My three kids still here on earth get so excited by the "flying mice" (bats) who live behind the window shutter.
I prefer some much more colorful, day-time beauties! Thank you to my hubby for capturing these first four delightful photo memories!
As I shared in more detail, a couple posts back (Thrashed Metabolism), this picture evidences that I've come a LONG way with balance. Still good? Not really. I had to use two walking sticks to move around this uneven terrain, but standing still, I could even throw without a cane nor a fall!

I guess butterflies weren't such a big "thing" for me yet, last time we were at the cabin (two years ago, I think?), or maybe I simply forgot prior discoveries (one advantage of short term memory loss is that I am never short on exciting "new" discoveries). I had fun taking pictures of a few butterfly things I found around the cabin this year.

My younger two, who have each been working on flight hours toward a pilot's licence since they were eight, got to meet two pilots while we were there.

Female pilots are a rather rare breed!
Speaking of airplanes, I haven't flown (ridden, I never piloted, though I often used to think I might really enjoy learning) since the strokes. We are making a cross-country trip at Christmas. I'm
a little (ok, quite a bit!) nervous with all the stroke changes in how my body processes EVERYTHING. My fear of heights is much calmer, but still not gone. Prayers appreciated!
