A long, long week is finally winding down. Although it will, literally, be several weeks before my husband’s leg is healed and life is fully back to normal for us, some degree of normalcy has been restored now that he is back home. Of course, returning to normalcy means that I no longer have an excuse for not doing things that I need to do.

For the moment, though, I’m going to revel in having a relatively normal weekend with nothing to do (other than the stuff I need to do, of course), and nowhere that I need to be.

And in a totally unrelated vein, as I relax a bit, and carve out some leisure time to enjoy, I leave with you with these words of Werner Heisenberg’s to contemplate….

“We have to remember that what we observe is not nature herself, but nature exposed to our method of questioning.”

This is as true of the rest of life as it is to scientific research.
