chasing the moon...

so, i set the alarm for 6am this morn   and i only went to bed at midnight   i wanted to chase the moon this morn to see if it was sitting on the horizon   so chase i did...but no moon   so i'm thinking it must do this randomly and not just in august   unless it's september   whenever   i'll check it out each month until i capture it   i'ts soooo beautiful   it's this HUGE ball setting   it's like stuff in the movies you see   so i'm determined to capture it on film   i'll get it one day...

in the meantime, i came back home and went back to sleep for a couple hours   interrupted but feel like i got a full night's sleep   now i'm debating the trail   gotta work today   not sure i desire to take the trail only to rush home for a quick shower and off to work   plus after doing it yesterday, i was plain tuckered out   so i'm going to really think about this before i do it  (it probably ain't going to happen today).....

so at the moment while enjoying my brew, i'm contemplating the newspaper    yesterday i took my friend Marsha out to brunch @ IHOP   had a buy one get one free coupon which made it easier for me to do   she usually treats   so anyways, the Albq Journal was having a special on their paper   well i decided i'd take it for 3 months   later when i got home i'm asking myself WHY?   i barely read the news on aol, why would i read it daily via the paper   so i'm contemplating calling them to cancel and get a refund of my money   there were a couple articles in the complimentary paper yesterday that caught my interest   plus i'm thinking with the elections coming up, it'd be good to read up on the political views   so maybe i'll keep it   sometimes i thinki should keep in touch with local news, BUT....i just stay away from it mostly because it's full of turmoil and controversy most the times    i'll decide soon   it arrives in 4-5days, plenty of time to think it out....right now, i'm headed for the shower    have a blessed day!

I'm with you on the paper; we subscribed because we recently moved to a new area, but I barely get it opened most days; thankfully it was $5.00 a month introductory special for 6 months; I'll probably cancel it before then

great shot!!

enjoy the weekend!

I think harvest moons are September or October if I remember correctly

 It is a lovely shot.  I have to figure out how to do night shots yet.  My new camera is a Canon Rebal XSI.   So much to learn.  Have a great day.

Did I tell you I lived in Clovis New Mexico for a few years?  It was our first base and while it was a small town for me I really enjoyed my time there.

Love the picture, it is another beauty.

I like the paper mostly just for the ritual of reading it with my coffee on the weekends

    In my world, local news means either Chicago or I'm writing it. I can't imagine that politics can be any easier anywhere else. I see the BS very close hand here in my town. It makes wonder how much worse National politics can be.
