1. Trifecta in the Sky
It's a skywatcher's paradise tonight with three major events to look out for. Now I'm not an astronomer so forgive me if my description is a bit basic, but here goes. First we have the full moon, which is call a snow moon because it's in February. Next up is the penumbral lunar eclipse. This is scheduled to occur at 6:43 pm central time (thank goodness because I won't have to haul my butt out of bed to see it). The penumbral lunar eclipse is more subtle than a total lunar eclipse, but we should still be able to see the moon appear slightly darker than usual. Then last but not least we have Comet 45P. Look to the east around 3 a.m. Saturday morning and watch for a bright blue-green "head" with a tail. Bottom line - look up tonight. You can see some amazing things!
2. New Words
Did you hear that the Merriam-Webster dictionary added over 1000 words to its' dictionary? Boy, that adds a lot of words we can now make in Scramble! Some of the new words are ~
Throw Shade - publicly criticize or express contempt for someone."if she was really so above it all, she wouldn't have to throw shade"
Binge Watching - the practice of watching multiple episodes of a television program in rapid succession, typically by means of DVDs or digital streaming. (Already knew the meaning of this word!)
Supercentenarian - a person who is 100 years old or older.
Seussian - of, relating to, or suggestive of the works of Dr. Seuss.
3. National Umbrella Day
Guess what day it is? It's National Umbrella Day! If you know me well, you know that sharing an umbrella is something I hate to do. You see, I'm short and many times if I share my umbrella the person I'm sharing with will hold it so high, I might as well not even be using the device! Anybody share this issue with me? Hope no one actually has to use one today, but Happy Umbrella Day!
Every morning before I roll out of bed I read my daily devotional from Daily Wisdom for Women. It amazes me how many times the message is just what I need to hear. The daily reading is short, sweet and only takes a couple of minutes to complete. It's such an inspirational way to start the day!
