Well here we are ladies, in the last bountiful month of the year.. this month is always bittersweet for me because as I fill my baskets to the brim I know it is the last for some time.
Last night was our first full moon of this month and there will be a second "blue moon" on the 31rst. The next one isn't until 2015! Dh and I sat and watched it come up through smokey pink clouds. Absolutely gorgeous. Crickets chirping, corn waving in the moonlight. How silly with happiness these things make me.
