The Cow in the Living Room


"I want to get you some flowers to go with your cow in the living room", she said as we walked into Trader Joe's.

"I have a cow in the living room?", I asked, puzzled.

"Yes", she replied, "The one in your window".

Aaaah, mystery solved. 
 So after cracking the whip and making Orlando Grandma climb the hilly trails of Griffith Park yesterday, she still wanted to get me these pretty sunflowers when we stopped on our way home.

So pretty. Such a bright spot in the room. And, yes, they go perfectly with my cow in the living room.

Thank you Orlando Grandma!

Special Note to readers:  Orlando Gma is quite the walker and I was so impressed that she just wanted to "keep going!" everytime we asked if we'd gone far enough. I think she's thinking of taking up rock climbing next...

The yellow flowers do look good in the livingroom and the picture of the cow laying amid the yellow flowers came up to life.

I love your mother-in-law! She sounds fun, but maybe way too active for me, lol!

I knew no good would come of this move to LA! A cow in the living room!

Love the sunflowers. So did she remember the painting from your blog or had she noticed it once she arrived? CG

Leslie said...

Cute. I noticed the painting before I even looked at the sunflowers. : ) Glad that you now have the gorgeous flowers to match.
