Shine on Harvest Moon
Autumnal Equinox already?!?! My, how time flies.
We've had a couple weeks of glorious days here in the usually soggy Northlands. Daytime temps in the upper 50s (that's balmy for us) and a nice snap to the air come evening. After a summer soaking, we deserve to dry out a little before the weather returns to normal. Lucky for us, we've actually been able to see the bright, bulging moon up here. (The pic isn't mine, but snagged from Wikkipedia.)
School is in full swing, which means my dance card as a sub is filling up. I don't have anything scheduled for October yet, but I know something is coming. It always is. But that's good. As long as I can discipline myself to write in the evenings (not my favorite or more brain-active times) and weekends I should get the WIP done and some contest judging finished in a timely manner.
Oh, Sharron's visit was a hoot, and over all too soon. Did some hiking, trekked to the glacier (that is, drove. It's 40 miles away), wandered about in the delta flats and decided (a) it was waaaay too wet for our footwear, and (b) the potential for bears popping up from the alders scared the bejesus out of us. Sharron was around the morning DH bagged a good-sized cow moose, so she got to watch and participate in skinning and hanging. Messy, but man oh man, that moose tastes good!
We did go to Fish Prom, but were so busy yammering with others (Sharron, I haven't seen *him* since then : ) that we didn't get much in the way of photos. The outfits were great. Who knew there'd be so much paisley in our small town? We didn't stick around for the dancing because we had an early morning departure, but it was a fun night.
So as the weather gets cooler and damper, as our lives settle into routine, as I await word on this or that project, I wish you all a bountiful harvest of whatever you have sown.
