So that mean I missed the whole autumn equinox! I didn't miss it exactly, I was right here and you were right there, but you, if you read this blog much, know how I like to blather on about sky events. I was robbed! But I'm sure you made it through just fine.
And what about the time change? I wasn't here to help you with that! Never mind That's not until November 6. Which is almost winter, so why do they say Fall Back for a reminder? Most likely a saying from Up North.
Anyway, today I start house/dog/cat sitting from an anonymous hilltop here on Culebra. This is one of those nice side things I do that doesn't really require eyes as much as heart (love the babies) and a vague sense of time (babies are snurfling all over you, must be time to feed them). Along with...well, that's pretty much it except for watering the green things, which is pretty easy. And enjoying the view. Which I'll share.
(there was a whole warning here that didn't show up! I'll recreate it if I can. First, thie next part is for grown ups. Please have all minors leave the room. Please have all people who don't like cursing leave the room. Please have all people who don't like drinking, or don't think drinking and drunk people can be funny leave the room)
Ok, to the three of you that are left (I'm very thankful for my friends). Frankly, laying around in bed is about the most strenuous sort of boredom I know. So, even though I'm not supposed to be stressing my eye (please, all medical advisors, leave the room)
In the meantime, meaning until it is time to go up the hill, I'll be doing this. But not so precariously.
