Super Moon Again

A morning spent in the garden cutting down plants and raking leaves has left me a little sore but full of a feeling of accomplishment.  Especially since I also laid down 40 lbs of bone meal, and it may rain tomorrow.

This evening we went over to a friend's home to watch the UConn vs Florida State.  UConn won but nowhere as handily as they walked away with games last year.  Still it was fun to watch the game in the company of good people.

But as the title of this entry makes clear, this is really about the moon.  On our way to our friends, we passed the most perfect scene - the truly super moon in a gloriously clouded sky with a pond below.  It was so very beautiful . . .  Now, do I have a photo?  No.  Despite the fact that D is always willing to let me take pictures, there was a car behind us who was too close to allow us to stop safely.

Sometimes, things don't go the way we want.  That means that we find an alternative.  When we arrived at our destination, I did take a picture.  It was hurried, but better than nothing:

A bit out of focus, but the clouds were still great!


  1. I wished I had my camera with me last night. On my way to class that moon lead the way. And to think the last time it looked like that was close to my original birthday!
