And now to this week's questions:
1. Did you watch the solar eclipse? Your thoughts?
I did not. I wish that I had at least watched it online, or gone outside and looked for shadows on the ground. By all accounts it was spectacular in totality, and fun to observe even not in totality. What a testimony to the fact that "The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament showeth His handiwork." (Psalm 19:1)
Sun Chips, Moon Pies, Starburst candies, a Blue Moon beer, a Sunkist orange, or a Milky Way candy bar...what's your favorite eclipse related snack on this list?
Of those on the list, probably a Milky Way candy bar. Does anyone remember Sky Bars? Every bar had four distinct sections and each one had a different filling: fudge, caramel, peanut, and vanilla nougat. Those candy bars were my very favorite as a teen.

You know, I really can't think of anything.
What's something you enjoy doing every 'once in a blue moon'?
3. Tell us about something in the realm of science that interests you.
I guess one thing would be wildflowers ... that would be botany, right?
How do you feed that interest?
My father-in-law kept a list of wildflowers he saw each year, and where he saw them, and what date. I keep a sort of mental list, but I really should do as he did and write it down. I also take pictures (not very good ones) of wildflowers I see, and research unfamiliar ones in a couple of good wildflower books I own.
4. What are a few things you remember about going back to school as a child?
Book covers -- remember when we were required to cover our books? I think that was more in high school, though. Gym suits -- any girls remember having to wear those? No wonder so many girls disliked phys ed! One nice thing I remember was new clothes. My mother always sewed a few new outfits of my choice, or I ordered some from Sears. Always so much fun when the fall catalog came out and we got a look at the new styles for back to school!

Not sure if this is meant to be a list of five words or a phrase. I'm choosing "The LORD is my shepherd." It's incredibly meaningful to realize that the God of the universe, the Creator of all things, the One who just orchestrated that solar eclipse, is my shepherd, caring for me, guiding me, directing and protecting me.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
I need to bring this post to a close as it's late and we're experiencing a thunderstorm.
