Don't pass up a "sign"

The question was asked "Would you ever consider living in the best kept secret in Southern Indiana"?  "Oh, I don't know.....

Driving to work...random thoughts. All three of those cars turned right without stopping at the red light..they didn't have an arrow..does one doing it make it right? The Beavers make a dam and the humans have to tear it down...over and over...but what can we do..we can't reason with them to stop the madness. The woman that just passed me in that car had her hair so taut and had such a firm expression on her face it made her look like a middle aged man. The geese are pairing up...will have little goslings around soon and more green poopy. Talked to my friend on the phone right through the scheduled tornado drill at 7:30pm. Was I supposed to practice running to the basement? uh oh The whole moon is reflected in a lake and also in a drop of water. The Universe can be very big or very small...depends on where you are in it. And how big or small you are. We may be seeing all of it and don't know it.

Just took a little evening nap after reading some Zen sayings in a little square book that I have had for years that sits next to my chair in the sunroom. It's amazing how that relaxed me. I miss my naps..I used to always take one a day and I haven't for about a year now..no wonder
my energy feels like it is all whacked out. I also get a much better night's sleep if I take a short nap right before I go down for the night...Well, I have been called an enigma by some who think they ought to know!♥

Irish Squirrel

It's incredibly warm here, has been and will be for the next several days.  All the trees are budding and the magnolia two doors down probably has about 3 good days left, for she has bloomed in extreme force..everything is much earlier now...sprouting wise.  We had a very mild winter and although some portions of our state have had terrible tornados we have had very pleasant weather..I am relishing in it.  KennyRogersLookAlikeBeforeThePlasticSurgeryWentWrong came home early from work and we sat out in the long lingering sunshine eating blue chips and salsa and beer and a couple pieces of pumpkin bread.  And then like clock work here came our darling squirrel to spend the next 3 hours with us.  She actually is a new one...we named her Wynken Pretty Tail...we have had a couple Wynkens in the past..and funnily enough, she acts just like them.  She comes to the door of the sunroom and stands there and looks in, knowing I will come out immediately and give her a peanut.  So there she came at 4pm and we sat and fed her almost a bag of peanuts in the shell.  She is still a little too shy to take it out of our hands yet, but she stands very close and then scurries off to bury them.  She ate a few, but mostly she was putting out her breakfast for the morning.  It was cute..it was very warm and humid today, so she laid on her tummy sprawled out flat to eat her peanuts She stayed with us till dark...very unusual...squirrels usually go in when the sun is starting to set.  

We said to each other that we could have gone to the tavern to drink green beer for St. Patty's Day, but we both agreed we had a much better Irish time feeding our Irish Squirrel. Simple pleasures are the best.
