Thankful Thursday 9/3/2015

I feel thankful for one of my friends. For the past year and a half he lent a shoulder, then made a suggestion. I took the suggestion and I think the suggestion is going to work out. I was so happy yesterday and thanked him up and down. I'm thankful for all of my friends, especially when they are patient.

I'm also thankful for being given the second opportunity to raise another set of monarch. Mom noticed the eggs last Thursday and one hatched on Friday. They all don't grow at once, they grow in stages. The last one hatched on Sunday. We have five little critters and since we have the cage now, they should all survive this time. They have been nom, nom, nomming and they're really growing!

Can't wait for them to all turn into Monarchs, but the caterpillars are really neat too! Although aphid infestations aren't good, maybe in this case it's good in a way because it gave us an opportunity to raise these beautiful creatures twice!

What are you thankful for today?


  1. Hi, dear Jessica Marie! Given that I am away from the comfort of my home office this week and busy reuniting with family members in another city, I am thankful for this small window of opportunity to stop in and say hello.

    I am also thankful to have found a great new friend in you. :)

    I wish you luck with your new crop of Monarchs, dear Jessica Marie. Have a splendid day!

    1. Awww. I'm thankful to have found a great new friend in you too, Shady.

      I'm also thankful that you could stop by while on your little trip to say hello! I hope you have a great time, dear Shady!

      Thank you and have a great day as well. :)

  2. Your pictures are lovely! I am thankful that you are continuing to write and grow, I am so proud of you.
