Cookies in the Moonlight

Good morning all. *yawn*  Just to warn you I am writing this B.C. (Before Coffee)

I slept in this morning because I didn’t get home until close to 2am. Last night, the total lunar eclipse was interesting despite the fact that it was too overcast to watch with our own eyes.

The Tellus Science Museum in Cartersville, GA was open for the eclipse, so the kids and I took a trip.  We got to go into the observatory and watch a feed of the eclipse on a television screen. Nothing could be seen through the telescope because of the cloud cover.

My daughter was typical “moody teen force on a family trip“. My son loved it. He learned toby gearsthe phases of the moon with cookies and got to play with gears in the kids section.

All in all it was a good trip. We had a late night but a fun one. Museum memberships are handy things to have.

Once upon a time there was a woman who was a writer. She was either cursed or blessed from birth to be so and there was much debate on which it was. One day a very discouraging (and not very original) person told her not to give up her day job. The woman smiled and said that was a wonderful idea. Following the unwittingly clever advice of her critic, the woman found a job working nights, which left her days free to write. Even better, the night job had an unusual schedule which packed two weeks worth of work into one, so the writer was able to have every other week off to sit on her front porch, daydream, and of course write. However, working at night and writing during the day left little time for sleep, so the poor writer occasionally went a little mad, but she decided it was an acceptable price to pay to be able to continue following her curse-blessing. Also she likes tea. :)
