I stayed up late last night to watch the lunar eclipse. I was a bit upset at first because I had missed the first half of it (everything I read said things would get started around 11:30pm, I stuck my head out around 11:14pm and the moon was half gone). It was wild to watch the moon disappear and then turn a deep red. I watched until a little after midnight. I had intended to go to bed not long after I got home but a coworker asked if I was going to watch the eclipse. It didn’t look too promising when I got out last night. Everything was clouded over. But after I got home I noticed that I could see the moonrise through the clouds. The clouds never did completely disappear but I was able to watch everything through the thin veil of clouds. I am glad I stayed up to watch.
Yesterday was busier than intended. I did another chunk of garden before work. After my shower I was chillin’ in front of the tv when Stella starts barking. We have company! Two of our dear friends stopped by to give us our wedding invitation. Since we hadn’t chatted in a while we all stood around and did so. By the time they left I had to hurry up and get dressed. I was almost late but that’s ok. I made it. Work was steady if not downright busy. I spent time in the deli helping out as well as hopping on a register to ring and helping at the gas window and courtesy counter.
Today will be going to the vet with Stella and then taking my friend to the VA hospital for his appointment this afternoon. I might try to garden after I get home. It won’t be hot so that will help. I do need to try out the tiller. I have everything I need to get going with it. But the tiller is for the back gardens. I am pushing through my side and front gardens. We’ll see. The thing is I will need to dig out a few things before I can use the tiller. So it comes down to what I want to accomplish today. I need to squeeze in time on my novel as I didn’t get any yesterday. The annoying part is I woke up at 5:30am and started peeking at the clock. I didn’t want my alarm to wake Chris. He has been working so hard and he needs his sleep. My mind started working around 6:15am. Around 6:23am I tried to drift off but my mind kept going so I gave up and got out of bed.
I think I will wrap this up and see about getting Stella out of bed so we can go to the vet. Thanks for reading and stay safe! Oh and did anyone else see the eclipse? What did you think?

We missed the eclipse last night here because it was still too cloudy.

Nuts! I thought I was going to miss it too but I am glad the clouds thinned out.
