Friday 26

Friday 26- I did my stretches and ran two miles.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 46 and 71 degrees, NW winds 14 to 25 MPH with gusts over 50, humidity around 22 percent, clear skies.
According to the National Weather Service: “Saturday: Sunny, with a high near 70. Northwest wind between 10 and 14 mph, with gusts as high as 18 mph. Saturday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 45. North northwest wind between 6 and 8 mph.”
My friend Mac came over for a visit and we sat around joking and telling stories for a spell. I like having visitors once in a while. Afterwards I did some chores around the house.
I went for my evening walk listening to Astro 10: General Astronomy: Lunar Phases and Glorious Eclipses.
I read aloud from the textbooks: “Astronomy Today” about Venus’ orbit and rotation which is backwards from the other planets; “The Cell: a Molecular Approach” more about chromatin.
I’ve been meaning to get into drawing for quite a while and I got inspired by a drawing by my online friend Ami. So I sat down and started drawing a picture of me, my telescope, a turtle, a palm tree, with the mountains in the background with the Sun setting. It looks very amateurish, but hey it’s a start. Maybe when I’m done I’ll scan it and post it, or maybe not.
I read a few chapters of “Chasing the Dime” by Michael Connelly. The more I read of the screw ups that the main character was making, he’s supposedly a genius, the more embarrassed I got for him; I really had to put the book down.
I watched “The Cave” (2005) about a bunch of cave divers that are called by a biologist to dive in a cave that was covered by an ancient church; there are large winged monsters down there, yikes!
I did my stretches, practiced my guitar, wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
