It's Eclipse Day!

So, we are nowhere near the total eclipse, but I didn't care.  I ordered the package of genuine eclipse glasses months ago, and we all wandered in and out to watch it.  I even took a couple of great blob pictures with my new, spiffy cell phone (yes, it's sad, but I can no longer say that my phone doesn't take pictures...I still claim it does nothing else).  Of course, the phone wore the eclipse glasses when it took a turn looking at the sky.





It was a little cloudy here, but that's OK. I'm just happy that I got to enjoy it with people I love.  And I'm going to make an eclipse cake tonight to celebrate!

Happy Monday, everyone!

Because I'm cheap, we had to improvise but we had fun doing it.

Fun! We just got home from our trip in time to view the eclipse. Chad and Chase built a box to view it from since we didn't get glasses in time. We didn't have totality here in Portland but it got pretty dark.

I tried using the shade from the leaves, but it didn't work well, maybe because we only had a 60% eclipse. Or be ause I wasn't looking at them righ LOL

We were at 99.7% totality. It was amazing. Watching it get dark and then the stars coming out and the crickets chirping!

We were even further away than you and we also had total cloud !!!!! Not very interesting for us I am sorry to say. Sounds like you all had fun anyway. Nigel also has a new phone LOL he has still not mastered a photo, or much else for that matter!! Have a good week Diane
