Good morning, and Happy New Year to everyone. It's cold outside, but the sun is shining. Old man Winter is digging in his heels here in my little part of New England. Last night was very cold!! I went outside a little after midnight to try to get photos of the moon, and I thought my fingers were going to freeze and fall off. Brrrrr!
There were clouds and there was a halo surrounding the moon, so my photos did not have much detail in them. But there was some weird detail all around the upper left edge of the moon. Here are two different photos, both cropped to see the detail.
See the little dots and other odd little bumps? I'm thinking that they are just a dark part of the moon that the light was reflecting on. The bottom photo isn't very sharp because the halo was much heavier when I took the photo. All my photos had the same strange dots and bumps. Ah well, this is the first moon of the new year 2015.
Did anyone stay awake late enough to celebrate the new year, or at least watch the festivities and fireworks on TV? Pogo and I did. Well, at least I did. Pogo tried. He got all comfy on his little sofa and then dozed off.
After all the excitement was over, Pogo woke up, took a short potty break, asked for and received a snack, and then crawled back onto his little sofa and drifted back to dreamland.
I took these photos of Pogo with my phone so that I wouldn't wake him up. I have to tell you folks, just watching him makes my eyes happy. After taking these photos, I turned out the light and drifted off myself.
Today is going to be a rather quiet day for lots of folks. I know I'm going to be looking for a little nap this afternoon after I clean off another shelf in the pantry. I'm getting the kitchen project done one shelf and cardboard box at a time.
Well, that's my news for this morning. I wish you all a great New Year. May you be blessed with much happiness, good health and prosperity. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a beautiful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
