Baby Birds and Butterflies

I have a bird's nest inside my wreath hanging on the front door.  The little birds are learning to fly; however, still no pictures.  While I was trying to snap pictures of the birds, I caught some butterflies in action.  Here are some pictures.
Also, too funny grandson son #2 story.  I sent Owen, 6 years old,  a book ordered direct from Amazon. Of course, I selected the book based on the age appropriate rating on Amazon, without actually seeing the book. The book was award winning and had lots of stars on the reviews.
Well, in recent phone conversation with Owen, I asked him did he receive the book, and if so, did he like it.  Yes, he received the book; however, here is his review:  "Mawmaw, it has too many words in it, and the words are too long."   Hahaha.  I guess I will have to work on that book selection process.

Interesting Color on this butterfly

Butterflies and Bad Days

Sometimes in the midst of a ordinarily bad day you can bump against something to see the beauty that is just waiting to be seen. Hey, you ould think it was there all along if only we would slow down enough to enjoy it. MyHere is what I mean:Photos include a bird outside of my home office window, my 2 Mobile grandsons playing at the park, a bird on neighbor's roof, sunset in St. Petersburg, FL,and a "teen age"Gosling" at strawberry Park.

Aftermath, so to speak.

I had my cataract surgery yesterday afternoon. I am still waiting for the eye patch to be removed this morning. Guess what I am not nuts. I really cannot see very well with my right eye. I NEED ANOTHER SURGERY. It will be a simple laser treatment. EVERYONE CONTINUED TO ASK ME WASN'T THE CATARACT SURGERY SO GREAT. I JUST WAS NT GETTING THE SAME "WOW" RESULTS. HERE ARE 2 PICTURES FROM MY WALK AT STRAWBERRY PARK IN MADISON MS ON Monday. This was in between rain SO NOW, I NEED THIS 2ND SURGERY TO TOUCH UP MY RIGHT EYE.

Merry Christmas - YES!!!!

Two days until Christmas - what a nice time of the year.  I am looking forward to and have already enjoyed much excitement in all of the children's voices with such an air of anticipation.  I took some pictures of a few Christmas lights around town. 

Additionally, we have enjoyed lots of fun events.  We saw "Annie" at New Stage Theater. We went to Ballet Magnificat performance of "Snow Queen" at Thalia Mara Hall. Additionally, we enjoyed the special Christmas program at St. Matthew's UMC presented by the choir.  The children's choir put on a great performance of their Christmas music.  There was also a special bunco, with lots of good food and fun fellowship.  And, our Madison Avenue book club did a cookie swap and reviewed the Book:  "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever". 

In memory of my dad, Phillip J Causey
