Daffodils

The daffodils came out early this year.  Or so it seems… maybe they always seem to come up early.

It just seems a bit strange to see such a vivid sign of the coming spring so early in the middle of the winter.

The woman who comes to clean my house every other week took it upon herself to cut some of the flowers and leave them on my kitchen counter.

I wrapped them in a black drop cloth and made this photo (with my iPhone 7) which serves as the ‘cover photo’ on my Facebook page for the time being.

I was afraid I’d missed the boat…

…when I waited until  after the World Series to get myself a Cubs cap.

I’ve been wearing it ever since, and it has provoked endless greetings of “Go Cubs!” wherever I go.

And it’s a walking illustration of my default answer to the question, “How are you?”

“How about those Cubs?”
