Things Named Artemis

NASA just launched a rocket called Artemis to the moon. It has an empty crew capsule, will orbit the moon, return to Earth, and splashdown into the Pacific. There’s an article for you to read HERE.

I am also reading a book entitled Artemis by Andy Weir, (who also wrote The Martian, which became a movie.)

I have been pretty much unable to put the book down since I started it a few days ago.

Artemis is (was?) a Greek goddess. She was very affiliated with the moon, as you can see HERE.

(Not sure if the above image is Artemis or Diana. I guess Diana is the Roman version of Artemis)

Anyway, it’s my Thursday off. It started POURING rain about sunrise strong winds and driving rain. I don’t know what’s going on weatherwise. But it doesn’t matter, I’m just going to be reading my book.

Have a great day!

I Can Now Sit Down

It is 6:48. I got up at 4:55. I just now got to the point where my morning routine is done and I can finally sit down with my coffee. In 9 minutes, I have to leave for work. I have a pretty intensive morning routine. Feed dogs and cats, water plants. Walk dogs, exercise, shower shave and things like that.

its pretty good. It’s a nice morning this morning. Perfect temperature. Yesterday was better though, a little more breeze. This morning, the moon was half covered by clouds, all morning till it set. It was like the clouds didn’t move, for an hour.

Have a good Tuesday!

Lisa All Clear

We’ve been given the all clear from Tropical Storm Lisa. She’s expected to curve way south now.

I hope hurricane season is over now.

I went to bed early last night, told myself not to worry when I woke up super early. I woke up earlier than usual, but it was ok.

I dreamed about painting the inside of my house. (I’m still waiting for the money to catch up so I can do the outside). Then I started thinking about proactive spending versus reactive spending. Weirdness in the dream world.

have a great day!


Finally, it’s Friday. Today is Ashy’s vet day. I’m thinking I should leave her here and come pick her up before instead of taking her to work with me.

It was a thundery, lightning-y rainy night last night. It fits my mood this morning.

i am ready for the weekend!

Eight Billion

population depiction

Before the end of this year, the 8 billionth person will be born. 8 billion people alive on this earth.

i remember in grade school, one day the teacher told us the world hit 3 billion. The article where I got the image above mentions 4 billion.

I’ve heard opinions that the world is at its maximum population right now. Could be. Seems like things are getting bad quicker and quicker.

Anyway, i saw the picture above, thought it was cool and decided to post about it. I didn’t mean to turn it into a doom and gloom post.

Hurricane Ian tore thru Florida yesterday and last night, we’ll be hearing about that today. Tomorrow I report to be on an actual jury. After that, my jury duty should be over.

Have a good day!
