Darn that owl! Make that "those owls." Before five this morning, a pair of them were yelling back and forth, and one was in the tree right outside my window. It's not unusual to hear a few whoo-whoos as they tag team during the night, but the nearest one just could not shut up. The farther one couldn't get a whoo in edgewise. I gave up trying to go back to sleep.
Just as well. Some long while back, I spoke about opportunity costs. While cleaning out The Black Hole and the second shed, working on the beaded ornament, finishing the paint project, and getting half done with the sewing, the rest of the house has gone to wrack and ruin and it needs my attention badly. I'm going to have to go through it like a whirlwind because company is dropping by today.
Speaking of the ornament, I'd left it on the table (silly me). I found it later on the floor, one of the points destroyed, threads hanging and beads scattered. I have nothing but circumstantial evidence, but in my opinion it all points to one of the cats. When questioned, they both gave me blank stares and lawyered up.
As long as I'm awake anyhow, I'd better get going. Wow! Light enough to see outside now...and we either got a heck of a lot of hail last night, or it snowed! Not a lot, but the ground and deck are white. Didn't see that coming.
