And here I was thinking maybe I was just living in the wrong country. Ha ha!
Tonight my husband and I (along with our friends) are headed up to
to be…tourists! I know, you’re thinking Detroit ?
But why NOT DETROIT ?
It’s close (about 4 hours away) and it’s a city we’ve never really visited (I
know, that’s because it’s Detroit
- I hear ya!). We’ll be attending a Tigers game on Saturday and hope to get a
tour of Ford Field (I think that’s what it’s called), where the Lions play.
Provided they offer tours on a holiday weekend. We’ll see. Detroit
Next year we’ll probably visit
(provided the Indians are in town -
they weren’t this year or we’d be going there). Do you see a baseball theme here? Yeah, we like to visit different ball fields. It's kind of our thing. Cleveland
Anyway, I’ll have my camera and hope to take lots of pictures. It’s also during the full moon, so hopefully the clouds cooperate and I can get my moon shot. The last couple of nights the moon has had a ring around it and no good clouds, but I’m checking every night. Never know what looks appealing. The moon doesn’t necessarily have to be FULL, although I would prefer it to be.
While we’re away, my daughter will be clearing off the DVR in the living room. I’m hoping both of our DVRs are empty by the end of the month so we can switch over to the whole house DVR plan (while they’re still on sale). The new plan has bigger hard-drives and makes it so you can watch the DVRs from either television. Oh, and we get a faster internet connection, too. But it’s a newer and bigger hard-drive that we’re interested in (ours keeps rebooting and it’s making us nervous). Plus, we like to record our shows in HD (yep, spoiled here) and these smaller DVRs just aren’t doing the trick. It’s not like we watch all that many shows, but when he teaches, the recordings pile up quickly.
I’m still trudging through the revisions on Book 5 (my alien story). So close to the end, but dang, so much has to change. It’s like writing the ending all over again (and I had a hard enough time the first time!). I hope I’ve gotten it all straight now. I think I will have to leave it to my beta readers to tell me. I’m too close to it right now to tell whether or not it works. But I do foresee finishing it in the next week. I hope. Maybe. Argh!
So, do you have any plans for the holiday weekend?
