Mood: feelin' pretty good :)
Early this morning, I had an exciting experience--I got to watch the SpaceX rocket launch from my own front yard! I wish I'd had the foresight to film from the beginning, but on the other hand I wouldn't have accidentally gotten a really clear shot with the flash on (as opposed to some really awful shots with the flash off--the total opposite of what you'd expect! Noted for future pictures, lol). It was a really neat (and somewhat surreal) thing to watch and I'm really happy I got to see it. This shot is from 150 miles to the west of the Cape Canaveral launchpad!
I also saw a shooting star a couple minutes before launch! Sadly didn't get a pic of that, lol.
In other news, on Wednesday I got my first Fauci Ouchie™! That is to say, I got my first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. Aside from a really sore arm I haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary as far as side effects, but I imagine when I get the second shot I'll probably feel it more. I'm very glad to have started this process and look forward to having it over and done with.
Also I got a new friend as a sort of self-reward for getting my shot; this is Simone the Shrimp. She's a Squishmallow (I freakin love Squishmallows, they are absolutely as wonderfully squishy as they sound) and she's super cute and given my critter hobbies with the Sea Monkeys and such, seems very suitable to me, you know? :D
That's just about it, except for one more thing, which I'll leave you with: Me trying to put the clean sheets on my dang bed today with the dog absolutely refusing to let me without a fight. (Hover for captions; click for bigger images!)
Have a good [timezone]!
