5 Shots: Full Moon Rising

After school yesterday, we raced up to the plateau to get some fresh air and watch the full moon rise. The festivities included talks with my daughter, consuming hot dogs on a stick, smores with granddaughters, and sprinter Ruby doing loops around us. It was her first experience at our magical spot. She’s six months old and looks more like a dog now. Jim was dubbed Chanticleer after the rooster in that old animation film, Rockadoodle. His five females clucked (Ruby barked) around him and everyone was quite happy. Here are five shots of our outdoor living room.

  1. What a beautiful part of the country you live in. Thanks to your pictures, the part of your book set in AZ was easy to visualize.


    • I remember certain events I did when I was a Mom. Looking back, there’s a few things that made me proud of myself. Now that the cycle is repeating, I’m hoping our time on the plateau will bring warm thoughts to our grandchildren.

  2. Lovely scenes, lovely scenery. A stark contrast to my neck of the woods with storm Ciara howling outside and hailstone lashing the window.


    • It was a well-needed outing. I get so claustrophobic moving from car to school room to car to home. Repeat. By Friday, I’m dying to get out into the fresh air. Thanks for commenting, Bill.
