Tuesday 14- I did my stretches and ran two miles.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 49 to 71 degrees, nice breeze, and humidity around 33 percent, mostly clear skies.
According to the National Weather Service: “Wednesday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 62. West wind between 7 and 13 mph, with gusts as high as 18 mph. Wednesday Night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 41. West wind around 8 mph.
I went back outside last night at 12:15am and watched the Moon set behind the mountains to the west with my binoculars; just love doing that! Then it was time for me to do some serious Geminid Meteor Shower watching. They seemed to come in bunches of five our more and I counted around 110 or more an hour! Lots of them green streamers zipping across the sky. Sometimes the big ones seemed to break and split apart as they fell; I’ve never seen that before. I got to sleep a little after 3am. What a dang good shower this turned out to be and the one time I didn't put in in the newspaper because I thought it wouldn't be that good because of the Moon being at first quarter.
After my exercising and taking care of a few things around the house I rode my electric bike over to Stoney’s to check on the place. Then I went on over to Roger Smith’s to visit for a short spell. He has his garden in the back and was showing me his new garden bed when he noticed that the turnips were ready to be pulled and gave me a couple of them.
I went for my evening walk just before the Sun went down.
I wrote my column for the Hi-Desert Star Newspaper and sent it in.
I did my stretches, practiced my guitar, wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.

 Sunday 13- I did my stretches and ran two miles.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 37 and 56 degrees, W winds 7-15 MPH , humidity around 37 percent, mostly clear skies with a few altostratus clouds drifting over once in a while.
According to the National Weather Service: “Monday: Sunny, with a high near 54. North northwest wind around 6 mph. Monday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 34. Light and variable wind. ” 
I mostly talked to Family and Friends throughout the day. I got a call from Stevie saying that Bob Seeley was out of the hospital and is now at home which is really good news!
I installed MS office and download all the major updates which took quite a while on dialup. As it was updating I made a trip over to Stoney’s to tell him the good news about Seeley being back home. We called Sherry from there to let her know because yesterday she was upset upon hearing that he was in the hospital. I had a slice of sweet potato pie before I left.
I got back just before the Sun had set so I didn’t go for my evening walk. I watched “60 Minutes” on CBS about; growing body parts, an interview with the President, and something about the TV show “The Office” that I wasn’t really interested in so I turned off the TV.
I did a little webwork, did my stretches, and then went outside to watch the Geminid Meteor Shower until 2am in the morning. I counted two to three meteors a minute with a few Earthgrazers thrown in! It was a mighty spectacular show! The sky was dark and clear making the shower the best I’ve seen all year.
I practiced my guitar; wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night; I’m very tired!
