Lunar Eclipse April 15, 2014

I was able to see the total Lunar Eclipse this morning (1:30-4:30 A.M. Texas time). 

A shot wide angle with Mars.

I didn't know that a lunar eclipse was about to happen until I saw a friend's shared article about the Blood Moon on Facebook. 

The temperature dropped to about 42 degrees Fahrenheit and I was shivering outside trying to take great photos of the eclipse.  I thought, to keep myself warm, I will go inside my dear husband's truck.  Well I realized that it was not a good idea because I will be in trouble for using the gas for heat.  So I went in and out of the house.

But I tried my best to capture pictures of the beautiful moon.  I didn't want to miss the wonderful phenomenon.  Thanks also to the live stream of the lunar eclipse courtesy of the Griffith Observatory located in California.

There will be upcoming lunar eclipses.  For details click here.

Weekend Snapshots: Spring In The Yard

Weed flowers.
 These pretty little blooms are from the weeds in the yard.   My dear husband called me and darling daughter to show these flowers before he mows them.  I told him not to mow the purple ones shown on the left.  They're located by the bushes which faces the road.  The white weed flowers and the single blue flower shown on the right are scattered everywhere so he has to mow them.

Although these are weed flowers, they look really pretty and colorful.

Love Donuts

You deserve a donut.  :)

My darling daughter and I went to an Egg Hunt at the park yesterday with my cousin and her daughter.  On our way home, I was feeling a little hungry.  My little was eating her snacks and there was still some in our lunch bag but I didn't care for a sandwich.  I thought of donuts.  

I remember when my dear husband and I used to buy groceries at Albertsons.  I always buy donuts there.  So I called him and asked if he can stop by at Albertsons and grab a couple donuts while waiting for the prescriptions' refill.  

When he got home last night, he brought home four donuts - two for the little one and two for me.  Ah, I love donuts.  And yes, I deserve one.  :)  And so are you.

Dark Scary Skies!

Dark scary skies.
 This evening's weather was very scary.  See how the sky looked like? It was taken on my way home from a grocery store this evening.  

I was in the store buying some ingredients for my green salad for tomorrow's lunch when my friend called and told me that a tornado warning is up at our area and a tornado just passed her town and heading town close to ours.  I was aware that there's a severe thunderstorm coming but not this tornado thing.

When I finished checking out and headed to my car, the wind was blowing like crazy and sky was so dark.  It was close to 7:30 P.M.  In the Spring and Summer, the sun sets at 9:30 P.M. the latest.  As soon as my friend hung up, I called my husband and my cousin to tell about it.  

The severe weather brought hail and the tornado made two touchdowns but not in our area.  We only had rain at 10:20 P.M.  Thanks God!
