Look. It’s a rainy day here! We’ve had about three rainy days in the 8 weeks we’ve been here. Usually, it sprinkles for 5 minutes and then stops and the sun comes back out. Today, this is the view out my back window. Perfect day for another cup of coffee and some knitting. If I’m lucky, I’ll hear an owl hooting back in the trees. They usually talk at night, but one afternoon I heard three or four of them going on and on. And one evening, WH and I were taking a walk at dusk and one swooped overhead. I’m sure he was on his way to a meal. It made me glad that our cats are indoor cats! And I don’t think we have rabbits out there. Although, come to think of it, maybe the owls have something to do with that ….
Owls have seeped into my fall decorating, too. I can’t seem to resist a good owl decoration. See?

I should stop buying owls now. Instead, I could make an owl sweater, or an owl coffee cozy, or an owl hottie (just because I like the name). Are we friends on Facebook? If so, you might have seen this video I posted a couple of weeks ago. The subject? An owl. Flying right at you. I think I like them better when they’re hooting in the trees.
