Partial eclipse, etc.
Had another opportunity to watch a celestial event on Thursday: a partial eclipse of the sun.
It was a tricky time - just around sunset so I knew nearby trees would most likely block all the good stuff.
But I threw together another trusty oatmeal box viewer (basically just a pinhole camera) to watch events unfold.
I got to see a bit of it, but the best was lost behind the foliage. Still, it was fun to sit on the front stoop and be part of the show.
Closer to home (planet-wise), I've been cleaning up the annuals: zins, marigolds, coleus.
The pile is growing and the beds are bare. I spent hours mowing lawn and rowing shredding leaves yesterday. *woof*
Thankfully, there was something hot and savory waiting for me on the stove when I called it quits for the day! (Check out Chef's page.)
Today or tomorrow I'll go out and bag/drag the leaves to the back and mulch the bare beds.
How about you? Getting stuff done? They are STILL predicting snow for 1st weekend of November. Gaaaaah!
