Caught Butterflies . . . .

Greetings and Salutations (credit to Charlotte for that) one and all . . .

Thought I'd venture into the land of Blog. It's a bit intimidating, this. Want it to be thoughtful and entertaining, not mere minutiae.

Coming up with the name presented a few moments of cluelessness then I remembered two words I wrote down last month. Caught butterflies. Thought it might be the name of a book someday. Still might be. I picture wild, random beautiful things--butterflies or thoughts--caught for a moment, then released. I would never want them to die in captivity.

What is hilarious today--Tre giddy from novacaine at the dentist. I think he was having a sort of placebo effect, mistaking it for "laughing gas." More like "giggling gas."

What is mournful today--two daughters going out of town for 5+ days . . . one daughter getting senior pictures taken (She is not long for this house.)

What I'm thankful for today--Tre getting a "good stick" at the dentist--getting stuck is the worst part, don't you think . . . cooler weather

What I'm reading today--Stephen King's memoir/writing book

What I'm eating/drinking today--Starbucks skinny caramel macchiato is the only thing worth noting thus far . . .
