    So... I was outside at totality, I took pictures with the selfie side of my phone, like Tina I was just trying not to look at the sun, and wanted to! Didn't work. The pics just look like the sun. The birds never stopped singing, Egg was inside getting a snack when I walked back in. I tried wearing Corey's welders helmet to look at the sun, just gave me an instant headache from the weight. 🤷🏻 I dunno.

    Anyway - smelling like leather and sweat and dirt at the moment, but after two hours, I decided I like the bricks with the German schmear (thank you Barbara, I'll use that later with Corey... 😀). After I got all the mortar cleaned off around it, I was able to get all that detritus in the dumpster... then I took an hour to pull some siding off under the carport. I told Corey I would pull everything off that I could reach. Not as much as he probably thought, as I think he thinks I'm six feet tall.

    Later, y'all,

    My son is taking welding classes(taking the test for the union next month)
    He said he used his welding helmet to look at it- was just a partial eclipse here. I didn't notice any of it(we were out shopping)

    Forgot to get my check in info to Lanette today, but am happy to report that I am within .2 of a pound from where I was at the end of March, so headed in the right direction again!
    Very cloudy here today, so didn't notice the eclipse at all, we only had a partial anyway, so.... I do remember the one in 2017, it was kind of neat, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be running off somewhere to get a better view.

    Very high winds last night. There is a lot of heavy flooding in the local area from rivers and the very high tide. We are fine here. I'm going to leave going out until tomorrow! Damp and windy. John might pick up milk.

    I've just ordered a new valance sheet for our super king bed. I like the ones that have the bottom sheet joined onto the valance. The sheet goes over the mattress. John has worn through his side! We have had it 20 years!

    Love Heather UK xxxxxxxx
