Not Too Smart

15 Nov

When we went to bed last night I mentioned to The Squire that my throat was a little scratchy.

I woke up this morning with a full-fledged, whiz-bang of a sore throat. My uvula is so swollen it chokes me when I lay flat on my back, and when I try to sleep on my side the blood flowing past my ears makes me feel as if I have my head underwater – swoosh, swish, swoosh, swish – and I feel as if my lungs aren’t working properly. I must have been tossing around like a rowboat on the high seas, instead of my usual is-she-dead-or-alive flat on my back position, because The Squire had decamped to the guest room at some point. Obviously, I was more soundly asleep than I realized, as I didn’t even know he was gone until the dog woke me at 6 AM.

From all the signs, going out to look at the moon the other night in my housecoat and bare feet wasn’t very wise of me.

Little Children, Come Out and Play…

…the moon is shining bright as day.

Last night, when the Super Moon came up, it was so large it looked as if it was going to roll right down our road and flatten everything in its path. By the time it rose to overhead, it really was “as bright as day”. Simply beautiful.

It’s just as well last night was lovely, as it has been cloudy all day long today. It looks as if it wants to rain, but at least the cloud cover is keeping all the warm air from blowing into the sky.

Habit is a wonderful thing.

The Squire and I were sitting in the living room last night, and I announced I was going to bed, placed my bookmark, and shut the book. The Squire took a pieces of paper and carefully laid it on top of his Nook.

And then roared with laughter!
