Thankful Thursday 9/8/2016

Happy Thursday! I have a lot to be thankful for this week. Yesterday our first monarch emerged! Mom sent me a picture while I was at my full time job, but the butterfly was released by the time I came home from the library at 6:30. I'm thankful mom sent me the pictures and I'm thankful we had the opportunity to raise two butterflies this season since we weren't sure how this year would be with the weird weather.

I'm also thankful for Karen, my library co-worker. She gave me a picture frame, which I will put the following picture in:

I'm thankful she thinks of me. She will also be bringing me in a shadow box. I definitely have uses for these things.

I'm also thankful that one my aunt's co-workers drives me home from the library some times. The library is in the township building and she's a township employee.

Next week is the Cat Stevens concert! I'm super excited to see him! What are you thankful for today?


  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    Congratulations on raising two more monarch butterflies this season! I hope they safely make the journey to a warmer clime before the first cold snap of the season.

    It was very thoughtful of Karen, your co-worker, to give you that picture frame. I love shadow boxes and made a couple of them over the years.

    Have an excellent Thursday and come over and rock with me at SDMM tomorrow night at midnight if you're in the mood to party. See you soon!

    1. Hi, Shady!

      Thank you! Sadly, I think these are the only two we will have this year. :( Aphids ate all of the milkweed and other flowers. It has been a weird year here weather wise. I'm thankful we had this opportunity.

      I love shadow boxes as well. I'd love to make one, but the last time I took woodshop... needless to say the bird house fell apart. :p That was 12 years ago.

      Thank you! Look forward to the party tonight! See you soon!
