I knew the day would be a good one even before it began. I'd just come back inside the house after feeding the chickens and prepared myself a bowl of Nature's Harvest cereal.
Pouring the honey and milk onto my bowl, I started to sit down to eat. Just then, something caught my eye. Up near the northern rim of my bowl was a sliver of almond in the shape of a heart. Is that a sign or what?
Not everyone looks for clues in their cereal bowl to get a feel for the day's forecast. Partly cloudy with a dash of drama? Add a little angst and handwringing on the side and you have a something to grind your teeth about.
Seeing that almond heart at breakfast told me today would be blue skies, friendly smiles, and a get out of the doldrums free card.
