A Full Moon

Two posts in one day! That is a first and very unusual for me.  I'm blaming it on the moon which is 99.9(waxing gibbous) percent full tonight.  I'm blaming the strange  and sluggish feeling I had all day and really for most of this past week on the moon.

Scientists will vouch for me when I talk about the  strange effects the full moon has on some people.  Might I be one of those?  Some research has been done on this subject.  If I dared or cared to keep track of my feelings of undecidedness, the strong pull to create yet the desire to pull the covers over my head instead maybe there would actually be some correlation to the gravitational pull of the moon. 

Todays earlier post left you in the dark as to which I decided to spend this sunny, gorgeous day doing.  After my usual morning of feeding dogs, medicating dogs, showering, doing a quick post, washing a load of dirty cleaning rags, hosing off the deck of the thick pollen dusting we are experiencing here, washing a few windows...... and sitting on the deck trying to decide what to do..... I took a cat nap. 

Will I EVER get back to my work in the studio?

  1. Cathy ~
    It sounds like a perfect day! You got lots done and rewarded yourself with the nap.
    I worked in nursing home for 10 years and the full moon definitely had an effect on the Alzheimers residents.
    Pug hugs :)

  2. I think we all go through periods of manic creativity and then we have to pull back inside ourselves and let things simmer and percolate before we have our next big burst.
    Enjoy! I love napping!

  3. I would have taken a nap in the backyard.... especially after such an over-filled morning! I think the creativity comes back in the autumn...

  4. Great moon shot.
    You deserve a nap, you did plenty for one day.

    Beautiful Moon~ it gets my blood flowing fast~ I can't sleep~ I am restless~ not sluggish at all I am the opposite!
    Look at today for the eclipse!

  6. Creativity is a mystery and the muse is a fickle being! Times of inactivity are sometimes necessary...much like the chubbiness of a child just before a growth spurt. Uncomfortable...but then the rewards come!

  7. You accomplished more than I did today Cathy!! All I want to do is sleep. It is cold and rainy here, the perfect components for great napping! Nap on girl!!

  8. Cat naps are good for you. I'm a great believer in listening to your body. PS I would have voted for hooking over the garden.

  9. that picture on your sidebar of you with those 2 darling doggys.... they look like my Teddy...only a different color....i LOVE DOGS TOO !!!!!

    happy to stop by today for a visit, my friend
