Some Days I Just Need To Let It Be

My mother has always said never wake a sleeping baby, and in my case, don’t wake your snoozing dog since it is the only time the house is quiet when you visit.  Even at this age, I never let Gabby be and she is soon running through the house barking.  I’ve discovered over the last few days that I should also just let the moon be.

The moon needs little help with its brilliant display, but somehow I thought the moon needed a little decoration and tried to capture it through the Christmas lights.

 I wasn’t defeated when the red lights failed and thought maybe the moon would prefer a little blue ambience.

While my attempts failed, I thought the Three Dog Bakery Christmas lights reflected nicely with the moon.

I know I am middle-aged now and have to adjust to many changes in society, but somehow I don’t think there will be a musician capable of replacing Frank Sinatra’s Fly Me To The Moon with a modern version of Drone Me To The Moon.

Lesson of the week where snoozing dogs and the moon are concerned – let it be!!

    1. Thank you and I’m going to blame the leafless trees and lack of snow for the fact that I keep trying to brighten up the wildlife and moon with Christmas lights.😁

    I’m guessing Gabby likes to visit the Three Dog Bakery? The light/moon shots are fun – I’ve never, ever managed even a half decent photograph of the moon…

    1. It was fun trying to photograph the moon through the lights and while I was hoping to capture how bright the sky was around the supermoon, I never managed to find the right settings. I will be able to try again twice next month. Gabby always enjoys a visit to the bakery and somehow always ends up sharing my sugar cookie from my favorite bakery down the road.🙂

    Hahaha excellent fun post. The moon is beautiful in it’s simplicity, but there’s nothing wrong in experimenting, I’ve done similar. I agree about Fly me to the Moon, you know you’re getting older when…

    1. Thank you and I am still surprised every time I see a drone flying down the road. I’m already looking forward to capturing the supermoons next month.🙂
