Moon Over Farview

It could be called an ordinary day.  A load of laundry, barn chores, a little housework.  Joel stopped by for a quick chat.  He's overseeing the grape harvest for a number of vineyards; this is his busiest time of year.  Having been given a particular ingredient, I was inspired to bake fourteen loaves of (shhh, it's a secret) for Christmas, summer heat notwithstanding.  A milk customer and her family picked up a week's supply for Lulu the Lamb.

All in all, a pretty satisfactory day, perhaps a little more productive than usual in this weather.  It was as I was coming back up from putting the critters to bed that I had one of those moments.  Porch lights welcoming and nearly full moon rising.  I know I rarely leave, but it's good to be home.

"By the Light...of the Silvery Moon..." My folks used to sing that, and later I enjoyed the movie of the same title with...Doris Day, Billy Gray, and Gordon McRae (just listed them because the rhyming names always make me chuckle). They also used to sing, "Shine on, Shine on Harvest Moon...Up in the Sky..." so I guess we have that beautiful moon covered, in song. Spectacular, wasn't it? I guess Joel's activities and the moon are right in sync.
