The answer is flowers

There is one month until the return of the light.  On December
21 the light starts to come back! I mean. So as we head into the
darkest month of the year in our part of the world, I have one
answer.  Get yourself some flowers. Our favourite flower
shop Yang's Flower Market on Avenue Road sells beautiful flowers. 
And some smaller vegetable and fruit stores do too. 

Right now we have magnificent Amaryllis plants coming into
bloom, an almost finished glorious bouquet of huge yellow
roses, plus a glass jar with beautiful tulips on our kitchen table.
And some white and yellow daisies from a birthday bouquet.
Those pretty blooms say."don't worry spring is coming!" And
they make us happy.

Have a loving your life day.
