TToT96: The Wonders of this World

It seems I failed to give someone enough credit last week. My new phone is courtesy of my loving husband, who gave me his upgrade and then somehow still managed to get one for himself with his wizardly wooing skills.

The weather. Beautiful fall weather.

Several of you who got an odd text from me last weekend and took the time to help me make a decision. A decision that has yet to be made for sure, but you helped.

Clark's gravity challenge. It is working. Slowly, but working.

Lisa for making me brave. By accident maybe, but just the same.

Our National Building Museum membership is worth it so far. We saw a 3D printer in action this week. Wonderful and horrifying in equal measure.

Kisses from my babies.

A trip next week to the mountains. And a wedding!

These two and this place so close to my house.

  2. I am so jealous that you got to see a 3D printer!! I want to see one, though I am afraid that I will find it very disconcerting.
    Except for last Saturday, it has been some kickin' weather. Perfection, really.

    Which mountains? The same ones I was in over spring break? I know how much you love them.

    Good luck with that decision you're working on.

    1. Exactly. And horrifying because I worry about what it can create.

    1. But they are on their way to consignment now, Vanessa. Too tight. Now he's got some fab fireman ones.

  4. Wear the blue one. Lovely Fall picture of the kids. I'd really like to know a bit about a 3-D printer - I mean, what? how? Gravity challenge = progress.

    1. I think it's gonna be red. Couldn't make up my mind until I remembered red is half the price of blue. That did it.
      This 3D printer was making a little robot plastic man. It melted plastic cord and layered it over and over in super thin layers according to the directions from a computer. Astonishing!

  5. Your gonna tell us what the out come of that decision was right? I am still on either of the solid ones... I was looking at some photos of you from NJ and then the one on your linky... You have the nicest smile!

    1. Red. I'm returning the other two today. Decided based on cost. I'm sure you understand.
      YOU have the nicest smile!!!

  6. I may need to somehow join the gravity challenge, though I don't have any way of measuring, which may well preclude me. Boxing is too expensive for me to do any more, especially given my plans to save all my money for a return...

    I'm glad you made a decision and that Lisa made you brave. I hope you had a lovely time, and that you will have a gorgeous time this week with two little people and big branches and fall leaves and all the loveliness this time of year can offer. And YAY for your phone, but bigger yay for your husband and that I can picture all of you in your gorgeous home, and can still feel your hugs and the warmth of your friendship In Real :)

    1. Probably no room for a scale in your current budget, huh?
      So glad for your friendship in REAL too!!!

  8. Sounds as though it was exciting, Sarah. Haven't been to a wedding in a while!

  9. 3-D printers fascinate me. The concept is so weird, and the potential is so great. I think one of the wonderful things that comes from 3-D printers is the ability to make prosthetic limbs for growing children. Cost used to be prohibitive, but 3-D printers can inexpensively produce limbs.

    1. I like your more optimistic attitude towards them. And making prosthetic limbs is certainly wonderful! I worry too much about people making guns and bombs.

  10. I'm glad to hear someone else who thinks 3-D printers are a little horrifying. Plus, I can't wrap my brain around the whole concept.
    You live in such an awesome area, so close to DC and all it has to offer plus beautiful woodlands.
    Looking forward to seeing what you choose and a picture that someone else takes of you!

    1. It's that they can create weapons and other horrible things. I'll definitely send you a pic!

  11. At a dental appointment this year the dentist used a 3-D printer to make something he used to fix my tooth. Amazing! I didn't get to watch him make it though. I'm glad that tree didn't land on anything or anyone. That is a great photo of the kids walking on the path!

    1. That is AMAZING! You and Kristi (unsurprisingly) are more optimistic about what they have to offer. And thanks!

  12. If we could WALK to our favorite hiking spot, I would be absolutely in heaven. Heaven I tell you.
    It was quite by accident that I made you brave. But you telling me that prompted me to finally get my #BeReal post down (almost) so that's a mutual benefit there, no doubt. I actually backed off the all three numbers, BUT I sent Clark TWO of them today. Progress. Baby steps.
    Love the simplicity in this post and the comment that is causing me to remember I need to purge Zilla's closets.

  13. Is it weird I miss you? I love the pic of the kids and yay hubs for the phone. And for his whisky. And for you.
