In the Still of the Night , As I gaze from my Window

At the moon in its flight
My thoughts all stray to you....

This scene from my window wasn't exactly taken in the stillness of the night but rather in the wee early morning hours of Saturday March 10th / 2012 ~ my birthday. Later in the morning, hubby gifted me with more lenses and a flash for my camera and silly me, here I was taking pictures at 4 in the morning without a clue I was getting equipment for my camera that he and the kids had bought for me on Friday while I was busy shopping in a local thrift store and uncovering more treasures . I was expecting more like books and art stuff, but don't get me wrong, I'm totally happy with my gifts, it's only I find it so Twilight zone, always a little step ahead of things to come....I guess I'm a little strange in that way. Anyway, a strange and happy occurrence  : ) and now I know why he had a little tiny grin on his face while I was snapping shots of the moon.Hopefully my camera skills will improve and in the future will take better pictures of the moon but for now I think this one will do.

Listening to this song I realize that I am missing my husband a little more than usual since this time around he had to travel the opposite way and across the sea; his work took him to Germany, funny how distance makes one's heart grow fonder.
He asked me what I wanted and I asked for a locket, gold or silver, old and oval but I'm not sure what he will return with , don't matter, he will be enough : )
He sent us some pictures of Laars, where he is staying, and with it's beautiful high steepled roofed houses,  cobbled stone roads and castle ruin right smack in the middle of town, it sounds much like a scene in a fairytale book.........makes me want to be there with him *_*

So, for this coming Paint Party Friday I am working on, you guessed it, another moon painting and I'm hoping it will be almost as lovely as the picture.

And I now I leave you with this beautiful song and it's lyrics. You may just want to sing along and pretend your on "American Idol", although I doubt this brand of music would be on their list of musical choices....too old fashioned I suppose ; )

Until later,
Annabelle :)

In the still of the night
As I gaze from my window
At the moon in its flight
My thoughts all stray to you
In the still of the night
All the world is in slumber
All the times without number
Darling when I say to you
Do you love me, as I love you
Are you my life to be, my dream come true
Or will this dream of mine fade out of sight
Like the moon growing dim, on the rim of the hill
In the chill, still , of the night
