Late Harvest

Took Kyle to Sachem East early this morning in thick fog so he could take the PSAT.

Decided to go for a run, and after about a mile, started to loosen up a little, and with no real pain kept going all the way into Sayville.  By the time I got back home, I logged over 9 miles.

Was back up at the school waiting for Kyle at around 11am.  I finally txt him at 1120 as almost all the students have been picked up already.  Turns out his girl friends mom picked them up.

This day in history "The Orionid meteor shower peaks tonight, so wake the kids for a teachable moment of wonder – whether you can answer their questions or not, they’ll remember these fragments of Halley’s comet when they see that comet come around again in 2061."

We will be going out soon to peer up into the night sky.  A clear cool night in the northeast, and if I can stay awake long enough, hope to see at least a handful of shooting stars.  Back in August, Luke and I spotted half a dozen or so before the mosquito chased us back into the house.

No harvest moon tonight, so today we went to check the fig trees.  To our surprise, there was a dozen or so ripe figs hanging on after lasts weeks frost.  Most of the leaves now on the ground.  This late harvest is a bonus and the difficult white fig tree has a couple that might actually ripen.

Shrimp scampi for dinner at Luke's request.  A home made pumpkin pie for dessert.

Will let you know tomorrow if we spot any meteors streaking across the sky.

Hey now you're an All Star get your game on, go play
Hey now you're a Rock Star get the show on get paid
And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold
