Some of you have written wonderful words about Foxy.And other things too. Thank you so much.
He is from a pattern in a Homespun Magazine, and was designed by Anthea Christian. This time I printed the pattern pieces out, and pasted them onto thin card, cut very exactly on the lines, A lot easier than a pattern paper by itself. He has 3 friends in the wings, all in various stages of disarray!!! One is flying North very soon,another going south, and maybe one will keep Foxy #1 company.
The little purple torch at the back was the one I took outside early this morning,so I could see the dials if I wanted to change my camera settings. I did venture out at 2 a.m. !!! YES, the mad lady, but it was too cloudy for a good photo, but the crescent I saw was indeed red. Later, at about 6 a.m. fortified with a cup of coffee, and still in jamas and sheepskin slippers, wandered over the lawn. propped the camera on our wood box, then went to the street. A truck , a car, and a van all drove past, I was hoping in the semi- dark they might not see me. I used a bean bag I had made a while ago, a neighbours wooden fence paling, and managed to get a sort of decent shot or two.
This was from our front doorway, shining through our firewood trees.
Then I was out on the edge of the street!!!
Nothing spectacular at all,but I can at least say I did see the “Moon Trifecta” this morning.
Blue Ted will be here when US arrives at the 1st February. Hurry up, your northerners!!! I long to have the whole collection done.
And in case you wondered, I am back to proper coffee!! Hooray for that, but the Myoscan will not be until mid-February when a specialist is available to be present. No doubt a big back-log too.In the meantime I am waiting, and had another short visit to hospital very early Monday a.m. It is a trifle scary when angina pain lingers and does not subside with a sub-lingual spray repeated. The blood tests are negative, this time I really think the Dr was hoping for a positive Troponin test, so I could be admitted and sent off for something to be done.I am so grateful for the wonderful ambulance men, or ladies, one man ( single crew) this time, the E.D. staff, and then….. there are the other patients who have been admitted for one night, one lady moaned and complained about everything. I know she was ill, as we all are who are admitted to the “ Acute Assessment Unit” The other was a darling wee thing, so apologetic when she needed staff to come.I am so positive neither will read this.
Guess in all places we meet the grateful and the ungrateful. I hope I am one of the former.
Some places in New Zealand have had gale winds, huge rainfall, extreme damage to properties and buildings, we missed it all.After days of up to 33C, there will be a little sprinkle of snow in the far south.
