Howl at the Moon

*Update 9/4/2009 Apparently this is NOT the Harvest moon, it is The Corn, Fruit or Barley Moon. I was not aware of this, but The Domestic Witch did! Thanks to her and be sure to check out her great blog!

Side Note: Does anyone else get confused between Domestic Witch and THE Domestic Witch sometimes, or is it just me lol..?*

Hi everyone. I know it has been a couple of days, but I am in the process of recharging myself...it has been a pretty rough couple of months ( I lost an uncle and aunt, combined with two horrible illnesses myself, on top of quitting smoking...*this past Sunday made 2 months yay* ) and I have not felt like myself.

I am trying desperately to get back to "me".

One of my recent posts talked about my literary heroes, and the comments asked me to elaborate, and I just want you all to know that I will, soon, but it is a post I need to think about..it has to be worded carefully, because it is hard to explain just why it bothers me so much. Stay tuned for that, probably to be posted tomorrow sometime.

Tonight is the full moon, Harvest Moon I think it is called, and it is not raining for the first time in almost 2 weeks, and it shines brightly through the forest around the house...and it is so peaceful. I stood outside on the back steps and let her light wash over me, but then the palmetto bugs realized I was there, and the mosquitoes, and our feral pet opossum "Ozzie" was waiting at the edge of the yard for me to go away so he could eat the dinner scraps I feed him..or her..so I came back inside.

Soon the cold temps of late Fall and Winter will be here, and my spirit will be refreshed once more.

Not to mention I can stand outside and not be carried away by various varmints lol..

So stay tuned, there is more to come later, promise!!

I'm sorry about your Uncle and Aunt. I can relate with the smoking thing. I quit 4 years ago and it took me forever to get back to normal. I'm sorry you've been ill, I surely hope you're well now. I'll be sending you some positive energies for staying healthy!

YAY for the music of the moment! Ozzy rulezzzz.:)

I am sorry for your loss. But wanted to get you a "WAY TO GO!" on the quit smoking.

Beautiful layout on your blog.
