A Baby Butterfly, Escalating Heat

When I went to Foods for Living (to buy organic ice cream, what an oxymoron) on Monday, another shopper stopped me outside the store. She told me that a butterfly had just emerged from its case, and showed me where.

I am so grateful that this “stranger” took the time to share her discovery. I would have missed it. What a wonderful sight. It was velvety, nearly black, and stood absolutely still as I took its portrait.

Yesterday it was hot, but the sun hid behind thin clouds off and on. I was able to take a walk under the shaded sidewalks in my neighborhood in mid-afternoon, and be relatively comfortable.

Today it is 87F indoors and 92F outdoors (33.3c) and it’s just past noon. I think a walk should wait until after dinner this time.

We had watermelon last night. Today is all about iced tea! I like hot weather, but I do know how to slow down and find the shade when it gets this high.

Have a miraculous day. Maybe you will see a butterfly, too.
