Harvest Moon

I had a beautiful day yesterday. I talked to all of my loved ones and received so many happy birthday wishes from my friends. I couldn't have asked for a finer day. I thought dinner with my best friend was to be the end of my birthday gifts. Not so. When I left Charlie's at 10:13 last night I found this 'gift' waiting for me in the sky. Lovely!
A beautiful Harvest Moon. We watched for quite a few minutes marveling that the moon at times seemed to be in front of the clouds, which is impossible. I'm such a fan of the night sky that I felt as if this could have been put there just for me. Even better is that I was talking to F.O.S. on the drive home, and he and d-i-l were outside looking at the moon at the same time. How nice to be able to share it with them. Thank you, everyone, for a beautiful and touching birthday. It was everything I could have hoped for.


  1. i need baking soda to make all kinds of cookies and muffins and things i would be making if i had baking soda. in actuality, i found one bread recipe that calls for it and i can't find it at the grocery store. it's probably there somewhere, but not in a recognizable form.
    beyond that, my grandparents are dying to send another box and i had to come up with stuff for them to send.
    glad the moon was so pretty on your birthday :)

  2. We just caught a glimpse of our harvest moon tonight. It isn't visible from the house though so no photos. Yours is stunning.

  3. Hey - late Happy Birthday to you! Thanks for leaving me a comment - what a wonderful blog you have here! I'll be back! :)
