Red Moon ~ Lunar Eclipse
Thanks to my older brother, I was able to get photos of the moon this morning. Did you know today (Oct. 8, 2014) it would be red and there would be a total lunar eclipse?
I had the kids go out and take a look. Some days the sun is up just as they get on the school bus and pull out. Very neat stuff anyway, and wanted to share.
That's about all I have to blog about today that is interesting. Cleaning house is not interesting unless you find something you forgot you had, right?
I almost did not get to blog today. I had an episode with the keyboard, and putting new batteries in, did not work. We are up and running, as you can see.
It rained all day yesterday. Again. I went out to put my chickens back in the coop in the evening, and they were so happy catching worms, they didn't want to go back in yet, ha ha! I had to trick 'em with a treat, to put them away for the night.
It's more cleaning today, and I have to admit, I feel lost without my zoom-zoom, up at the crack of dawn, canning all day routine. I think I'll have to can some jelly just to get my "fix" this week. I'm trying to get used to the new change of chores, but the rain kept us from wood splitting. Most of my list required going outdoors too.
This is the season where I do a lot of baking too. The family has gobbled down the banana bread, and they are down to the last two granola bars already. I may need to flip through the cookbook and see what else I can make to supplement lunch packings.
Today I am thankful for:
~ a working keyboard
~ skype (keeping in touch with the kids)
~ my camera
~ my family, extended family, parents
~ my Bible
~ God's Love
~ pen and paper
~ warm slippers
~ our chickens and the eggs they provide
~ rain, so I can pull those pesky weeds and dead plants
