Feast Your Eyes On This Butterfly

June 1, 2010
Holy Moley!! It's already June!! That has got to be the fasted five months on record. If I'm not careful, Christmas will be here while I'm figuring out which summer plants to put in the garden!

Tootsie and I just got back from her morning chemo, so now the day is ours till 4:20 this afternoon when we go back for treatment #2. I hate to wish away days, but after tomorrow afternoon, we'll be good to go for another four weeks.

Have you noticed yet the new slideshow? We have another awesome kit for the month of June, so do visit the forum and start collecting all the pieces. This month's kit is titled "My Summer Garden" and Snowy was responsible for the theme and colors. I know you're going to like it.

Yesterday at work, I was able to get another batch of nice photos. Luck was with me, and the birds and the squirrels and chipmunks were willing to let me have a few nice shots. Also, there was a lovely blue butterfly just a sitting and waiting for me and my little ole camera. And what a beauty this one was!! Blue coloring on the backside of it's wings, and grayish-brown on the underside of the wings. Have a look here.

Is this a beauty? Or is this a beauty? Some days, I just get lucky. I even got a photo of Daddy Cardinal feeding his youngster. Either that or he was kissing Mommy Cardinal. I'll save that photo for tomorrow and you can decide for yourself.
Today we got our Week Five ( and final) assignment for Journal Camp. For this one, we have to scrap a layout of a memory or event that we feel is important for us to remember. However, the catch this week is that we cannot use any photos. Just background, journaling and embellishments. I will have to give some thought to this one. It shouldn't be difficult because there are a million memories I don't want to forget. It's just hard to delve into them and figure out which one to scrap.
I was going to give you a new freebie tomorrow, but you have been so good listening to me babble here that I have decided to give you the freebie today. This one is special. I was thinking of some of my friends and family members who are battling to survive each day. I hope you like this one.
Now I think I will enjoy a cup of coffee, and maybe put in a load of laundry or maybe call and chat with a friend. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a marvelous day.
Hugs, Edna B.

What a beauty !!! Butterflies are quite rare here at the coast, they don't seem to like the sharp wind we have and are found more further inland. Id love to get one like that in front of my camera.Thanks for the reminder , gotta go and see what she writes re. journaling challenge. Although I already know what to journal about,lol. Hugs :)
