November’s Mourning Moon

While summers are all about the sun and sunny winter days warm your soul, the moon is winter’s star. The longer winter nights light up the shining moon bathed by the sun more. It’s still there in the summer evenings if you look up, it’s just those evenings it doesn’t have that magical star power like it has in late autumn, early winter.

If I’m honest December’s Cold moonwas something. I think this has something to do with being the shortest daylight month. I’ll be sharing those photos next month! Just before sunset and during dusk as the sun’s so low in the sky, moonrise is lit up in a magical way. November’s Mourning moon was slowly Continue reading “November’s Mourning Moon”

Hello October

Happy Autumn Fall! Happy October!

The first of October is a very special day around here. It’s Diesel birthday!

15 years old! How did that happen?! We celebrated with hoomin Mama coming home early, hugs, new toy and saying how much of a good boy and a cutie he is all day. It was his first birthday without his big bruv and he’s doing okay being the only cat. In addition to his hyperthyroidism, he has some tummy issues and is now on the same steroids AJ was. And just like AJ on those steroids he’s peeing more and kicking litter everywhere afterwards. Bad mama forgot cat nip on his birthday. Well I didn’t, I got him a cat nip ball I’d thought he’d go crazy over. He wasn’t too fussed, however almost daily he has a swipe at it. Tom boy’s still got it. He’s still jumping up high, having mad five minutes even if they’re not as often as a few years ago. I’m convinced he thinks he’s 18 in cat years.

The theme around here this year’s been Continue reading “Hello October”

Autumn Winter Project Light

Winter’s here in the North Hemisphere! The sun’s low in the sky, the cold’s arrived. It’s only been a month since the winter solstice and already the days are noticeably longer. Longer than when they were a month leading up to the solstice. Which means spring’s in 2 months!

I love the longer brighter days as the sun starts to climb higher in the sky, however nothing beats the colours and crisp light of late autumn, early winter’s golden hour, sunsets and twilight. The sun’s so low in the sky molecules and small particles in the atmosphere change Continue reading “Autumn Winter Project Light”

Happy December!

Forgive my absence for a while. If you stop doing things daily even for few days those skipped days can turn into weeks, months, years. Things that shouldn’t have but did fell by the wayside recently.

The past few months have felt like a million things around the house have needed fixing or replacing. There’s been vets and physio/chiropractor visits, Continue reading “Suffolk, UK Travels”

Hello November

Happy November! 

I’m not gonna lie. The past few weeks have been a little busy and throw in lack of inspiration, I have no idea where to start explaining my recent absence.

I actually went out with a friend. On a Friday night. What?! We went to see Vance Joy on his Nation of Two world tour. If he did play live which I think he did he was amazing. He Continue reading “Hello November”
