Today has been a good day. Although I have some kind of nasty cold, my house is quiet, smells good, is clean, and is on its merry way to being ready for cooler weather. I feel a sense of accomplishment as I have put away Spring clothing for the family and hung up or folded the Fall and Winter attire. It just feels good.
I decided to make myself a lovely omelet for lunch. I sauteed some
fresh red onions, poured the beaten eggs atop, added some fresh
DonSalsa, ham, and cheese. Once it was finished, I gracefully garnished
it with fresh basil sprigs from my generous friends. I’m glad I made it
so terribly lovely for I was about to welcome an unexpected guest.
I took my picture perfect omelet out to my patio to enjoy in the
fresh Fall breeze. The birds were singing closely, my flowers bursting
their last hoorahs before the first frost, and the world was at peace.
Suddenly, I heard a faint buzzing. That faint buzzing quickly became
close and Mr. Yellow Jacket appeared. Oh, he was a fine yellow jacket
indeed, all yellow and black with strong shiny wings. I just watched him

the calm of the day, and waited. He was ever-so-polite and never put
his tiny little feet on my food. Oh no, he was a gentleman indeed.
He walked right up to a little piece of ham that had slipped away
from my gourmet delight and began to nibble away at it. It was
incredible! His impressive jaws cut like a knife as he took his bite
with great determination. One chunk was all he needed. He seemed to give
me a little nod of gratitude as he turned and flew off with his prize.
I wondered if he would run and tell the others of the silly lady with
the delicious omelet. Like I said, he was a gentleman and must have
understood that additional guests were not invited. I sat in peace for
the remainder of my meal. What a curious meal indeed.
I am glad that I made a friend today and that I wasn’t too busy
shewing him away. In some teensy tiny corner of the world today, I made a
