Did you see it ??

A very rare occurrence: Super Blue Blood Moon. Last time: The year 1866. I have trouble sleeping so decided to venture outdoors for a picture. (“Sleep aids”  don’t help!! Too many things on my mind!!) Then I started this message and followed the references… on early morning local television. I couldn’t take “later” pictures because the moon had dipped lower on the horizon and was obscured by trees. Yes, I could have walked to an open area but I lacked initiative to grab coat, hat and gloves.

Workout ?!

Remember when the workmen CARE hired randomly, recklessly dumped “my garden” in the wooded area?? Slowly, I’ve retrieved items and moved them to a more suitable location. Sleep deprived… but I had a goal to complete beautification of that area today. Burning limbs and leaves; hosed a dozen planters and put them under car-port for future “yard sale.” Weary, and hungry, I came indoors about 1:10. It’s 1:50 PM as I publish this (while eating a yum-yum delicious grilled cheese sandwich made with top-quality cheese and expensive whole-grain bread).

Window on the world !!

My new home is situated on a very busy street!! My computer sits between two windows so I have an excellent view of traffic. The (just moved in) neighbor is doing yard work in his sunny yard. Due to lots of trees, my yard is still shaded. I’ll venture out later. Funny about individual preferences: I “add” to a yard while a neighbor “subtracts.” (A dead tree was removed in my front yard.)

Delightful !!

“Home cooking” !! A couple of slices of top-quality thick-sliced bacon to flavor a kettle of beans. Later in the day, I’ll prepare short-grain brown rice for a balanced protein meal–with homemade coleslaw.

FYI: January groceries cost $170.29 (and many items will carry over for future months).

Challenger tragedy thirty-second anniversary

The Challenger tragedy was a traumatic event in my life. I was secretary to a Program Director, at NASA, at Edwards Air Force Base, California. (Secretary to Program Director of shuttle“hands on” sub-contractor Serv-Air.) In his office, we watched the launch on closed-circuit NASA television. Everyone in the room was stunned with disbelief as we saw the Challenger explode. It remains an indelible impression in my memory. ~~ Many employees lost our jobs; it was six years before the launch of the Endeavor shuttle.
