I hope everybody got a chance to take a peek at last night’s Super Moon Lunar Eclipse. I wasn’t certain whether or not I’d be staying up to look at it, but the weather here was warm, the clouds (mostly) stayed away, and the moon got high enough above the trees just before 9:00 PM to light up the yard like it was daytime, so I figured why not (plus I took today off just so I could stay up late). A full-moon lunar eclipse when the moon is at perigee isn’t going to happen again until 2033, so this was quite possibly the last one I’ll ever get to see. It reminded my that I really ought to sit outside and look at the stars more often. And maybe even play with the telescope that’s mostly been gathering dust in a closet for the past few years. I’ll have to put it on my list of things to do.

I’m at the point where, when I do something, I often figure I’m probably doing it for the last time in my life. I think I mentioned a while back that I bought a case of LED light bulbs because Home Depot had them for pretty cheap. I have CF bulbs in all my lighting fixtures at home (those that aren’t LED lamps, anyway), plus a pretty good supply of CF bulbs squirreled away in various places, so – assuming nobody breaks into the house and steals them – I’m pretty sure I’ll never have to buy another light bulb again.

Except for the heat, that is. Much like Oklahoma, it’s gotten really hot and humid around here (not Oklahoma hot, of course, but yesterday was the hottest day of the year here at 93°, and today should be the third day in a row that it’s gotten into in the 90s). The normal high temperature for this time of year is about 75°, and it’s looking like we won’t get lower than the current 76°. So, yeah, for us, that’s hot.
