Teddy waited patiently for the eclipse. I was very excited. I had been waiting for this day for months. I bought eclipse glasses 4 months ago and gave them to all of my family and friends. They thought I was a little crazy but they were very happy to have them yesterday when the day finally arrived. The glasses were sold out everywhere and were impossible to find.
I couldn't take any direct photos of the eclipse but it was awesome. As it began, the shadows it formed were eerie. At the height of the eclipse, it became very dark and the crickets began chirping.
One of the cool things to do during an eclipse is to hold a colander in the sun to cast a shadow.
Instead of casting small circles, it casts crescents! Click for a better look.
Teddy was completely unfazed by the whole thing and actually went into the garden room and fell asleep.
On another note, my husband set up all of my Halloween blow molds for me.
When Teddy and I go outside when we get up in the middle of the night, this is what greets us. Our minions.
