How are you all? I know I’ve been missing in action, but I do have to tell you what else has been “missing in action”. My digital camera! I believe I left it at my mom’s house. To make matters worse, she is having a house sale of items next Saturday, so I have to go a bit early and see if I can rescue my camera, where ever it may be. I always like a little challenge and finding it may be quite interesting. I’m not that concerned though. I know that sounds horrible, but I’ve got my little vintage Minolta hanging around my neck as it should be. Even if I did lose my digital camera, I wouldn’t care. I prefer my Olympus digital which took better pictures and was much slimmer which allowed me to put it in my back pocket of my jeans. It just makes posting pictures longer because I have to get the film developed then upload it from the CD to my laptop. I’ve already started using the film in my Minolta today, so I can get on the ball of uploading those once they are developed.
This weekend has been fun filled and relaxing. Usually my weekends include doing massive documenting regarding my clients, researching things online and planning for the week ahead. I had to do a report on 27 of former and current clients and was able to do it in an hour, plus hand in other information. I’m pretty good with deadlines, even though it may come down to crunch time, I will deliver. So, in saying that, I was able to chill out with no stress or worries. I’m ahead in where I should be at work and it’s a good feeling. I have more deadlines, but they are simple. Adventure Boy and I watched “Atlas Shrugged I” Friday night to understand “Atlas Shrugged II” Saturday night when we went to the movies. Adventure Boy can now explain to anyone what 10-289 means and the Fair Share Law. My boy can discuss trance music, politics, movies, games, tv, National Geographic and science to name a few and is learning to say “thank you” in 9 different languages (just like his mommy!). Go see the movie, it’s great! The first few minutes of the movie my adrenaline was already running! Anyways, I continue to do my favorite hot chocolate drink. I thought I had uploaded the pictures I wanted regarding how to make it, but they are still in my missing in action camera! Perhaps, my Minolta camera shall come to the rescue? It will take longer to upload though. Hm. Things to think about.
So, I heard someone broke the sound barrier today? Whenever I hear those two words, sound barrier, my ears perk up. I’ve always connected the sound barrier with one of my heroes, Chuck Yeager! Who is Chuck Yeager? Well, he was a test pilot who was the first person to break the sound barrier in 1947. One of my all time favorite movies is “The Right Stuff” that had Sam Shepard playing Chuck Yeager. The movie shows what it was like for Chuck when he broke the sound barrier in 1947. This movie is dear to my heart because it also includes the lives and events surrounding the astronauts.
So, Felix Baumgartner did an amazing feat today! I was out shopping when I got an “alert” on my phone saying he was about to jump. I was not able to watch it live like many fortunate people. The same thing happened when the man walked on a tightrope across to Canada. I missed that too! So, I had to watch it on YouTube. In case you missed it, I have it below for you to watch. Would you do this? I was holding my breath just watching the YouTube version, I can’t imagine what his family was feeling watching him free fall. Well, at least this was just not just an epic jump, but he was also working closely with scientists to help develop better suits for future astronauts. (?)
Congratulations Felix in your amazing feat today! You made history!
