"Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a Butterfly" proverb
I woke up to a surprise this morning. About 10 days ago I bought a butterfly kit, with 2 plants and a Chrysalis, hopefully to see a butterfly emerge. It was very cold here last night, so I brought my plants inside and put them on my kitchen counter.
There it was, on the side of the box, hanging
on for dear life. How exciting, I had hoped to
see it emerge, but it did not wait for me.
It looked like it was ready to fly, so I brought
it back outside.
I watched and waited, and waited some
more, absolutely no movement. I went
back inside to have some breakfast, and it
was gone in a flash.
This may be "old hat" to some of you but I had
never seen this before. As much as I love butterflies,
this was all new to me. Great fun!
Have a wonderful day!
PS: A reader, Lucy, wrote to me this morning saying that she was
enjoying me blogging more often. I explained that the reason
is, I am "between jobs" as they say. I just finished one book
and I am awaiting word on some proposals that I sent in.
Meanwhile, I am getting all my hand-outs ready for my classes
in NH. I am thrilled to learn that two of my classes are sold
