Life is full of hits and misses, don’t you agree? I had my fair share of both this week as far as my goals were concerned.
This week was one where I peredinated to the nth degree! And all my posts for the week were written over the period of a couple of days as I tried to catch up (still am!) for the UBC and commenting on posts for dropped links as well as, let us just say, more….. But here I am on Monday, finishing up my Sunday Scribblings post, so almost there!
Speaking of Sunday, the weather here was a wash(literally) and the Super Wolf Blood Moon – invisible for the duration of the eclipse. I am guessing by some photos on Facebook that there were instances where we could catch glimmers but I missed those:-(. So I totally missed the total lunar eclipse -you can just see a hint of a shadow on the upper right in the first photo and then barely 10 minutes later, that was gone too. No changes done to the photos at all except cropping them a bit and adding my blog name.
