I forgot about the eclipse and when I did get out there I had to return to the house a couple of times (tripod, flashlight) and hoped to get lucky with speed alone but the aperture setting needed adjustment (not auto) and my shots were all overexposed. I have good shots from previous years.

Another eBay item has sold, nickle and diming my PayPal account back to a robust state. I estimate about $100 a month in sales, enough to pay a bill or two and I use PayPal for all of my USPS mailing. It's easier that way.

Daffodil stalks are tall and there are a couple of buds swelling on those nearest the front of the house where they get protection from the wind and some radiant heat bounced from the stone wall.

I think the pledge drive is about finished on my local NPR station. I'm a sustaining member so I don't need to call in, and when you participate it sometimes makes the pledge drive less onerous, but this year it palls. Good thing I can stream other stations; Washington, D.C. and Boston are on a different pledge drive schedule.

eBay and editing today. It's still too cold outside for yard work. My no-spend January has lurched along so I'll extend it into February. When weather is cold it's easier to stay in and not spend locally, but we had nice weather last week and I discovered a couple of great sales. Nothing frivolous, but not entirely essential either. #GoodIntentions
