December’s Cold Moon

December’s Cold moon’s always magical. The days are shorter, the sun sits lower in the sky lightening up the moon something spellbinding. I don’t think any other month the moon is so visible in sky. The moon has a glow that no other month can match.

This is a hard post to write. Not because of the moon but because leading up the 18th December 2019 my photos are filled with Mr D the cat. Lots of tears coming across them. I’ve never shared here on before 2 weeks last year before his brother Mr AJ said his last see you later, I dreamt about tornadoes outside my window. So many tornadoes. Looking up what tornadoes in dreams mean and the colour they meant a death was soon. I also dreamt of floods or rather my apartment outside being underwater while the apartment was airtight and the washing outside survived. A few weeks before Mr D said his last see you later I kept seeing a lot of jackdaws at the zoo. It’s not like I’ve never seen or heard them there before. This time I wanted to be sure what bird they were if they were jackdaws from the zoo’s resident wild bird list. As I kept seeing so many I looked up their meaning. You guessed it, some cultures see them as a sign of a death soon. Now I think nothing of them as I hear them all the time there. No message there! And lets not mention a dark presence I felt in the corner ceiling one evening before D went. I think that was more I knew what was happening with my mind playing tricks. All I know is I miss those 2 little boys.

Weekend Friday Favourites

Happy December! 

Happy Thanksgiving to my USA readers!

I can’t believe we’re in the last month of 2019! I know you’ve probably heard that a 100 times already, apologies. I can’t believe in just over a month is a new calendar year and a new decade at that. Next year is a big number year for me and I’m ignoring that number! But I’m not ignoring this week’s Weekend Friday Favourites, things that have made me smile or caught my eye this week. It’s a short one however please share in the comments below things that have been making you smile or caught your eye this week.

November’s waning Frost Moon at Dawn

Once a year I’m knocked out for 24hrs with a bug of some sort. Once a year my body’s nope, shut down mode and I’m out of it. I thought I got away with it this year as my last KO was February last year. I don’t know what happened. Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

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”

Chasing Light. Pink Sky At Night

No Weekend Friday Favourites this week. If I’ve only posted once during the week I feel it’s a bit OTT to go look at what I found, look at what made me smile! This week’s been a little crazy, vets, all the Christmas wrapping, cards and Post Office in one day (I wasn’t kidding when I said I leave things to the last minute) and pressing snooze one to many times causing a knock on effect of being busy not productive. However being busy, running late sometimes means you catch an amazing sunset or reverse sunset as I did cycling Monday. So I’ll leave you a few photos chasing light and surfers.

I’m always in awe how the winter light refracts through the atmosphere resulting in sunsets that light up the sky. I’m Continue reading “Chasing Light. Pink Sky At Night”
