A Moon Light Stroll
I try to pretend I am a Indian who has just left the sweat lodge and I am jumping into the icy creek. For my health you know.
The cotton woods make this lovely sound now and they shimmer in the light. When they get frozen though, it sounds like water spraying. The ground is frozen like I mentioned and last night it sounded like a water pipe had broke and water was spraying out in the back. After the water heater escapade of last week, the water hose on the back of the fridge broke and my kitchen got flooded this week. I am jumpy about broken water pipes right now.
I hated to do it but I went in and woke my sleeping, warm husband out of a sound sleep. I said, " I think there must be a broken water line in the pasture." He got up put on shoes and a coat and I did too. He took the flashlight and we traipsed outside. The air was cold and crisp and crystal clear. The moon was starting to set and you could see hundreds of crisp clear stars. The big dipper was over my head. The ground was frozen under my feet. We walked out to the back and because the moon was so bright and the light from it was reflecting off of the frost it was very bright. We looked and no water. Just the sound of the frozen leaves
I am so thankful today that there was no water. That even at night the sound of the wind in the trees is beautiful. I am so thankful that even at night there is beauty all around.
Thanks for stopping by today, I am glad the Mayans were wrong. I knew they were. They used a 360 day year calendar. I expect it will be a beautiful day.
Blessings to you all,
