Well I was able to immediately fall back asleep after my 3:10 am awakening….miracle right? Well outside my bedroom window, on the other side of the fence there is a decent size creek in the woods. At 4:30am I was ripped out of my sleep into a sitting up position….the beagle flew off of the couch and started pacing……she’s not very graceful and sounds like a bull in a china shop. Then right when my heart started beating again, about 3 or 4 minutes later I heard it scream again.
Was it an owl?…an eagle?…a hawk?….I have no idea, but it made me want to hide under a rock and I was inside. It was a raptor and it was right outside my window, I should consider myself lucky that I didn’t pee the bed….whew! How many people can say they started their day that way? I know…..only me.
It is the most interesting start to a week that I have had since I can remember.
Can’t wait to see what the rest of the week brings….Zia
