Blue Moon to Welcome August

Hi guys! It's the last day of July. Soon the August Blue Moon will be high in the night sky on the eve of the first day of August 2015. I am so determined to make this a beautiful memorable summer.

So far, so good.
My health is cooperating, a big improvement from two summers ago spent in the hospital, or last year with my hand in the brace. I am planning my time better, avoiding extremely hot or sunny mid-days at the beach and enjoying late afternoons instead. I am getting more rest, I am trying to eat well and have succumbed to using some vitamin supplements to round out my intake. Just a few basic vitamins has made a big difference.

Do I have the energy I had before this last illness? Well, no. But I'm doing well and having fun. Mo brings a smile to my face every minute.

Target is showing Back to School ads on tv and the LL Bean early Fall catalog came the other day---shorts and cashmere hoodies, yum. Just my style. I think I'll get the navy polka dot hoodie, and maybe...um...red? hoodie. Too bad it's 90* out instead of 50. But that's okay. I am planning my fall velvet fruits and a woolie table mat, to work on when I am caught up on Pokeberry. The seasons pass, no matter how much I try to ''seize each day".

I love this photo, even though it's blurry.
Maybe because ii is blurry.
I think it would make a wonderful large painting!
I love the colors and shapes...

I'm off now to walk down the boardwalk in the dark, to see the tiny toads and night birds and to enjoy this high summer night.
