Once In A Blue Moon
It is December 31st, 2009, New Years Eve and the night of the Blue Moon. A Blue Moon is not really the color of the moon, it means this is the second full moon in the same month. It happens only once in a blue moon. The last time it happened on New Years Eve was nineteen years ago. The last blue moon we had was in 2007.
I've heard the saying "once in a blue moon" all my life and I suppose I didn't really understand until my adult life what it means. So I was thinking about things that happen in my life, things that only happen "once in a blue moon".
Once in a blue moon.........
my husband may bring home flowers for me.
I might pull weeds in the flower beds.
I might step foot inside a mall.
I might worry about what someone thinks about the crazy gourd lady.
I think it might be time to clean a closet.
I might get the Christmas things down before the end of January.
I might remember some one's birthday before it has passed.
I might listen to something other than Native American Flute music.
I might go to bed before midnight.
I might consider the possibility that I don't know everything. (my husband would appreciate this one)
I might start supper before my husband is hungry.
I'm sure there are a million other possibilities for my list, but I might actually get off the computer and head to the studio before 10 AM today. That too would be a "once in a blue moon" thing!
