We prepared for the Sabbath cleaning and laying out church cloths. We had a nice meal of clam chowder. After, we read the nativity using the little figures you see with Eliza. Clara played "What Child is This" for us. The Buckley's gave us a jar to put milk in to give to Santa and our next door neighbors gave us these unbelievable cookies.
Butterflies are known for their unusual life cycle that includes a spectacular metamorphosis from caterpillar to a colorful winged adult. They have an erratic yet graceful flight pattern that attracts attention when they pass. The Ancient Greek word for butterfly is psȳchē, which means soul. I particularly admire their symmetry and kaleidoscope of colors.
