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.

I got a lot done today. I hope to get a lot done tomorrow.

I walked in Travis Farm Park at lunch.  This is a little park in Murphy. I hoped to see hummingbirds, but instead I saw butterflies and Eastern Bluebirds.

After work, I walked in Crowley Park.

The news is full of difficult things. The police inquiry into the deranged terrorist who shot 500 people in Las Vegas continues to produce conflicting and odd surmises of the fellow.  The president reneged on an immigration deal designed to help folks brought here as children. There "should be" room for compromises on these immigration issues, but nobody seems able to find it. The horrid behavior of accused serial harasser Harvey Weinstein reads like a bad parody of a casting couch scenario.  Social media erupted in critical tweets after Meryl Streep withheld comment until the scandal was unearthed. I thought social media  a bit harsh on that part. Meanwhile, the Vice President staged a walkout from a football game over the kneeling at the national anthem issue that was even less authentic than anything described in the golden age movie days of Photoplay Magazine. 

Tonight we watched on PBS as Penelope Keith visited villages in Scotland.

breakfast: kix and skim milk; lunch: roast beef sandwich and wheat bread and baked chips; dinner: BBQ turkey, green beans, roll, corn
