As I write this, it's Valentine's Day. And the usual symbol is a big red heart, right? Well, we do things a little differently around here. For as long as I've known Kevin (almost 12 years), he's been finding me 4-leaf clovers. It's a thing. He has a knack that I've never seen before. Hawk eye, one might say. I have quite a collection. In fact, our wedding theme was "lucky in love" and we gave our guests a pewter 4-leaf clover good luck charm. Our invitations had the 4-leaf clover design, etc. Well, Kevin continues to be the master of finding them. A couple of days ago, Kevin found this one floating on the surface of one of the pond. It was all dried up, yet so perfect. It's always a good omen, some good luck is coming our way!
Speaking of love... look at our baby girls! We found Bobbie McGee with her hind legs on the floor and her whole torso on the couch next to Frankie... both watching a bit of TV. Bobbie loves Frankie so much... every once in a while she would give Frankie a kiss. Frankie, although she plays it tough as though she can't be bothered, but I once saw her kissing Bobbie back, so she's a real softy after all. I just love this picture of the both of them.
As for the rest of the week, well, it was rainy. Rain in February is very unusual. We had three days of wind and rain. At one point, it looked like a snowstorm... the light, white mist mixed with the wind created an odd phenomenon... except it was 25C/77F outside. And then, I drove over to our neighbour's house, 5 minutes down the road, and it was bone dry. So bizarre! It's like we had our own private weather pattern. And we felt quite lucky because this time a year everything could use a good dowsing. Everything is all green again. Yay!
It's my sister's birthday today, so I'd like to give a shout out to Lyne and wish her a happy day and year! Love you.
