I got to go to another Talented and Gifted program tonight with Aaron. We made a turtle that looks a little like roadkill (hush, now) You make a turtle out of toothpicks and raisins if it's so easy!!!!
The caterpillar is entirely my own invention. Yessir, I showed it off, too. Aaron took it home.
Today is Nature Notes and I am missing it for the first time. I know exactly what I wanted to discuss, but I have been swamped at work, trying to stay active, going to choir and sleeping (whining) so I am totally unprepared. I was even considering a haiku on my chosen topic, but my haiku skills are pretty weak. Let's practice:
Squirrels nest high
Dark dots in the blackened sky
Um yea. I'm stumped. Earlier today I had a 5-syllable line there but it's gone. I really like how the bare trees expose all those nests.
And lastly, in the midst of this whirlwind of living, my Uncle Gene died this afternoon. I can't say I will miss him, for many reasons we won't discuss (I only saw him once in the past 17 years). But I care about my cousins and losing a parent just plain sucks no matter what.
