I've always loved decks with Happy Squirrel cards, being a big Simpson's fan :D Though I often find it hard to associate them with an experienced fortune-teller gasping in shock and then backpedalling by saying "The cards are vague and mysterious." On the negative side, I guess if that squirrel is so happy about having all those nuts, maybe someone else doesn't have any! And certainly some people see squirrels as vermin, though I think them quite wonderful. After all, what counts as "vermin", like "weeds", is very much a matter of human perception.
Generally, though, I get a positive vibe from this card in most decks, and the Mibramig version is no exception. A happy looking squirrel stands holding a big nut, with a whole cache of them in front of her. Yellow butterflies dance around her head like ribbons in her hair, and she looks up at us shyly. To me, she seems more delighted than gloating, with maybe a bit of inquisitiveness thrown in for good measure.
This is, for me, a card of having worked for something and being happy with what you've achieved. A card of making the most of what you find, because you stay open to the possibilities of the world.
Not quite sure what I'll achieve today. Not much in the way of work, I imagine, as we are going to a "superheroes" birthday party with Big Boy. What I hope to achieve in that regard is to actually get him to wear the costume we bought him. Knowing what he's like with new things, I've had him try it on the last three days in a row - exposure therapy :D Maybe I should have started it earlier, though :o Seems like this is the Happy Squirrel of Doom, and others will have well-behaved kids who wear their costumes... Wish me luck!
I am grateful not to be going to this party alone.
