We conquered the sleep-deprived grumpies today by getting out into nature. (Is it just us, or do full moons drastically affect sleep in your house, too?)
A friend recently told us about a hike we had to take, to a great-blue-heron rookery, from a downtown neighborhood, of all places!
Closer to earth, we saw a garter snake,
Later, we went out to dinner with friends, followed by dessert and dandelion-blowing in a little park in the center of our town.
And when bedtime came and went by an hour, with no sign of sleep, I got Lucy back out of bed and into the car and we went in search of the "supermoon." We caught glimpses of it through the trees in all its huge orange glory, and continued looking for a good viewing spot as it rose, lightened, and got hidden by clouds.
It was well worth the extra-late bedtime.
My best cure for a difficult day--take it outside and breathe in the wonders of nature.
