Morning Butterfly Shot!!

Last night I was all set to make a roasted chicken dinner full on with roasted potatoes and veggies!  Well when I took my organic free range Whole Food's chicken out of the package I had to move on to plan B.  The chicken was BAD, yuck!!  I thought about quickly running to the store to exchange but frankly it wouldn't be all that quick and I was so disgusted, I couldn't bear the thought of having chicken.  So I still roasted potatoes and instead made a backup scramble (literally) with ham, garlic & onion, tomatoes, herbs, & Parmesan.

This is a long story as to why I'm not posting food today.  I wanted to show the baked chicken (the only way I really eat chicken).  All though the scramble tasted great, it didn't look all that pretty to show a photo of :(

SO, When I was out at my garden this morning I shot this monarch who was sunning his wings getting ready for the day.  I thought it was a great reminder of how animals always take time to prep themselves for their day and we often do not.  I'm sure you watch your dog or cat do long stretches in the morning.  So I took a little inspiration and might find a little more time in my morning to do just this!

    I just had this happen to me this morning with a white moth! I will be making a very similar post to this later today, how funny!

  2. Beautiful picture and beautiful message! Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. That's too bad about the chicken. I can never bear the hassle of returning food. My mother is the best, when stores have a money back guarantee she actually takes them up on it.

  4. Love the photo!! Glad you got a good start to your day!!
