Blogging by Moonlight?

Moonrise Over Willapa Bay

Since 2008 I’ve taken some pride in having my daily blog written and published on the web no later than eight ayem NoMatterWhat.  Granted, there have been a few misses.  But very few until this past February 28th when Nyel broke his hip and our lives suddenly turned upside down for a bit.   Right now, for instance, it’s seven in the evening and I’m just sitting down to reflect on things.  I wouldn’t be surprised if soon I’ll be blogging by moonlight!

Today started at 4:00 A.M. with hurry up and get ready, eat breakfast, pack a lunch… hurry because the EMTs are coming at 5:30 to get Nyel into the car.  It was non-stop from that point on – up to Seattle to see his cardiologist who had juggled his busy schedule to check Nyel out.  Yes, Nyel has a great deal of extra fluid aboard (what were those St. V. people thinking???).  He is also iron deficient anemic.  And his meds need tweaking.

We are SO glad his doctor urged Nyel to make the trip, painful though it was for him.  And did I say that driving up and back to Seattle in a day is not my favorite activity even when I’m not doing all the driving — which I was this time, of course.  But… it was SO worth it on so many levels, the most important being peace of mind after three weeks of great uncertainty.  Now we can concentrate fully on getting Nyel well and getting him walking and can put our recent experiences behind us.

The March Moon is called this because the ground begins to soften and earthworm casts reappear, inviting the return of robins.

Back home by 5:30 for a cup of tea and a snack and finally time for the blog!  Not by moonlight this time but it’s good to know that, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac this month’s Moon may “appear” brighter and bigger than normal because it is a supermoon –meaning the Moon will be nearly at its closest to Earth for the month of March.  So, blogging by moonlight might not be all bad, if it comes to that.  But I’m hoping that we’ll begin returning to ‘normal’ soon and for me that means blogging at sunrise!  Maybe tomorrow…

    Sooo glad you got Nyel up to see his cardiologist in Seattle. He seems to be the one that has figured out Nyel’s issues and puts him on the right track with good meds etc. I’m sure he will be feeling much better again soon and on track for being farmer Nyel.
