Lazy Days and Portents

The morning started with our little herd of deer stopping by to see if we had any Indian corn for them. The snow has been on and off as has the sun. The sky has been particularly beautiful in it's moodiness today. I took a nice walk in the woods but felt a bit intrusive with the birds making warning calls. I don't blame them for wanting this snow covered space all to themselves.

Back inside, I caught a glimpse of a squirrel trying to carry a whole ear of corn away by himself. It made emptying the dishwasher more amusing. All in all it's a very lazy day. I should be trying to get more done but despite the lack of tangible accomplishments there is an auspicious air to the day. The cactus has been in bloom again. I've had it for years and had no idea it could flower. The first time it sent off flowers was when I was pregnant with my daughter. So I have this sneaking feeling that the small yellow flowers are a sign something good is on the horizon. Do you believe in portents?

Absolutely. And that sounds like a perfect day (great pix, too.)
