Beautiful but a Wee Bit Annoying


Puppy Cody had just finished her nightly business in the back yard, and I left hubby to bring her in while I went back to the house.  A few minutes later, hubby came in, exclaiming, “You just missed it!  There’s a huge orange moon out there.”

Say what?  An orange moon?

Well, I’m notorious for never having my camera at the right time and missing too many unique shots.  By gummy, this time I was going to get that photo!

So, I ran  out with camera in hand.

In my indoor shoes.

Forgetting that it’s been raining for weeks, and the back yard is a swamp.

My indoor shoes have now become outdoor shoes.

Good thing I just bought several more pair (hey, I learned long ago – if the shoe fits, buy several pairs in different colors).

But at least I got the photo:

Hope my misadventure has brought some joy to you.  It was fun, despite the mud.

I love to hear from my readers. You may comment on this post, comment on my Facebook or Twitter pages, or email me at

  1. Great moon shot!

    I also buy shoes in multiple colors because I know when I need them again, they won’t be there anymore. I only wish I’d bought two pair in black instead of one in black and the other in brown!

    Great picture, CM. I don’t buy different colors, but if I find a shoe I like, I buy multiples.

    You captured a gorgeous moon, CM! Congratulations on your quickness and talent. (And, hey, mud might wash off those shoes with a good wipe, too.)


    • Thanks, Mark. I’m sure it was the same moon over at your place. Had it not been for my husband pointing it out, I would have missed the whole thing. The mud did (mostly) rinse off the sneakers, but they’re still wet this morning.
