Do you really want to see the mess on my desk? Well, if you insist....
On the left are two postcards I am writing, and there is one I have received with lots of writing on it. On the right, on top of my colorful laptop, is a little book about Zentangling by Sandy Steen Bartholomew, which arrived in the post today. Shoshi is having some of her art published in one of Sandy's books (not this one). I'm looking forward to trying out several tangles, as we are going away this afternoon in our campervan for a few days. I will have plenty of time (I hope).
Panning to the right... there is a layout I am working on. Next to my coffee cup are some blackboard stickers I got yesterday. And in the bottom right corner is a box with postcards, as I was writing postcards when I took the photo. I have to finish writing them as they need to be posted this morning. The piece of paper next to the mouse is info about solar water heaters to put on the roof. We need to buy one next week.
Last night we went to the Calar Alta observatories not far from here. My daughter and grandson, who are coming over soon, want to watch the red moon (at the end of the month) through our little telescope from the top of the mountain. We thought we'd take the campervan up for that occasion, but we have now seen that it is much too steep and long for the 'old girl'. So it will be a car and a tent I suppose. (Note to self: buy tent on the way to the airport...)
There are five observatories plus laboratories and residential buildings etc. Quite a complex!
There is a modern sundial outside one of them. As we have summer time it is one hour 'out'. It was 7pm when we were there.
And the view was stunning!
The altitude is 2100m or 7000ft. I thought it would be cold and had brought my cardigan, but i didn't really need it. The weather was glorious.
Hope you enjoyed another little glimpse of my particular corner of Spain. And if you were wondering what all this desk peeking is all about, go to Julia's Stamping Ground and all will be explained.
Have a fantastic week everyone,
