Flowers and proud to be a Korean-American

IMG_0669-A

I am on a potted flowers kick, as shown in the above photo.  This is a pot of yellow chrysanthemums that I bought recently from the supermarket.  They probably will last about four weeks, and then, I’ll toss the yellow and buy a different color next month.

I figure that I save money by not buying alcohol, movie tickets, and a fancy wardrobe.  So, why not spend about ten bucks per month on flowers that make me insanely happy?

The reason I don’t bring in flowers from my outdoor garden is that there are bugs in the outdoor flowers.  That’s the last thing I need:  More bugs inside the house.  So, I always buy flowers from the supermarket, because they are always bug-free.

David and I enjoyed watching the awesome opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics.  I personally take great pride in being a Korean-American, born and raised in Hawaii.

    Your flowers are so beautiful and you are right to be a proud Korean American, Gigi. I loved the openi-)ng ceremonies too. :

    Pretty flowers. It’s nice that grocery stores sell flowers now. They are easy to get and not too expensive. I agree about how long they last and how much pleasure they bring. My niece gave me a beautiful poinsettia and it lasted for six weeks. It’s so nice to have something colorful in the house during these drab, gray winter days.

    I always remember what your mother said who was also born and raised in Hawai‘i. I am an American who happens to be of Korean descent!
