I Suppose I Did Not Need Brunch

I never made it out the door. First, I do not need to spend money for brunch and for happy hour.

I have not worked since July 20th, so I do not have a paycheck coming in to supplement my military compensation. I have felt the squeeze.

I have tried to do more reading and interacting, as well as writing a bit, but my computer seems to be lagging again this afternoon. It may have something to do with my service provider, as I keep getting kicked off from connection. It may have something to do with the wind, but I am not sure.

I do think I should probably head downstairs and make myself a bite to eat before getting dressed and leaving for the event tonight. I am not as excited to meet the people and have drinks, as I am for the Blood Moon and eclipse. I remember the days of yore when that would be switched.

Enjoy your evening, or day, wherever you are in this world!

The blood moon will be in the middle of the night here. If I have to get up to "go", I may see it.

I saw the first bit of the blood moon while finishing up last night's shift. It was amazing.

Hope you have a good time, I might get outside late enough to see it tonight

I am not so sure I will be able to see the "Blood Moon' too cloudy and expecting rain. I hope you have fun.
I think everyone is feeling the 'pinch' one way or another.

I will not see the blood moon or eclipse unless I have to get up in the middle of the night for some reason.

On another note, I've noticed that the internet seems to be more persnickety than usual. I wonder if the Red Chinese Army is flexing its cyber muscle while China's President is here.

I can understand your concern with trying to budget money with only one income coming in. Actually I have been doing the same since my teaching income of almost $2000 a month stopped when I retired last year.

I, too, have been breaking the habit of just ordering food. It is cheaper to make it yourself, but sometimes I can't resist goodies from outside!

I wasn't able to see the moon until after 9 PM, even though I started chasing it much earlier. We had clouds.

I chased it, too, and didn't see much before the full moon up high in the sky....but the it was clear and I could see the stars forever.

I didn't get to watch the Blood Moon, because it was overcast here. I was kind of sad about it.
