hope you are staying warm this week!

What I deal! I couldn't have passed that up, either. I love the vase it's in. Is it a McCoy?

So pretty.

If anyone would leave behind roses for a mere 2.49... I don't know. That's a lot of beauty for so little. And really, look at all those colors in the center. Just lovely.

I sure hope that your hubby gets to read all these wonderful things about himself. Mine often cleans up after supper, though I notice he isn't tonight, which means I'd better get going.

The roses are truly a great bargain .. flowers in the winter are such a treat! Hubby sounds like a wonderful man .. you are blessed.

As you know, you got those roses for a great price. Half a dozen are usually around $12 where I live, so it's a splurge when I give in and get some.

I like all colors of roses, but especially the pale pink and the white ones like you have. The white makes you study the design more, which adds to their beauty as you see how God put each petal of these flowers together. He really knew what he was doing to create beauty.

Thanks for dropping by my blog this week!

Those are some of the most beautiful white roses I've ever seen! So often, they're a little discolored or a bit brown on the tips but these are absolutely perfect. Actually, you said it best...they are exquisite. Thanks for linking up, Carol! :)

You've got a good man, Carol! You are a blessed woman. Your chicken and cauliflower looked so good. Regarding the oven, if there is lots of grease, wipe it out with a wet rag before engaging the self-cleaning cycle. I have done this too, and the element actually flamed up from the grease! Not a good thing! Hope you are having a good week.
Blessings and hugs, Beth
