Some lucky contest winner will never have to wonder this again. I have a set of Ganz Dash/Smidgen/Pinch measuring spoons to raffle off! All I’m asking is that you follow me on Google+ and spread the word as I just started the G+ page over there and I have not one single clue on how to get my page out there.
PS, yes, I’m aware most of my fan base is FB users, and rafflecopter has people use FB to login. I call shenanigans.
So I did add an option for non-G+ users to still be able to enter
There is a saying “Chickens come home to roost”, meaning chickens always come back to their nesting grounds at night but I’ve never actually witnessed it. I usually herd them in around 7pm. Yes, I herd chickens. I use a long 2×2 piece of wood because I don’t have a shepherds hook. I should totally get one.
Anyway, I forgot to put the chickens back in the coop tonight. I had taken a nap and woke up way later than expected. By the time I got outside, it was starting to rain. I was worried I would be chasing them through mud. Nope! They were all huddled in the coop, tucked in for the night. Good Chickies!
I’m anxiously awaiting all the chickens to start laying, and I really need to find a source for cartons.
Beyond that, another start of a new semester, lots going on there, gonna be a really busy time. I’m taking an 18 credit load this term, 2 classes are broken up though so it’s more like 15, but cramming a full year of American Sign Language into one term. I’m in my final home stretch this year for my Earth and Environmental Sciences and my Geographic Information Systems degrees, I just have to push through (and pass) all these courses and be done with it. Then I suppose it’s time to look for a job. Not sure how I feel about that!
Last night my husband had a few friends from ASU out to watch the Perseid Meteor shower since, you know, we can actually see stars over our place still. (for now anyway, we’re losing them due to light pollution).
Can’t see anything closer to Phoenix so they come out to us. I did go out for a little while, laid out on one of our camping cots and just stared up at the skies for awhile.
They counted 60+ meteors in about 1.5 hours, I only saw about 7 of them because the mosquitoes were biting me anyway, despite being doused head to toe in bug-spray.
But the ones I did get to see were quick and beautiful streaks across the sky.
I caved to the bites so I gave up and headed in but at least I did get out and see them this time!!!
Last year when I tried, Ray had me getting up at 4 in the morning and I couldn’t see anything, I’d missed the peak. So it was nice to at least see a few of these little guys go flying!
OH, and I also saw Jupiter, I could lightly see the bands across Jupiter with my husbands telescope, and the moon last night was pretty cool, it was a crescent moon and orange when I got to see it (it was red when it was coming up). Focused in on the dark to light side and the craters. The moon is always a beautiful thing to look at through a telescope. Always.
On a little mini vaca in Tucson here. Ray is at a conference and Lilly and I are enjoying room service, naughty naughty. We went swimming last night which was nice. Tonight we are going to a party to watch the landing of Curiosity on Mars. Good thing we are going somewhere else to watch because the reception on our tv is awful.
Tomorrow we are taking Lilly to the zoo before we head
back. Really not a whole lot more to say, this is more of a resting vaca than action vaca.
Have a wonderful week Chicklets!!!
