Newsletters! Labels! Walk! 1.31.22

I’m always refining my knowledge of EspaƱol.

Interesting. I’ve seen this at the MOMA in NYC.

What a genius.


I’m in the highest level in Duolingo and one of the best in the class.

Plus there’s this.


Gorgeous day.

Produced my newsletter.

Almost didn’t have enough envelopes.

Printed out the donor’s labels, put them on the envelopes and alphabetized the letters so we can put their tax donation letter in.

I had a good talk with my Mom. Always a blessing.

Kathy’s CPAP is dead. Talked to the company that sells them. They are completely sold out and back-ordered in the hundreds. That’s really bad news. No end in sight as to when Kathy will have a new machine. This is all because of the recall Phillips did with their CPAP machine.

Studying Avionics sectional maps. Using FAA practice test questions.

I have the Flight Radar app with Augmented Reality. I can point my phone towards the plane and it will show me what kind of plane, whose it is and where it’s coming from and going. Pretty cool!

I am on a major flight path in Class B airspace here in Atlanta. We are the busiest airport in the world.

I always thought that GPS meant connected to one satellite. That’s not true. Most of the time we are connected to a lot more. With a drone, it’s important to have at least twelve.

I’m slowly getting back into exercise. Lifted weights today and went for a 2.62 mile walk. Just getting out and doing it. As I was walking, I kept thinking I should be on my bike. That’s a good feeling to have. I haven’t had a bike ride in months. My body is finally healed up.

I wondered if the extreme cold killed this thrush.

From the ditch?

They’ve been working on this are a lot over that last few months. Keeps leaking.


Even slimy water can be beautiful.

I liked the patterns of this crack. What does it look like to you?

This is from a pile of sand on the side of the road. Tiny pieces of different minerals and material.

What’s this for?


The golden hour.
