I hope your week is going well. I actually got to peg out laundry yesterday! It was a beautiful, if chilly, sunny day outside with a good "drying wind." Whether it was all likely to dry or not wasn't really important I was just so happy to be able to peg it all out. There's simply no substitute for the gorgeous scent of bedding and towels pegged outside to dry, now if someone could just make a perfume of that scent I'd be a happy wee Rosie!
In fact all of my towels did dry, as did most of my laundry, with the exception of our duvet cover which is made from a very thick, brushed cotton and two of our furbaby Jade's soft fleecey blankets, since they were the last to be pegged out and our sunshine is gone so early. Not a problem though, they were soon dried in the tumble dryer. Just being able to peg laundry out at all made me smile yesterday 😊
Another highlight of this week was, of course, the much reported appearance of the "super moon" on Monday night. Did you manage to see it honeys? I saw so many beautiful images on Twitter from around the world but I thought, even though they're not nearly so impressive, I'd share how this gorgeous, seldom seen occurrence looked over the West Coast of Scotland...
We won't see the moon pass this close to earth again until 25 November 2034 - not for another 18 years! Indeed it hasn't passed this close to us since 1948 so I was determined to at least try to catch a photo of it. Here are the best of the images I caught...
It certainly seemed brighter than normal and maybe a little larger but it didn't look anything like the images of the gigantic moon towering over buildings I was seeing on Twitter. Were people using their zoom buttons or was Scotland missing the full effects of this rare sighting I wonder honeys.
In fact, according to the BBC, the moon should have appeared around seven per cent larger and approximately fifteen per cent brighter.
An additional problem was the rapidly moving cloud coverage which constantly sought to obscure our view of the super moon. I stood at our back door though and kept snapping away..
Within a few short minutes though this happened...
I wonder what I'll be doing the next time it passes us so closely in 2034? I can't even imagine what I'll be doing next year much less in 18 years time but I hope I'll still have a camera snapping away trying to capture it :)
Did you see the super moon? Have you blogged your photos?or instagramed them? If so, do share a link in the comments section? I'd love to see them and promise to say hello if I visit. Thank you for dropping by to keep me company, till next time dear ones stay warm it's getting chilly and definitely starting to feel like winter outside. Huggles always xx
