Happy Weekend!


It seems that time has been zooming by lately — can’t believe that the weekend is here!  Do you have fun plans?


J and I hatched ours for tomorrow over a whole-wheat-blueberry-strawberry pancake brunch — we’re going on the Austin Cool House Tours, can’t wait!  Anyone else from Austin going?

And speaking of hatching — look what hatched this morning!  Meet Cat, the black swallowtail butterfly that we raised from a caterpillar that we kidnapped from Simpson Prairie:


He sat on my finger for a while before he flew off.  I could go on and on about how his wings glittered in the morning sunshine, how fresh and happy he seemed, or the miracle of watching him change, or how I cried because it was so beautiful.

But I won’t. :)

Happy, happy weekend,
