After a lovely week at the beach, Joseph & I are back home. We read, relaxed on the beach, read, visited our favorite plus some new thrift stores, read, walked on the beach & read. It seems all but one lone hummingbird left for warmer climes while we were away. The leaves are beginning to cover the ground in places. I spotted a chrysalis shortly before we left, on a tarp covering the cistern, of all places. It had beautiful gold specks that shimmered like the real thing. The chrysalis was empty when we returned, but I did spot another caterpillar on the milkweed yesterday. Speaking of reading, I got a great book at the library, See You in a Hundred Years. It's the story of a NY city couple who moved to rural VA to live as they did in 1900. So far, a pretty interesting read.
