The kitchen window was being pelted with freezing rain, forming the beginnings of a crusty layer covering the snow. Something seemed out of place with the scene.
There is just something about a ladybug that makes me smile. I was intrigued by all of the spots on this one, and considered refreshing my memory as to whether there was factual information I should know about the number of spots a ladybug has. Maybe if I had remembered that Alexa was plugged in, I would have checked with her. Sometimes it is just fun to simply wonder.
I did remember that ladybugs can be wished upon, but considering how we were both a bit trapped in the house, I found it hard to believe that she was going to be able to orchestrate any wish granting. Hm, that sounds like I believe in the fulfillment power of spotted red wings under the proper atmospheric conditions. No, I am fully aware that wishing, hoping and waiting are not the best strategic plans for getting much done.
As I look at this photo though, I do wish my skin was not so dry. Not only do I know how to handle this situation, but I can both see and reach some hand lotion without even prying myself off the couch. Small victories are still victories!
