received gifts

Enjoyed time with my sis and bro-in-law at my Mom's new house. A low key affair this year. I received a number of astronomy-themed items.

Mission to Mars booklet by TIME magazine

A TIME Magazine booklet called Mission to Mars from Mom. Can't wait to read this. I'm fascinated to read about humans leaving Earth.

crescent Moon tree ornament

My very nice neighbour gave me a gift bag before I departed. On the outside was a tree ornament.

Galaxy chocolate bar

Ha ha! She gave me a Galaxy chocolate bar. I know where she got it!

Meteor chocolate bars

Rhonda also gave me a Meteor chocolate bar. Don't know where she found that!

yum - hot chocolate with Baileys

She knows me. This will come in handy during cold backyard observing!

tiny red LEDs on a 3 metre string

Blinky lights! Blinky lights! Neat. Teenie tiny red LEDs on thin wires. Powered by a battery pack. Also will be handy during astronomy sessions. Great colour/hue.
