Night of the Owls

Mystical Great Horned Owl

Last Christmas Eve night  I woke up at 2 am to the sound of a Great Horned Owl calling to another owl that returned the call.  This went on for about an hour.  It had been more than 20 years since I had heard an owl at night.  When I looked out the window, there was a beautiful layer of new fallen snow and the moon shined bright over such.  It wasn’t quite a full moon but just short of such.  What a beautiful sight and the sound was magical.  I wrote about it the next day.

Tomorrow morning at 4am there will be an eclipse of the moon.  Maybe our Owls will be back to watch from their nearby perch.

Love those Owls.

Tomorrow, back to cleaning and decorating.  Trying to get our tree to the next level.  Poor Jim and Alex had to look at this all week…a half baked tree on a card-table on a large wooden box.  We just called it art and left it at that.  However, tomorrow – it gets finished.

Here’s my helper – Alex.  He was sneaking some Jello in between tasks last week.   My shaky hands don’t take good pics.

On Tuesday this week – we had our first snow…on top of a layer of ice.

Of course we had to drive to Columbia that morning.  We passed more cars off the road and almost was in 2 accidents ourselves.  We weren’t though and we were thankful.  We were also thankful for a good report from the doc on Jim’s eyes.  God is good.

So tonight’s an eclipse and don’t forget to set your alarm to get up and watch…

Have a great night!
