Friendy forecast

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.

I hope your day was a good one too.


  1. If you find one shaped like Richard Nixon, put it on Ebay.

  2. A heart shaped almond in your breakfast cereal wins hands down over casting chicken entrails for predicting the day ahead.

  3. I get that feeling when I find heart shaped rocks. Did you ate the heart shaped almond? lol

  4. The other morning when I made a latte, I noticed a heart shape in the froth. I snapped a photo and showed it off all day. My day started with love in my cup and as I remember, it was a great day that one.

  5. Sometimes we just have to take our happiness where we find it. It was a good day !

  6. Interesting how the more we look the more we see.

  7. Optimism in a cereal bowl.

  8. Now you done it. I will be looking for hearts in my cereal!
    Good one. I like 'GOOD FORECASTS'.

    That's better than Jesus' face burned into a piece of toast!!

  10. Nice..I'm going to start looking into my cereal bowl now, nice forecast for the day Rick.

  11. Underscoring Stephen's remark! I can't recall the last time I enjoyed a bowl of cereal, but yours looks mighty good.

  12. Just had my cereal and nothing like that in my bowl
