The property was rather muddy from all the rain the night before, but it was sunny and warming up by the time I got there. Today I found out that the house across the street was owned by my grandmother's grandparents - I had no idea! There are still a few cows grazing on that land. (The brown and white fuzzy kind of cows!) It is a nice area and I caught myself imagining what it would be like if I were to bid on the property and settle down there myself. At the moment, though, I have college loans and a wide future ahead, so I am in no rush to find my own place. It is nice to be home, too!
After the sale on Saturday afternoon, I finally got confirmation on a question with work, so I could start my 10 hours for the week (or weekend, rather). Somehow, in between the sale, church, and a visit with my grandparents, the 10 hours of work got finished! My eyes are pretty tired. They will have tomorrow to rest, though.
I plan to take tomorrow off from work and spend some time on ham radio stuff. I'll have my second meeting Tuesday. It's pretty exciting, since I knew barely anything at my first meeting last month. Since then, I've read the manual twice and written notes on all the chapters (except the last one). I just need to review the questions and I should be ready to take on that exam! When I attend my third meeting in April, I will (hopefully!) be licensed. How exciting! I can't wait to see everyone and get some tips on things. Once I get the license and then the equipment (a transceiver + antenna + antenna tuner + power supply), I will be the owner and control operator of my very own amateur radio station - cool! :) Once I get rights to get on the air, I will be able to tune into Morse code exercises and practice up on cw. Never know when it might come in handy.
