I tried to capture the moon with my amazing 8 megapixel camera, the one on my Droid, but I was highly unsuccessful. So I just went back to the church, and I put together 3 2-page layouts for the family album. . .then I went home and went to sleep. . .because that's what you do after 6 hours of scrapbooking, especially if you are a woman in the middle of life, and you are getting home after midnight!
This morning, I tried to recapture that magical moondance feeling. . .but "the night's magic seems to whisper and hush," and morning sounds are often a little more harsh. . .the sounds of hungry kitties chasing one another around the bed, then pouncing with claws and teeth that elicit mews and growls from the partner cat. . .I tried to settle in with some knitting, to still my soul. . .
. . .but even my fingerless mitts were seeming less than magical. You know, on a normal wintry Saturday, I like to spend my day like a cat. Sometimes perched on the sofa, looking for something to happen. . .
. . .sometimes stretched out in the warmth of a sunny window, waiting for something to happen. . .
. . .sometimes snoozing, not really caring if anything happens. . .
But today, the day after the magical moon, 'neath the cover of February skies. . .with Old Man Winter starting to finally melt away. . .
. . .well, today I was itchy to get back to it. Back to the warmth of spring and summer sun. Back to the routine that was a walk every weekend in the park. I am such a baby in the cold weather, and I am soooo ready for winter to be over. Sweetie must have felt it too, because even though today's daytime high temp was scheduled to be 36 degrees F (!), Sweetie suggested a walk in the park. . . I won't lie, I balked at first. Then I bundled up and off we went. . .and look what I found:
Yep! The magic is still out there! Even though the moon isn't out, the sun is making up for it today! It was a cold walk, and I have yet to knit a single stitch so far today, but I feel full of magic and promise. I wonder if the moon will give us another "fantabulous night" tonight?
Either way, tonight I will count my blessings, and look forward to whatever comes next. . .oh, and I think I may knit a bit! Thanks for stopping by, and Knit in Good Health!
