img_3888Today is the third anniversary of moving into our new home.  I’ll never forget after all was moved in, Ray shook up some martinis and we started to sip away at them. 

It was a Friday.  I opened the door and the full January mood was rising (similar to Saturday’s spectacular moonrise).  I turned to Ray and said “Oh my gosh, we moved in on a Friday the 13th full moon.”  Just then–I shit you not–a pack of coyotes raced past the courtyard gate right between us and the full moon.  I turned to Ray and said,

“I’m going to take that as a good sign.”

I remember coming out here every day while the house was under construction.  It felt endless waiting for them to finish and yet here we are years later.

Rode it to work yesterday.  Froze my ass off but it was worth it!

It’s a Kawasaki Ninja 250.  A 250 is very small for me.  It was like riding a bumble bee.

NOTE: I have upgraded to the latest WordPress version and noticed my photos do not enlarge. I’m working on it.

6 Thoughts on “Happy Mooniversary

  1. Cobban and Ray, Happy Anni…I mean…mooniversary to you. And that pack of coyotes? Obviously a very good sign. Many more mooniversaries to you 🙂

  2. That moon was gorgeous. I wish I had thought about taking some pics.

  3. That is so odd. We had a full moon here, too. What the heck is going on?

    Congratulations on your home-iversary. Did you have more martinis, to set the mood?

  4. Oh yes, many more martinis.

    In the times of old the January moon was called “The Wolf Moon.” Winter wind howls like the wolves that stalked early villagers. It causes you to draw to hearth and home and pulls a cloak of protection and strength around you in the darkness.

    From the Boys From VA we wish you and Ray Happy Homeversary.
