Natural Phenomena

To be clear, this is not a shot of the so-called super moon we experienced earlier this week.  

Although this was a recent moon; and I did think it was super.

(I love how the tree appears to be clasping the glowing orb.)

For whatever reason, I'm extremely sensitive to the full moon.  The night before Son was born 19 years ago, I remember pacing fretfully, and gazing longingly out my bedroom window at a very full moon. Son's birthday coincided once again with this week's super full moon.

Or full super moon.

Or moon.  Full of super.


The super moon earlier this week definitely had an impact on me--as in very difficult to get a decent night's sleep and crazier than usual things happening, particularly at work.

Tuesday night we had a torrential downpour and a severe thunderstorm that knocked out my wifi (leaving me unable to do my blog post.  I ate junk food and watched bad TV instead.).

Afterwards, the storm left behind a beautiful rainbow that lingered on the creek longer than usual.

Son and Daughter are out of town this weekend, so I am home alone faced with nothing but yard work and housework, none of which sound appealing.  In case I've not mentioned it recently, this will be the last weekend before Son goes away to college. He officially leaves Daughter and I in our mess of a nest.

Serenity now.

Have a wonderful weekend.

I think that moon is responsible for all kinds of craziness that occurred this week. Everyone is talking about what a bad week this was in the world. In hindsight, I think the moon had something to do with it. Even my cats have been acting uncharacteristically ornery. I blame the moon.

I missed the moon, but caught the rainbow. I wish we could be on vacation one more week!

Saw the moon, sort of. By the time it rose above the tree line I was asleep! Didn't have a rainbow either so thank you for sharing your pictures of them. I haven't been able to post for a while because a pop-up ad has been in the "please prove you're not a robot" box and I wasn't about to click on it. But have been reading all your posts and sending you happy thoughts.

Enjoy your weekend.

154My younger son got to spend 6 1/2 weeks in WA with his brother, sis-in-law, niece and nephew. They camped with the kids, toured Woodinville, Tacoma and hiked four hours on heavenly Mt. Rainier. (He returned home yesterday, along with my firstborn, on an afternoon flight.)I don't think my two sons have spent that much time together in 14 years. Firstborn goes back to WA on Tues., and I know how much my younger son is going to miss him. When sibs grow up so close, it can be tough when minutiae of life, and space, begin separating them.
Those shots of the moon are really unique...hope you can print those up one day !

p.s. do not know what the 154 is appearing at the start of my post. Be assured it is not a code for anything, lol.

any moon captured as beautifully as that one is a super moon
