Iceland’s Volcano

Planes have been grounded all over Europe and the United States for days because of this volcanic eruption in Iceland. I happened across this photo today in one of my news feeds and fell in love with it. You can see the actual web page here: Astronomy Picture of the Day This is an amazing web site. I had no idea.

In other news I got to hear the sonic boom from our space shuttle re-entering the Earth’s Atmosphere today. We all went outside to try and catch a glimpse, but no luck. Still, that was really cool. The last time I saw a space shuttle of any kind was back in the 80’s when it blew up. This was a nice second chance to see something great. I’m thankful that this one landed back home without harm.

Hope ya’ll are having a great Tuesday. I know I’m not blogging much at the moment. Truth be told, I’m really not feeling well. The new medication the doctors have me on to shrink my cookie monster of a fibroid are causing a great deal of pain and other nasty symptoms. This is only temporary and will be resolved in due time. I see the specialist again on the 28th and should not only get the results of my biopsy, but also set a date for surgery. I cannot wait for this bad boy to be removed from my body.

Have a wonderful day ya’ll.
