Boy, things have been really busy the last two weeks. Our daughter got married on Sept. 27, so things were in a turmoil. Actually, it went well. They'd been planning for a year. But when you get down to the last few weeks, you start worrying about things you may have forgotten, waking in the middle of the night for no good reason, and yawning all day. The wedding was beautiful. All the women went to the hairdressers to get beautiful - a real Steel Magnolias morning. Everyone cried through the ceremony. The flower girl and ring bearer waited until after the ceremony to throw up. Some stomach thing was going around. What more could the mother of the bride ask?

Bad things usually come in threes, and our three bad things weren't too bad. Hurricane Ike blew through two weeks before, and although my daughter and son lost power, we were OK at our house. Our sister in Houston didn't get to come due to looting and no power though. The groom's father was in ICU during the first part of September, but attended the wedding. Hooray! My car was in an accident the week of the wedding, and since it was eight years old anyway, the insurance company just wrote us a check. So I now have a new son-in-law, a new car, a new camera, and a new cell phone.

The moon is in its Cheshire Cat phase right now, in a clear fall sky. I couldn't resist going for some sunset/moonrise photos at the Falls of the Ohio. After all the recent stress, it was great to relax and calm down with a little moon watching.
