Not Quite the Age of Aquarius

I tried to find Jupiter aligning with Venus tonight, and that’s when it started. The words of that 60’s song started going through my hair:

When the moon is in the seventh house
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars

But it was all wrong, because it isn’t Mars, it is Venus!  That must be why there is no peace and love, huh?  Anyway, too many clouds to see it tonight, so we’ll try again tomorrow night.

In other more earthly news, today Rachel and I cleaned the vertical blinds that cover our sliding glass door.  I expect that is the first time that has happened since they were installed.  We took down each fin, vacuumed and spot cleaned all the bugs off them.  They really don’t look any cleaner, but in my head I know they must be.  Do this reminded me of Betty, RIP.  Whenever she came to visit us she would take it upon herself to improve our house in one way or another, and these blinds were a gift from her.


And for today’s nature photos, here is some shelf fungus from the nature center and a red-eyed toad from the front yard.
