Full Moons and Hot Days

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?

In the meantime, I’m holding down the fort, barely.  These werewolf children are enough to make even one of those Kumbaya moms stop their Kumbaya nonsense.  werewolf costume
