Lunar Eclipse 1During last night, we were treated to a marvelous celestial exhibition.  It required us to set an alarm for about 4:00 a.m., then stand out in the cold constantly trying to snap photos, but what a show!

This photo is an official one taken with massive equipment we obviously don't have, but it shows how it really looked.  You can find more photos online if you are interested.

Another camp fall work week

2015 Camp Fall Cleanout 01Once again, we just spent another week up in the mountains volunteering at a children's camp facility to do whatever upkeep was necessary to keep everything in workable condition.  Both the Doc and I have developed our areas of personal interest or expertise, and we tend to do the same things every year, but each time does bring its own version of challenges and experiences.

One of my favorite current views is from the fire pit I rebuilt last year looking over the grounds I've personally done my fair share of reclaiming from wild nature.

Winners and losers

Winners 01As Doc Leo doesn't like to stray very far from his internet connection and his kitty cats, we don't seem to ever take vacations now that he's retired.  Thus I get stuck having all my obligations around the property staring me in the face with no break. 

To combat that, in order to have a bit more personal time, I apparently have ended up throwing myself into my sewing site with more participation than I really should dedicate. 

Here is a recap of some of the ups and downs I've experienced recently.  The recent ups are particularly rewarding!
