For photrablogger’s Mundane Monday #127.

I left San Antonio on Sunday. I was reading and writing at the hotel, inside and out, and spotted this small resident. She was hanging out on the Riverwalk side of the hotel and was quite cooperative for photographs.

Prayers for a friend on Puerto Rico and for all the people and creatures there and in the paths of the other hurricanes and storms.

bad eclipse stealthie

Ok, I am a total fail on eclipse pictures.

I did no preparation, no reading and failed! I was clueless! Go ahead and laugh at me! But many thanks to my 10 am patient, because all of us were excited and ran outside to see if we could see the eclipse. I did not have the right sort of filter for my phone. I did make a pinhole in paper and took the bad picture below… we could see the eclipse on a piece of paper held behind the pinhole paper. I remembered those instructions from when I was a kid!

I did not take off because I just can’t afford any more time off than I’ve taken – run my own small business, dontcha know – and I leave for a week of CME in September. CME stands for Continuing Medical Education and I do a minimum of 50 hours a year.

We had fun anyway… and I want to go to the next eclipse…. well, the next one that is somewhere and somewhen I can afford.

bad pic

Terrible, huh? And I am happy anyhow!

I hope you find some joy in your day, somewhere….

Another entry for Mundane Monday #118, which isn’t up yet. I will add the link when it is. This is a stealthie taken with my cell phone. I liked the scatter and caught it….

Addendum: ok, #118 is NEXT week. THIS week is Mundane Monday #117. But anyhow, look at trablogger’s travel photos by clicking the first link….
