Butterflies and Board Games
The buddleias in our garden are still blooming, drawing butterflies of all sorts. This weekend we saw a red admiral (above)...
...and a painted lady feasting on the blossoms.
I ticked several tasks off my to-do list yesterday. I bought my ticket to Florida for late September, to visit my mom and help her move. I went to the hospital to have my pre-colonoscopy blood test and to pick up the prep kit. (Ugh -- it's scheduled for Saturday.)
I cleaned out and organized some areas of the library -- the AP and SAT study books, for example, which people donate to us but which eventually become outdated and marked up and need to be recycled. I also weeded our short story collections, because we're going to use that shelf for board games -- a new library feature! -- and we had a bunch of ancient story books that are old and sad-looking.
I hope the games become popular, though I imagine they could make some kids late to class!
