Can you believe it’s December already?
I’m the featured artist over on Weekly Artist — check it out! Drop a comment, so they know you stopped by.
I am in NY today, for Costume Imp’s birthday. Left yesterday, will be home tomorrow night.
Friday was busy and stressful. Had to do some errands, fretted a lot.
Started doing my coursework for the Introduction to Astronomy. I’m not going for certification, just auditing. I like the class a lot, but the math is beyond me. If I was willing to put in about 30-40 hours at the outset catching up, I could learn it and do it, but I don’t have those hours and the access to a tutor, so I’m just auditing, taking notes, etc. I’m still getting a lot out of it, and I’m not sucking away time from anyone who is going for certification.
This class will be a huge help in the aviation mystery, since, especially at that time (late 1940’s) a lot of night navigation was still done by stars.
Plus, it’s a lot of fun.
After watching some of the lectures, I went out to “look up” and put what we discussed into practice — but since it was getting ready to snow, I didn’t see much!
Will have to remedy that later this week.
Saturday was better, although I’m just so fatigued all the time lately. There was a line at the post office — looks like everyone’s got their cards done and their decorations up already. And it’s only December 1! I always felt so organized in NY, and I feel so behind here!
Finished making Costume Imp’s present. It was lots of fun. Hopefully, he’ll gt a kick out of it.
Sunday morning, the newsletter went out for December, and then, off I went!
I’m looking forward to celebrating Imp’s mega-birthday!
