Today is Day 10 of Summit Musings Two Weeks In Autumn Photo Challenge. We are in currently in Oregon City. We had a wonderful weekend planned which included attending "Oklahoma" and then a birthday bash for 8 year old Buttercup. Before we even left the house we had a call from our youngest daughter informing us that she was at the emergency room with her fiance, and her daughter was at the home of a neighbor and friend. "J" was admitted to the hospital, tested in every way imaginable, then was wheeled into surgery Saturday to remove his gallbladder. We are praying for a swift recovery and that in three weeks he will be ready for that wedding planned! We are all breathing easier today. (Except J. His post surgery comfort is slow coming.)
As a result, I'm pulling a photo I took last week while on a bug hunt with my grandson Z-bub. I believe this preying mantis knew I was taking the photo.
He sat up and turned his head. Perhaps I looked like dinner.
(ps. Oklahoma was fantastic! The singers. Wow! We had a great birthday celebration, too. We were all just worried about J, and occasionally had some guilt feelings that we were going on without him. Our daughter Amanda was able to get away from the hospital for some birthday pizza and cake. The cake was home-made by our daughter Karmyn with cherry cream filling. Sinful. Our granddaughter stayed with us so that her mommy could go to the hospital during the day.)
I am a grandmother, a wife, a mother, a sister, and a friend.
I know that a woman who will tell her age or her weight will tell anything. I won't tell mine, so you can trust me. I have a cat. I have a duster that I don't use.
The photo header is one I have taken of Gram's antique writing desk. My dust.
