The moon, the stars, and Ivy

I woke up late this morning, relatively. It was 5:30 and I would have preferred to wake earlier say 4:00 or 4:30, but I was awake. Over the years, I have learned to get up earlier and get a start on the day. Never the less, it gave me an opportunity to take Ivy for a short walk  in the crisp autumn air. The weather has turned cooler and we even had a mild frost yesterday morning. Though, I expect cooler and frostier mornings ahead.

One of the best parts of autumn is the cool nights caused by the clear cloudless night skies. Two weeks ago, on the night of the full moon, Jupiter was in plain sight in the early eastern sky. The moon has since passed through its cycle, yet Jupiter is still there. Last night when I walked Ivy, I reminded myself of the full moon and how I wanted to write about it and how I haven’t. It has been busy with school, family, and simply staying afloat. So, I am taking time this morning to write a brief post. As I walked Ivy this morning the sky was clear, dark, and the stars shone brightly. The moon was rising in the east as it made its monthly orbit around Earth. Jupiter was low in the western sky and the air was crisp, cool, and perfectly autumn. What a great way to start my day.  

Today is going to be a great day. Making the Days Count, one day at a time.
