Delightful day off, doodling the day away with colored pencils and weaving a bit, while eyeing the presents I must not open before my birthday. Lucy enjoying the last sun rays for the day, rain is coming. I love the DK book about explorers, I discovered this guy this morning, Alexander Von Humboldt, a big influence on Charles Darwin, he is awesome, he explored the River Amazon, and traced back the river Orinoco to its source with the Amazon, was the first to propose that South America was once joined to Africa, argued that the intensive deforestation (1800) of rainforest could lead to climate problems, discovered that volcanoes lie along geological fault lines, found 60 000 plants unknown in Europe (doubling the number of known plants), formulated a law governing atmospheric disturbances and the Earth’s magnetism.
