I don't think the Solar Eclipse will be seen here in S. Cal. unless you go inland. We have so much cloud cover over the ocean right now. The sun will come out late in the morning and by 4 p.m. it is gone behind the clouds. This is our air conditioning. We are leaving May Gray and approaching June Gloom. Does it seem possible that school is just about out for the summer?
Yesterday I got the windows in the computer room cleaned on the inside. Well, I got the louver window washed on the outside too. We have louvers in the two front bedrooms. Nice to get the air at night without it blowing on your face as you sleep. Maybe today I'll get them washed in another room.
A year ago today I started watching my food intake by writing down all that I eat, along with my water and exercise. I have lost 43.5 lbs by the scale this morning. That puts me about 12 lbs from goal. Maybe I would be at goal if I could get rid of this fluid I'm carrying around. It does mess up my system putting pressure on my bladder and bowels. That means trips to the bathroom just about every 2 hours. Such a bummer. I guess it's worth it if it will get rid of the cancer markers. I just hope the stomach will shrink one of these days. My appetite has greatly shrunk as it takes so little to make me feel full.
Last night my son called and told me there will be a solar eclipse Sunday morning. It will be visible in the southwestern states. We are trying to figure out how to get down to Medford in Oregon. It will also be visible in Northern California, Nevada, Northern Arizona, New Mexico and Northern Texas.
Many years ago I took my children to Goldendale, Washington to see a total solar eclipse. It was one of the more beautiful experiences we had. The colors in the waves of light were spectacular. We were above the Columbia River on a hill side with hundreds of other people. There was a stillness, little sound as the sun slid behind the moon. The ring of diamonds was stunning. Then the first rays of the sun came back and you could hear champagne bottles popping, cheers and celebration all around. That morning was so memorable my youngest son who was about three years old at the time, remembers it and speaks of it often. I hope if you are in the path of the eclipse you will take the time to see it.
