So my week was fairly uneventful, but Green, Green’s week was pretty spiffy.
During a lull in between snow storms with promises of a cleared road he and a colleague went to the telescope.
The road was clear, clear of snow, clear of traffic, save the snow snails and wild turkeys.
Then on the way back a little action with the highway patrol including Green getting a pat down, a patrolman poised with his hand on his halter, and Green and his colleague being questioned at length. The message, ‘We’re astronomers not drug smugglers. No, we’re just spacey because we’re operating on a low amount of sleep after looking into space, not drugs induced.’ did get through, eventually.
See, an eventful few days.
Ask him about it, he tells a much better story with all the details.
Me? The highlights of my week so far?
1. Finding a cigar box of buttons from the past 70 years that my mother in law gave me.
2. Finally sticking to and making progress on a diet, in this case the Rubbish Diet. This week our waste volume is down to 22 liters from 43 liters. Wahoo. We’re still in the middle of clearing out years of stuff, so 22 liters isn’t bad at all. Other than the clutter clearing, most of the rubbish/trash is still mostly food wrapping, but the weekly food planning and using up leftovers is reducing our non-compostable food waste. Hmmmm, I wonder if that will go down when we get chickens?
