I Can't Sleep



It isn't unusual for me to have insomnia when it's a full moon.

I have tried, but sleep just isn't coming tonight. And I just keep having to step outside to see that full moon and that bright Jupiter sparkling beneath! That is just so neat!!

That was the best I could do with my camera. In that first one, you can actually see a planet shape.

Okay, so fall is here. Officially today it got up to 99°F in our area, and this was the 81st day of 90° or higher temps for the Louisville/Southern Indiana area. We broke a record set back in the 50s, I believe the news report said. But showers are moving in over the weekend and hanging around for much of next week, and the temps are going to be lower. I certainly don't want cold weather to take over, and I don't really want a lot of rain either, but it would be nice to have fall temps now that fall is officially here.

I have insomnia- full moon or not, often. I hope you've gotten some sleep since. I love the change of the seasons. Not profound, but quite true. ~Mary

I always thought the full moon kept me awake but I slept like a log last night. If I can't blame it on that I blame it on Dr. Pepper. I swear it isn't my consicience (sp?)

I'm with you all the way in desiring the real fall temps. The moon hasn't kept me up, but I've surely enjoyed what times I was outside after twilight.

Loved the moon and planet pictures. Fall temperatures will soon set in. Hope you were able to finally catch up on your sleep.
