boy walking is a lot harder when the muscles are still fatigued and stiff as a board, but went out and walked a mile anyway (25 minutes), not sure if this will loosen the muscles up or fatigue them more, but the rest of the body needed to get out. surprised that my time was not really much different despite the funny gait, one side moving correctly, the other side moving as one part.

and on the way back, found a tiny butterfly on the newly tarred road. thinking that was no place for a butterfly, picked him up, he didn't resist. gave him some water in my bottle cap, he still stayed on my hand, brought him home, took some photos of him, gave him some more water, and he didn't fly away. thinking maybe he was old and dying, but not sure, set him on a flower cluster of one of our butterfly bushes, thinking even if he were dying, that would be a better place to go. or, maybe he could get nectar from the flowers and regain his strength. always an adventure out there, never knowing what each day will bring. heart
