I See the Moon, the Moon Sees Me. Shining through the leaves of the old oak tree – are lyrics to an old favorite song some of us know.
The rest of the first verse is “Oh let the light that shines on me, shine on the one that I love.” We used to sing our parents’ old favorites when we were traveling in the car on family vacations. She’ll be Comin’ round the Mountain when she Comes is another favorite about a train ride. Recently I sang that to my Grandchildren when they were driving their little cars around the family room. Had to come up with a lot of interesting verses to keep them entertained!
Summer and early Fall is my favorite time of year, and part of that is because of the beautiful Super Moon or Perigree Full Moon (shown in the image here) that we see for 3 months in the summer. The first was on July 9th, and the second one was August 10th. The last Super Moon this year is September 9th. I love the light, day or night, and these moons appear to be 30% brighter as the moons’ orbit comes closest to the earth then. The resulting largest apparent size happens when the elliptical orbit has it’s narrow sides nearer to our planet, from our viewpoint. The Moonrises from the East and the Moonsets over Pikes Peak are even more impressive when we have the Super Moon.
I’m enjoying the views of the Super Moon this summer while driving through town and when I’m relaxing in my home. The moon appears so large as I look at it through my Silhouette® shadings. The window shadings give me a filtered view when the vanes are open as they cover the glass. So at night, I can see the moon with the shades down, as they give me insulation. It is a great way to have partial privacy and see outdoor lights during the evening and spectacular views during the day.
The light opportunities are definitely an attraction for me. They also attract bugs and allow debris to be “caught” in the vane openings. We invented our CamilyWand™ Sticky Bug Removal Tool™ to solve that problem. It easily and safely grabs pesky insects with its sticky CamilyTip, lifting them easily from the fabric, so our readers are able to keep their shades like new. It works on many Hunter Douglas and other companies’ blinds, protecting views and investments. In addition, using our tool for reaching other inaccessible places is a valuable option for removing debris during your home cleaning chores. We know you will find our CamilyWand™ to be a useful tool to have on hand.
We at CamilyWand™ wish you a safe enjoyable end to the summer days!
