Sitting outside on the last day of Spring
Thursday, June 20, 2013
Summer will come early Friday morning 1:04am this year. I found a rather informative article from the Washington post that would be perfect for a common core article about the Summer Solstice, it's actually pretty scientific and is more informative than a text book and reads much better. I need to start to make a collection of these 'current events' articles and make a text book of sorts to use in the future if I ever get a school.
I watched the International Space Station fly overhead again tonight with my dad and my brother. It was pretty great and it followed a really long path this time. A few trees are in the way but that's the price you pay for suburban living. I am hoping there will be sightings in Arizona when I go. I am sitting outside in the backyard right now by my firepit that i lit a few hours ago. I make the most magnificent fires and a lot of the fire I have to work with is pretty wet right now. I've been asked to use up the pile that we don't have a cover for and save the covered wood for the fireplace indoors we heat the house with in the winter. My parents took down a huge tree and it's been sitting cut up for a long time now ready to burn and we just have too much, voila fire pit. I have been welcomed to burn it up for myself this summer. I made a perfectly timed fire again tonight too, it will burn down just in time for me to go to bed. The smaller two logs are almost done and the big one is burning well.
The NASA website says there's another sighting of the ISS tonight at 11:02 pm. I don't know if my trees are low enough but I'll be looking. Appears 10 degrees above west and travels to 18 degrees above WSW. That's in 20 minutes. I've been staying up too late this week (ahem), so I've been tired and sore and didn't get to the gym but got a bunch of walking in having to report to a different school for scoring. My commute was thrown a bit upside down this week but I figured out more ways to get to more schools for next year. I thought I met someone, but he wasn't there today and didn't get my number yesterday. I sent him an email at work. I hope I hear from him. Only four more days until work is over, and I just want to get them over with and pack for Arizona. I'll write again soon.
