Topic: some days are pretty good
It has been over a week since I posted. A lot has happened. I entered the sonnet in the writing contest and got good reviews (one bad review). We had the poetry reading in the barn but I did not read. Since I didn't take the class, it would not have been appropriate. The participants are hoping I either take the class next session or at least visit, and they are having their next reading here July 14. I went in and bought the other sherbert colored blouse. So now I have three.
I am working on the next contest, to write a story mentioning the picture posted on the site, which is a night time shot of the MGM Grande Hotel in Las Vegas.
Found out today that the acid a friend used to enhance his septarian jasper (muratic) is an ingredient found in meth labs.
My computer died but a friend said he can put the hard drive in another machine and I can get by for a while.
Was late with the church newsletters (some of them) and I am trying to think back to what happened. I guess in part it was confusion....worried sick about my computer files, worried about not hearing from my penpal who was sick, worried about what will happen with the mammogram I cancelled. Will that doctor want me for a patient if I refuse to take one? I guess it will all work out. Also I perceived that saving money on postage was more important for the church than getting the newsletters out in a timely fashion. Sometimes I try to read between the lines and I miss.
And what about geology? I think perhaps I should purchase a more current book (although the old books are valuable, too). I am considering Minnesota's Geology by Richard W. Ojakangas, Charles L. Matsch sold on the Amazon site. It looks intriguing and is an affordable paperback with quite a few used copies available.
