of lunar eclipse + sleep deprivations

lunar eclipse, red moon

I heard about the much-awaited lunar eclipse yesterday when I turned the TV in the living room whilst Jared decided to have an early-evening exploration. I failed to hear the rest of the news though as I quickly turned off the tellie when the little man decided he’s seen enough of the living room + went on to explore the other parts of the house, with his mum at his heels.  Needless to say, the anticipation about the impending astral display got lost in the thick of things,  the chores that I needed to do, dinner + bathing  Jared afterwards.

I was sleepy by the time I was putting Jared to sleep + was snoozing even faster than my little man. It was a good thing I woke up around 2.30 am, + quickly woke my brother up, just in time for the usually bright moon’s transformation into a darker + red one. It was an amazing exhibition + I did try to capture it with my camera, although, after several failed attempts, I abandon the lost cause altogether, thinking I cannot capture it as close enough as I’d love to + as best as I should. Good thing that other bloggers posted their own captured images of the red moon, one good example is that photo by pro-blogger, Sir Az. He’s got loads of moon images, capturing the moon, from one phase to the next, it is just amazing. Go see it if you haven’t already! 😉

As I have mentioned, this mum is a little hazy + groggy these days, no thanks to a self-inflicted sleep deprivation. I have been up in the wee hours of the morning tinkering on both this blog + my son’s corner. Am only glad that after a few days of less sleep, my blog is back to being decent enough for visitors to linger + leave a comment or two, again. I have yet to customize my headers, though, since the one I have now is the one that comes with this cool new theme I am using (many thanks to sis Gene, who has a brand spankin’ new travel blog, by the way, for her brilliant suggestion!).  So I will be looking into tutorials on Photoshop + other image editing software where I can make my future lovely headers. Also, I think something’s gone haywire with the Search function + the search results are not showing up, so I also have to burn the midnight oil lamp + try to figure out what happened + how I can make it to function again.

Got any  suggestions? please fell free to leave me a comment below 😉

I’ll write some more posts now to work on my backlog + leave you all in peace! Happy Thursday one + all! 😉
