This little guy was the cause of great attention and observation today, and even tears from the girls when a spider threatened to eat him. Mommy was of course ready to give a spiel about how things happen in nature, but John, hating to hear his sisters cry, took care of matters and obliterated the spider. Tears. Gone. Caterpillar--moving on to safer ground.
I was sitting on the steps out back while all this was happening, unable to dig holes in the concrete we call dirt, and so it was a good time to finally start the felted bag order I need to finish. Who buys autumn sedum in August when the ground is this hard? Me.
I've spent the day rebounding from a bad early morning dream having to do with childhood. I just can't seem to shake it, but several things have helped.
Kevin: "At least it was just a dream". hmmmm
Halsey: (not knowing she was helping and related to something totally different) "It does sound like a very busy, but fun few weeks coming up for your family. Enjoy them. We put so much into our lives because we see so much potential, we enjoy learning new things, and watching the world through our children's eyes. Enjoy and have faith it will all fall into place just fine." hmmm, watching the world through our children's eyes, that must have been the caterpillar part.
Magazine: "Choose happiness." hmmm, heard it before, like a broken record, yep, think I'll do that today. Think I'll pass some of those happy thoughts on to this little dahlia that just can't quite seem to open it's bloom.
