Travis and I bought some prayer flags when we were in North Carolina for our anniversary. We've tried to hang them a few times, but you're supposed to put them up on favorable, sunny, breezy mornings, and we were thwarted by gloom, rain, and sleepiness. But today was such a perfect morning, and according to the Dharma Calendar it was favorable. It wasn't really breezy when we first went out, but as soon as we started hanging them, a nice wind kicked up.
The prayers are carried on the wind, which is why you're supposed to hand them on breezy days. Plus, today is St. Patrick's Day, and we're both semi-Irish, so more luck for us! And double-plus, yet another happy omen; can you guess what this is?
Luna Moth! I've never seen one in the wild before, and this one camped out above our front door. She's been there for at least a day. Did you know luna moths don't have mouths? They only live for a week, and they spend that time mating and laying their eggs. In some areas, they're endangered due to habitat destruction. My friend Tami actually raised some from eggs!
The dogs got baths yesterday. Molly LOVES being bathed and brushed. This is her "I'm adorable and you cannot resist hugging me" face.

Do you have any lucky traditions in your house?
