Hi! Welcome! Come join me in the corner in the mustard yellow couch. What are you drinking today? Take a seat next to me and hopefully. A share a slice of chocolate cake. Don’t worry about that guy playing the guitar against the bookcase. He’s just setting the mood for the evening.
I’m out of sorts today as I had a late night last night watching the Super Harvest Blood Moon. Needless to say it was a long way to bedtime and I’m still counting the hours. Whilst Henry flops at my feet and licks the crumbs from our cake, I would tell you that I’m getting really excited about my Book Tuesday blog. The authors are coming in thick and fast as talent is in abundance. I’m thoroughly enjoying finding new writers to exhibit to the public and I hope you enjoy reading their fantastic stories.
Whilst we order our second cup let’s catch up on what you’ve been doing. Tell me what you plan to do with your special week under the super moon.
The time is ticking away and my little sprogs are extremely excited to see a blood moon. As the farmers in the days before lights and electricity brought in their crops by the light of the full moon closest to the autumn equinox, we commemorated their memory with our own fruit picking in the garden by early moonlight today. Our lovely pears snapped off easily and happily bounced into our basket.
We are planning on travelling to the forest nearby to find a high place where there is less light pollution to disturb our view. Unfortunately, the sprogs will not get a chance to see the transition as it should happen in the early hours of the morning. They are still determined to have a moonlit picnic though and I’m sure it will be spectacular as we are lucky enough to have a second super moon for this year. It will mean a late night for the smaller sprogs but this is an event that only happens once every eighteen years. The next time this will occur, all my fledglings will have left the nest.

Shoutout if you’re going to be looking out at the Super Harvest Blood Moon tonight and I will be waving out to you across the beautiful night sky, no matter where you are in the world.
Have a great night!
