Moonlight Spooning

(or what I am not currently engaging in)

I read this article about tonight’s full moon. Because it is a “solstice full moon,” the moon is supposed to look unnaturally large—i.e. freakin’ huge—due to a more pronounced optical illusion.

As I was reading, the words moon and June started running around in my head and brought to mind this classic song which I became familiar with from watching the Doris Day flick of the same title:

By the Light of the Silvery Moon

By the light, of the silvery moon,
I want to spoon,
To my honey I'll croon love's tune.
Honey moon, keep a-shinin' in June.
Your silv'ry beams will bring love's dreams,
We'll be cuddlin' soon,
By the silvery moon.

There is nothing cuter than this particular Doris Day movie—a tomboy falling in love with the boy next door. Very sweet and sentimental. And really, Doris Day and Gordon MacRae make a great on-screen couple. Here is a clip from said movie of Day and MacRae singing the title song:

And watching this, I am getting very sentimental and romantic thoughts of me and Mr. F. snuggling underneath a large June moon.

But… is twilight, the perfect time to see this natural phenomenon, and where am I? In my room writing this post. How depressing, eh? Because, unfortunately, Mr. F.’s work hours are such that activities like moonlight spooning are currently quite out of the question. *sigh* And while I could step out and give this wonder a glance, I am feeling particularly peevish; If I can’t view it under the right circumstances (cue images of a romantic setting with Mr. F.), I don’t want to see it at all. *humph*

Hopefully, your stubbornness won’t rear its ugly head, and you can enjoy the view.

I feel you dearest is just a tad bit more unaccessable than yours at the present time, so such romantic options are like a slap in the face! :)

Cute clip...I haven't seen that movie, even though I am a huge Doris Day fan!
