Hello friends! I hope you enjoyed a positive weekend. I don’t know about you, but the weekend has gone by in a blink! I kept so busy. Hubby went fishing and that gave me a few “guilt free” hours on the computer. We had a wonderful barbecue dinner birthday celebration for our oldest granddaughter’s 18th birthday. She requested our barbecue ribs; you can find the recipe HERE. I chose this week’s theme based on today’s eclipse. People here in the US have Eclipse fever (not to be confused with boogie fever). Is it just me that thinks people have gone a little over the top? I don’t remember the last eclipse (yes I’m that old) being such a big deal. Don’t get me wrong it is a very interesting phenomenon. But, I’m not sure why there is such hullabaloo (that’s right, hullabaloo) over it.
From our home we will have 92% visibility. But, there is a 99% visibility in our neighboring state of Idaho. There has been a mass exodus to see the eclipse. Flashes of cabbage patch doll craziness from years ago come to mind. Oh and let’s not forget about Y2K mania as well. From start to finish the eclipse lasts nearly three hours. Please be aware of the safety measures so you are not one of the people who permanently damage their eyes. If you plan to view partially or in its totality please don’t risk injury. Use the approved glasses, telescopes, etc. You can find more details HERE.
Are you new to Monday Inspirations?No problem here’s the scoop. Monday inspirations has taken the place of Make It Monday. Still inspiring us in a zillion ways but with one very fun twist. I will select a theme, but when you share your posts you won’t know what theme I have selected. Aha a little mystery! Then I will share some of your wonderful posts. I will still be featuring a few other selected posts at the Thursday Favorite Things blog hop too. Just a reminder that all of the photos belong to their respective blogs unless otherwise indicated.
