First Light

Six months and finally light passes through it. Still a lot of soldering and finishing. But it's getting there. Slow. And. Steady.

An it's gone

The weekend, it's over. It's work and school as usual. But then it's religious education starting tonight. I have a seventh grade class this year. All new kids. No one that I know, for my youngest is in high school. My bag is packed. Games. Cups. Music. Paper bags. All in His name.

A First

Picked up a snake. So little. Progress even in baby steps, is still progress.

Finally... There is light at the end of this project. It will be interesting to see how this all goes together. A lot of different new techniques will be employed

Time: The Best Gift Of All

Walking with a friend yesterday we discussed time: the best gift of all. Time spent with family and friends. Priceless. Watched the eclipse last night with my little one. Though she is not so little these days. We used my oldest daughter's telescope. Which was left home when she moved out west after college. While watching we texted her and thanked her for this opportunity. A great TIME was had by all.

Didn't Go.

All that planning, training, mapping out the route to be sidelined. Woke up this morning feeling sick. Headache. Body aches. Upset stomach. Dressed in my cycling clothes, I crawled back into bed and slept another 3 hours.

I'm thinking about the first space flights that would get sidelined due to weather conditions. Astronauts waiting suited up in the capsule for hours only to learn it was a no go. Disappointment.

My trip is only to New Hampshire not into space. Like the astronauts, my window will open up again. But until then, it's training and planning as usual.

Sometimes motivational is over the top. Resulting in the opposite reaction.

Tomorrow is the big ride. Legs rested. Map reviewed. Clothes almost picked out. Need to buy food. This time tomorrow I should be on my way...

What do you do for a living?

We took the day off yesterday and went to the Big E. Did my best to pretend I didn't have a job. Forgetting the office and what awaits today. But can you imagine what it would be like to ride an extreme pogo stick for a living? Wonder if there are any ladies getting into this field?
