Night Life

I still live a life of begging time on my children's computers whenever I need the use of one. My computer - which broke, um, I don't even remember how long ago - is still broken.

So while my son is at work, I have stolen into his room to check email, etc., before I head off to bed. The room is dark, the window is open, and I can hear a chorus of frogs reaching me from out there, somewhere, in the darkness.

I like to go out at night and look up at the stars. The other night my son and husband and I snipped out to see if we could catch any of the Perseid meteor shower. We saw a few, quick, faint meteors, and then one bright one which streaked across the width of the sky.

And tonight there is a froggy concert.

A lot goes on around here when the sun goes down. I wonder who books the talent?

Sadly our cloudy skies block all chances of watching meteor showers! That's Britain for you!!!

Hi Kim!

It can be iffy here, too - but probably not as bad as over there : )

I love meteor showers - it's a thrill to spot one!

It's tough waiting for a turn at the computer. Right now it's mine that everyone is fighting over (I should say "sharing").

Hi adrienne!

We were lucky enough to catch the Perseids when we were backpacking up in the high Uinta wilderness one summer. Even the kids remember it.
