It suppose to become wet and much cooler the next few nights. A warm fire helps to stay cozy in this late Autumn weather. Once the front passes, it will be a bit warmer again.
Kevin got the outdoor chores done, this morning: the Halloween decoration went back in the garage and the attic; the bushes around the house needed to be trimmed; the grass got mowed; and the quarterly bug spraying was done. The cats hung out in the backyard in the meantime. Joshua roamed around and was so eager to get into the attic. Kevin had to pull him out of there a few times. But Chewbacca rather jumped in the tree to get to the catio roof. There he just enjoyed the wind blowing through his fur, while he watched the world from above the ground. This time of the year, he really enjoys being outdoors. It’s not too hot and not too cold. Temperatures in the upper 60s to low 70s (20º – 22ºC) are perfect for him. He doesn’t mind the wind gusts, as long as he finds a good spot to relax.
Tonight I checked my decoration and lights, before the big day tomorrow. On Halloween, it suppose to rain all day. I don’t know, if we can go to Trick-or-Treat. But we have a Plan B, in case that part falls in the water. I will spend most of the day, carving pumpkins and cooking a good Vegetable Beef Soup. Who knows, maybe I get a little fire going in the fire place.
This morning, the sky was covered in clouds. And I had no luck seeing the Full Hunter’s Moon. Therefore, I’ll post photos of the October Full Moon from the year 2016. Btw, that Moon was a perigee Moon (Supermoon), two years ago.
Hunter’s Moon, Blood Moon, Sanguine Moon
The Hunter’s Moon is also the October Full Moon. The leaves fall from the trees and the fields stand empty after harvest. The forest’s animals have fattened up for the winter ahead. The thinning leaves and empty fields made this an easier time to hunt in preparation for the winter ahead.
The October full moon is about honoring that which has passed; the plants and the animals that gave their lives to sustain ours and our ancestors who brought us into being and helped shape our world. Cook old family recipes or retell old family stories in honor of your ancestors. (www.naturalsuburban.com)
