I had high hopes of posting these cute fortune teller monkeys last night when I got home from Florida. But my flight was delayed for two hours and my computer was doing an upgrade. The fates were against my posting, but I had good fortune for the rest of my travel. I arrived in relatively warm weather -- none of the ice storm that I missed still lingered -- and there were lots of cabs at the airport.
I was entranced by these adorable little seers at one of the airport gift stores. They were a little pricy for an impulse purchase, and I was happy to settle for pictures. They are fortune tellers. When their hand is pressed you can ask a question and you get an answer when you press their little foot. Note the question mark on the right feet.
I had two posts prepared on my phone while I was away, but neither would publish. I'm not sure what the problem was and I think figuring it out may be beyond my technical skills. Happily I can post the old-fashioned way from my computer. I'll be able to share pictures in the next day and I've got lots of them, especially of our trip to Fairchild Tropical Garden. It was spectacular, a word I don't use often, but deserving of this excursion. As a preview of a coming post...
It's tough bundling up in layers after the wonderful (and warm) weather in Florida. Yes, there was a little rain and a time or two of overcast, but it was lovely and I especially enjoyed not wearing boots, gloves and a heavy coat. I wish I could have shipped some of it north and boxed it up and brought it back with me. I'm back in wintercoatland and it's time to head for the gym and then the grocery. Real life calls!
As always, thanks for visiting and keep cozy.
