Saturday:) Social Butterfly on the Square

21 Nov

“Butterflies are nature’s tragic heroes. They live most of their lives being completely ordinary. And then, one day, the unexpected happens. They burst from their cocoons in a blaze of colors and become utterly extraordinary. It is the shortest phase of their lives, but it holds the greatest importance. It shows us how empowering change can be.” 
― Kelseyleigh Reber, If I Resist


I’m not going to complain about the dropping temps here in Texas because all my friends back in Chicago are posting pictures of their big snow storm. 

It was a lovely sunny day, so after my writing group, I scooted over to the square to visit with friends. Elizabeth and Kaylyn were pretty busy at Sweet Spot brewing up hot chocolate and grande mocha mociadohadyyacallits (I don’t drink coffee, so I don’t know all the dumb names for the dumb coffee.) But, I did take a quick group selfie between surges.

Miss Elizabeth was being silly. At least they didn’t do the bunny ears behind me.

Then I went over to the visitors center to chat with Miss Sue. I wanted to take her picture, but she said, “Let me take yours.” Ok!

They had their tree up already. Next weekend is the big HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS event. A lot of fun things to do on the square next weekend.

I took another selfie with my little friend, Big Foot, outside the visitors center.

We have the same hair-do, long and straggly and wind blown.

Like the caterpillar, this butterfly has burst from her cocoon to “become utterly extraordinary.” 

As the quotes says about the butterfly, “It is the shortest phase of their lives, but it holds the greatest importance. It shows us how empowering change can be.”

    I love your long hair, butterflies, and your enthusiasm for the holidays. I miss my writing group, don’t like Christmas before Thanksgiving, and sorry for everyone else’s weather. It was in upper 70’s here and sunny. A seven minute road trip and three hour walk during low tide brought us to trickling waterfalls and gorgeous sea caves. I met David and Sita walking their dogs and will invite them for Thanksgiving.
