Monday 11- I did my stretches and ran two miles; it felt good!
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 38 and 64 degrees, slight breeze, humidity around 36 percent, mostly sunny skies.
According to the National Weather Service: “Tuesday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 66. West wind at 8 mph becoming east. Tuesday Night: A 10 percent chance of rain after 4am. Partly cloudy, with a low around 42. West southwest wind between 11 and 13 mph.”
I heard that we may have some bad weather coming out our way on Wednesday and needed wood for the woodstove. So I fired up the Honda generator, got out the electric saw and cut up a wheelbarrow full of firewood from a pile of old wood I have in the backyard.
I did a few things needing done around the house and then went on my evening walk re-listening to the Astronomy Cast lecture: Ep. 152: Binary Stars. When I got back I practiced my guitar.
I went over to Stoney’s to see how he’s doing and also to collect my bag of groceries from the USDA Food Distribution that was held this morning.
I read aloud from the textbooks: “Astronomy Today and “The Cell: a Molecular Approach”.
6:20pm rolled around and it was time for me to be off to the Copper Mountain Mesa Board meeting. Board members Katherine Quinn, Steve and Mary Helen Tuttle, Annelies Kuiper, Rob Reese, and Ray Foyil discussed matters that keep our Community Center running while the audience consisting of Marie Morrison, Bill Treas and his wife Elizabeth, Chris Jonas, and I listened on. It was a good meeting and many items were resolved.
It was cold and I fired up the woodstove and read some more from the textbooks. For some reason I couldn’t get my feet warm, so I took the kettle from on top of the stove and poured hot water into a bucket and soaked my feet for a spell; it felt mighty good!
I did my stretches and lifted weights; practiced my guitar; wrote my column for the Newspaper and sent it in; wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.

 Monday 14- I did my stretches, ran a mile, lifted weights, and rode my bike- it was very cold!
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 34 and 57 degrees, NNW winds 7 MPH , humidity around 42 percent, clear skies.
According to the National Weather Service: “Tuesday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 57. Calm wind becoming southeast around 5 mph. Tuesday Night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 40. Calm wind.” 
I stayed inside doing computer maintenance on a few of my laptops. I did put up the bird feeder I bought a WalMart last week and the birds went crazy over it! Kind of made me feel good deep inside where there seemed to be a void that needed filled!
I went for a nice evening walk. I didn’t go on my usual route and it was a nice change for me.
Stoney picked me up at 6:30pm and we headed over to the community center for the Board meeting. Board members Mary Helen and Steve Tuttle, Katherine Quinn, Annelies Kuiper, and Rob Reese showed up. We talked about many things: what to do with the firehouse now that the county has left and gave us $3474.33 for what was owed us in back taxes that we paid for them on the property over the years, the budget, repair of a leak in the pool room, and members to be added to the Distinguish Member Plaque. Also we will be having our potluck on the 26th, but no Bingo on the 29th or Breakfast in January at the Center! Signup deadline for the Copperettes Christmas Dinner for needy families in our area is Dec. 22. Call Rob Reese to get a certificate at 362-4546. It was a very nice meeting and our first one on the new second Monday of the month schedule.
Stoney dropped me back off at home and I cooked up some potatoes and eggs for dinner. I read some of the astronomy textbook and then I did my stretches, lifted weights, and went for a night run. I watched “Castle” on ABC, it was a rerun but I watched it anyways. I practiced my guitar; wrote my column for the newspaper and sent it in; wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
