Full Blue Moon

What a beautiful Full Moon tonight.  (not the picture above - I don't have a good night camera).  It is not actually blue but for the first time in awhile we had a nice clear sky where I live.

I wrote about Blue Moons in a post last year - located here.

This year it is a blue moon because there are 4 full moons between the Summer Solstice and the Fall Equinox (1 season).  The 3rd Moon if there are 4 moons in a season is a Blue Moon.

Lughnasadh or Lammas - 1st Harvest

Time goes so fast.  It is now Lughnasadh.  We celebrate together as we all work to bring in the harvest.  It is kind of like a work party and that is what is happening in my life right now.  I am working hard with my son to get himself organized and learn life skills so he can be successful in college.  I am proud of my daughter and working with her towards her first positive steps towards independence.  I am trying new things and seriously considering a 2nd job in the mental health field to help with our income.  I am soon going to start allergy shots as I have made peace with living where I am for awhile longer.  I still have a lot of work to do but I am really beginning to see things come to fruition.  This year has been full of ups and downs but we (my family) has stuck together and we are making progress on our goals.
