Solar Eclipse

Today you will be seeing a total eclipse unless you are near the East coast. We will only see about 90% I think. This is a big deal for some people. I know people that are traveling to Indiana to get the best view of this celestial event. I will step away from my office and walk outside for a few minutes to witness the event.

The next time we will have a solar eclipse will be year 2044, so it’s possible I will see another one. Many people will not. 

People ask “Why is this such a big deal?”. I think it’s because this is one natural event that we can actually see. If you want to see it, make sure you have special glasses so that you do not ruin your eyes. 

Me and Nick are ready with our glasses. We had to try them out yesterday. You can not see a thing out of them except the sun. It’s actually weird how small the sun is when you look through these things. But anything created by God is amazing and today he will give us a little show.

Yip Yip

 I took a break from the big crocheting project I have been working on for church and decided to crochet something funny. 

How many of you grew up watching Sesame Street?

I do not remember watching sesame street when I was young. I was more of a Captain Kangaroo and muppets kid. I’m not sure why mom never turned the channel to Sesame Street. Maybe it was because we couldn’t get that channel. I don’t know.

I was a little older when I watched Sesame Street though I always knew who Big Bird, Ernie and Cookie Monster was. Then there were these little martians called “Yip Yip’s” they were another Sesame Street favorite. They were usually in a pair and would get started saying “yip yip” and couldn’t stop. 

I thought they were funny so I decided to crochet one to see if I could. 

The result was good. It made me laugh. I had a little fun with it then I took some photos and gave the yip yip to my sister. It can be used to hold a small plant or little trinkets. 

What shows did you watch as a child?
