missing monaarchs

Sunday I was up a little at Weight Watchers. This week's seminarian at the Way church service was a very good speaker. For the second week in a row, the speaker's little intro bio introduced the speaker as having a special interest. The previous Sunday, the speaker's special interest was in bridging the gap between origins originating in east Asia and Christianity.  This week's speaker was interested in mission work in impoverished areas. It's good that folks want to help out with both these fields. But it begins to make me wonder if the useful but unhip task of being a pastor at a church comes off as too prosaic for would-be saints. 

We ate lunch at the House Cafe. In the afternoon, I walked in Bethany Lakes Park to Story Park and back again. I got photographs of Monarch butterflies and Gulf Fritillary Butterflies.  In the evening, I watched television, foregoing a chance to be more productive.

I have not seen the handful of Monarch caterpillars on our milkweek plants this past few days. I know that such caterpillars are not as likely to become bird food,because their milkweed diet makes them taste toxic to birds. But though I see evidence of lovingly-chewed leaves, I do not see either caterpillars or chrysalis. We'll see what I see next.

Breakfast: Kix cereal and skim milk.  Lunch: oven-fried catfish, vegetable soup, fruit, baked potato.  Dinner: Mexican chicken bake, salad.
