It’s been hot here in Los Angeles. Like end of days hot. I can’t remember a winter where January meant 80+ degrees and sunny. Where is the rain, the gray skies, the chilly wind? Stuck in summer’s pocket I guess because that’s what this winter feels like…a hot, long summer.
I’m not the only one who feels a little crazy in this way-too-tropical January. My kids are also starting to go a little loopy. A little off-kilter. A little ow-ow-awooooo at the moon, if you know what I mean.
And speaking of moons, tonight you’ll see one. The smallest little moon of our new 2014. Scientists call it a Minimoon (remember that Supermoon everyone went bananas about a few years ago?), but obviously it just means that the moon is farthest from our planet. Like a skyscraper in the distance, we can pinch it in our little fingers. Come on, I can’t be the only one who remembers this stuff from school?
