Supermoon

Supermoon picture from November 2016. (photo taken by Ed Murray, NJ Advance Media for NJ.com)

Did you know that Sunday, December 3rd was a supermoon and the only one in 2017? Wikipedia says this about supermoons: “A supermoon is a full moon or a new moon that approximately coincides with the closest distance that the Moon reaches to Earth in its elliptic orbit, resulting in a larger-than-usual apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth.” Two supermoons will occur in January 2018, on January 1st and 31st.

Did you get to see the supermoon or will you try to see one in January?

    sheesh, forgot to look out the window. no joke. reminded myself earlier in the day not to miss it, then missed it anyway. :eyeroll: Tho’ driving home from dropping grand off to work Friday evening, the moon was already huge and striking, so that was pretty cool.

    Not sure I know I tired, thanks for the info about the upcoming supermoons, I will put it on my refrigerator.

    The rooms are amazing!

    Is anyone else trying to collect the Gold Sparkle Theme?
    I have bought quite a few boxes.

    We are getting ready for another doctor appt., we have one everyday this week and maybe a procedure on Friday. It never ends.

    KinzGram. sorry your hubby is struggling with medical issues.. It is sometimes equally challenging for the primary caregiver.. Take care of yourself too KinzGram.. will keep you both in my thoughts and prayers..
    I am not collecting Gold Sparkle theme.. although I did order new December
    Webkinz. and a gold box is sent for each pet.. have not opened yet.. what are you looking for ? maybe I can help !
    Supermoon was really beautiful… although a little cloudy.. so it appeared a bit smoky !
    Won a google trophy this morning !! pet had asked to go to arcade to play GoGo Googles… was at level 3 and message sent to check my dock… and there was the trophy… I am really not very good at that game..so it was not
    awarded for my skill level !
    Off today… Starting my To Do List… I hope you all have a good day !

    thanks for the new post, patsie! we did go for a walk outside to see the supermoon last night. for once it wasn’t covered up by fog. it was huge! we’ll have to be a bit more prepared on Jan 1st or 31st next year and try to get to see it a little earlier at night, when it’s closer to the horizon and try to take pictures of it. we were busy decorating the tree and cooking for the week so we didn’t get out until it was way up in the sky.

    who was it who was looking for yellow furniture? it took me a while to find this but someone on facebook (my apologies for not remembering who it was) ages ago did some fabulous rooms with specific color items and this was her yellow room:

    December 4, 2017 @ 7:24 pm

    we have had them in the past………..they are too casual……….dd needs them for an internship………..she needs flats or something very similar due to her knee…….

    kind of funny when she found out her chuck taylors would not fly! ha ha ha

    ha ha ha ha………….it is really funny as her mother has been nagging her for a couple years to get some grown up clothes………..
    i have some super comfy born shoes and clarks, but she will not wear animal products……….which i am pretty sure they are not all like that……gonna be a fun shopping holiday break…….(we both hate shopping)

  16. 16 tmt5 said,

    December 4, 2017 @ 8:44 pm

    Dee try 5 below they sell cloth flats. Since they are material and plastic soles they should be vegan. $5 shoes so who know on the comfortable front. But they are the only place I can think of I’ve seen shoes with no leather that at least look sort of dressy.

  17. 17 tmt5 said,

    December 4, 2017 @ 8:47 pm

    Maybe payless Older has some cloth heels from there but they might have leather on the inside.

    Have I said lately how much I dislike Webkinz with ads?

    I only leave ads on long enough to see the Reindeer Calf and then turn ads off again until the next day.

    I am only seeing the Reindeer Calf since I want the stained glass window and sweater that depict it.

    hey
    i know you can send estore points to your game acct in the world
    is there a way to say……….me to send estore points to a deluxe person to buy me that reindeer baby?

    to be clear, i am NOT asking for the reindeer baby, i am asking how to save some points……..
    thanks in advance, but i know you all get around christmastime…….

  32. 32 zingyginger said,

    December 5, 2017 @ 1:37 pm

    no, you can’t send from ganz eStore account to another ganz eStore account. the only way to send points is from ganz eStore to a ww account.

    if you pay someone real $$ (like thru paypal) to buy points on their ganz eStore account, that would be the only way to “send” points (by having them buy the points on their account).

    if you want to use up your points, my suggestion is to make one of your ww accounts, one that you’d want the reindeer calf on, deluxe for a month for 99 cents. then send estore points from your ganz account to this ww account to buy the reindeer.

    December 5, 2017 @ 8:48 pm

    Its getting close to this quarters finals, they start next week for me technically, but I have to work on stuff before then. I just registered for next quarter, and it looks like I will have to head to class each weekday this time.

    A bunch of you know I play around with sketching and artsy stuff, and winter quarter I ended up registering for an art class. I was hoping I wouldn’t have to take art classes, but due to disliking my other options even more, I’m taking that instead.

  47. 47 Patsie said,

I’m often too tired for WW at all sadly. That being said I am overall happier in my new position, just more work lol. I am off for a few days. We are going to go to Orlando for the weekend to celebrate Christmas. With my son being older now it seems more important to do things as a family for the holidays than to buy gifts.

    There are so many cute dog sweaters. I would occasionally buy xs dog clothes for the girl’s stuffed animals.

    Riley and Ginger have a bunch of sweaters. Riley gets really stinky if he wears his sweaters too long though. I took his sweater off earlier, but now he is shivering. I covered him up with a blanket though.

    Do you want to see one of things Ginger and Riley are getting for Christmas? They are each getting one.

    I am back now, my mom decided she wanted to photograph the donations tomorrow.

    I ended up doing my brain training instead.
