I am afraid that I don’t have much to talk about this morning. It was a quiet day yesterday. I spent most of it drawing and working on the next projects that I will be making.

Keith is still sick and spent most of the day resting. That was a good thing, but I tried to be as quiet as I could so he would be able to sleep. He is not accustomed to sleeping during the day, but this cold has really hit him hard. I have kept my distance, and hope that I can fend off the germs enough so that I don’t get sick too. So far so good.

It was quite overcast here for most of the day, which was a shame because I understand that the moon was incredible last night. I would have loved to have seen it, but between Keith not feeling well and the cloud cover, I was not able to. This morning when I looked through Facebook there were several beautiful pictures of it. One of my friends from grammar school is in Hawaii visiting her daughter who is attending university there and posted some really pretty pictures.

Here is a shot of it over the city of Honolulu:

I am sorry to have missed seeing it, as even from the pictures it looks incredibly bright. Maybe next time.

Today I plan to get some cutting done if Keith is up and about. I am working on additional overlay sets for the calendar project. I have had requests for them and I think they will be nice so that people will be able to change their calendar toppers for special occasions.

As usual, by doing one project, it leads to other related ones. I have to learn to just go with the flow and implement these ideas as they come. I am thinking of some other related ideas too – some which involve painting and I think that in this time of not having my usual saw, it would be good to work on these too. I don’t want to get myself overloaded and not know which direction to go in next. I need to just work on one idea at a time.

So I will keep this short this morning and get to work. Hopefully I will have some new things to show tomorrow.

I wish you all a good day.

I’ve always said Mother Nature is “Beauty & the Beast”. This is just one of many of the “Beauty” parts of er. I don’t like the “Beast” side of er

I was all pumped up to see the moon last night, but we had heavy overcast. :(

I know! It was the same here! I guess the next ‘super moon’ will be in 2016. At least lots of people posted cool pictures. Maybe next time!
