Over Slept

It seems I've done something to my back so I've been moving very slowly for the past few days. This morning I rose early and gingerly stepped out back to turn on the hottub to do some soaking. The sun still was not up but there seemed to be an unexpected glow. There was Mr. Moon, in all his glory, still sleeping so I returned quietly to the warmth of the house while the spa bubbled away. About 30 minutes later it was quite light outside, I grabbed my cup-o-joe and again stepped outside and slipped into the warm water, ahhhh.

I looked up and noticed Mr. Moon still sleeping, I was a bit surprised but not as much as he was! He let out a gasp, I think I scared him for just as Mr. Moon woke up he saw me looking at him.

Once he settled down he said he said he never knows what to expect when he's over our house! What with Jeff tinkering in the garage until all hours and the light on in the studio almost all the time. He just does not expect to see us so early.

We had a nice chat, Mostly about the weather and how he has had to stay awake all night keeping an eye on all the groves to try to help keep them from freezing. Poor guy, no wonder he's been oversleeping! Suddenly he squinted, he had gotten the first ray of sunshine from over the roof behind us right in the eyes! We both looked over and there was Ms. Sun smiling..."I see you over slept again Moony, now be on your way" we all laughed, said our good byes and he was gone. Ms. Sun looked down at me and winked, "how is the coffee this morning dear" she asked.

Eric, how nice to hear from you!
The moon is bone and the green stone is Imperial Jasper. If you click on the item it will take you to my website with the full description.
