Good morning. Well, so much for taking photos of the Blood Moon. I checked the sky at 5:30 a.m., and kept watch for a while, but there was just heavy cloud cover up there. Around 6 a.m. I saw a clearing patch of sky, so Pogo and I hopped into the car and headed downtown to a supermarket parking lot for a better view of the sky.
As you can see from the photos below, there was no moon. At least not in our area. There was, however, one shiny star up there twinkling away. We only stayed for about twenty minutes, but during that time we watched the dark clouds begin to move out. We may not have seen the Blood Moon, but we did get to watch the beginning of a gorgeous day.
Right now, it's only 7:30, and already the sky is clearing. There are bits of light blue and white clouds peeking through what's left of the dark clouds. Right now, the temperature is around 62F, and working its way up to the low 70's by early afternoon. Beginning tonight though, the cooler temps will be back.
Yesterday's excitement consisted of doing a couple loads of laundry. Groan, groan. It's pretty bad when doing the laundry can be called exciting. On the other hand, actually being able to do this is exciting (in a way).
I'm watching the Weather Channel, where they are showing all sorts of great photos that folks all around the country took of the moon. Some of these photos are just amazing. Ah well. We'll get another chance too see this moon next April. Hopefully, the skies won't be so cloudy.
Today I think I'll get a couple of holiday mailing boxes taped up, complete with address labels. I would like to mail some of these boxes out early and hope that the recipients would set them aside and not open them until it is time. However, some folks' fingers get very itchy when they see a package and they can't wait to open it. So, I'll just pile the boxes up in a corner of my bedroom for now.
I still have some holiday crocheting to finish up, hopefully by the end of this month. After that, well I'll just keep on crocheting. It keeps my hands nimble. And besides, I enjoy doing it.
Remember yesterday that I said I would hold off giving Pogo any more of his doggie food to see if that was what was making him sick? Well, before I could pick up this dish, he ate the rest of the food. And he kept it all down. Well, darn! So now I know it's not his food.
He had a very good night, and as soon as we got home from our photo shoot this morning, I gave him a dish of doggie food for breakfast and he ate all of it. He seems to be back to normal this morning, so maybe whatever bug he had has worked its way out of his system. Gosh, I surely hope so.
Some folks have been asking about Sunshine. Well, she's beginning to adjust to her new surroundings. Every day, Pogo and Sunshine get to spend a little while checking each other out. It will take a while for these two to become friends. Sunshine is beginning to feel more comfortable around Pogo, just not enough to become chummy yet. I'll try to get some new photos to share.
Well, that's about all the news for this morning. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a magnificent day.
Hugs, Edna B.
