Good Morning

I have hope in my heart that today will be a good day.

I had stayed up a little last night to watch the Supermoon, and to try to take some artful snaps. That, in itself was quite difficult, since I only have an iPhone 6 for a camera.Back in the day I owned a Pentax K1000 and took fabulous shots on that. 

 
That was the start from our back yard. Unfortunately the Ferry beckoned me in for a 7-3 shift today,so it was not long after that I had to hit the sack. I did manage to catch the eclipse and the red moon, which was neat.

What was even neater was our morning walk this morning.This is what we were treated to as we got down on the front porch. 

 
The girls and I started on our way and went down to see the bay.

  
  
Thanks to me not dragging along, the three amigas caught some awesome sights along the bay,to the point when we came back & I showed Jim the pictures, he asked where the moon went. I told him the morning walk was prime time while it was dark out.

   
 
So I am leaving you, gentle reader,with two of my night/morning after Supermoon shots. I hope you enjoy them.

Holiday away

It’s hard this year.

I pulled out my Mom’s ceramic Easter egg and a small crocheted easter egg she had. I couldn’t handle too much more out, because it’s the first Easter at the new home.We won’t be here for dinner, per se, because we’ll be with Jim’s Mom and family.

When Mom was around,we had Easter, Christmas and Thanksgiving every year at our home, and did what a lot of couples do: go to the other spouse’s family so everyone gets even time and you try not to slight anyone.

Mom is gone three years.

I haven’t had a Polish Easter in 3 years and for some reason, I am a little sad about it. I miss the traditions, although having the Polish parish in Manayunk get shut down by the Archdiocese doesn’t help either.I miss my brother and his family, I miss my Aunt and cousin: I am missing a lot.

My memory is still ok though, so I will have to share Easter with them in my prayers and in my mind and heart.

I am thankful that God still will let me do that.
