Snapshot & Whatnot: An (owlish) April Visitor

Last week whilst recovering from surgery & flu blues, we had a special visitor in the back-est regions of our backyard…

A Barred Owl!!ย  As often happens, just as I prepared to take a closer pic (crunching through the brush) our visitor woke up & flew away, but still, how cool is that?

An owl sighting, especially for owl groupies (like me.)

Dashing off to RavenCon – a science fiction/fantasy/very cool weekend convention (yes, Virginia is feeling much better, thanks for all the well wishing!)

Here’s a quickie quote to mind munch…

“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.” Albert Einstein

grace, peace & owls (& howls) of fun

Virginia : )

      Years ago a grey owl on a branch outside my window mesmerized me into blubbering wonder. So fascinating to watch! Since then I’ve collected lots of owls (we have special owl pillows all over the house) but it’s such a treat to see a real one!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Loved that quote

  3. The owl is adorable! that quote is a lovely truth!

    • Virginia says:

      I keep hoping our owl visitor will return. I hear owls hooting outside at night, but ’twas such a treat to see a Barred owl. Blessings, Michele! ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘€

  4. How are you feeling Virginia? Iโ€™m sorry youโ€™re not 100% yourself. Wishing you speedy recovery. Get enough rest.
    Thatโ€™s a great quote. Itโ€™s true indeed!

    • Virginia says:

      Feeling much better – many thanks – and methinks our imagination muscles need workouts (regular ones) that motivate us to work forward our dreams. Blessings!! ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿš€

    Thatโ€™s awesome, Ginny!! Have a great time at RavenCon and try not to overdo itโฃ๏ธ

    • Virginia says:

      Hey Cin – Loads of fun @ RavenCon. Had to call it a nite @ 9:00PM Saturday (programming went til after midnight) but made it back Sunday for a few good panels. โœจ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿš€โœจ

  6. What a wonderful photo…. Sorry that you haven’t been well Virginia and are soon recovered…. Diane

  7. TMH says:

    Glad you’re well enough to hit RavenCon. Love = A to B; Imagination = Everywhere. Love it.

  8. Debbie says:

    Virginia, I didn’t know you’re an owl-lover, too! How cool is that? I have THREE on my desk watching (supervising!) me! Glad you were able to get this guy’s photo before he flew off.

    • Virginia says:

      Debbie- I’m a huge owl groupie. There’s a wonderful artist who makes owl pillows (I just saw her @ RavenCon) we’ve collected 7 of her pillows that brighten the whole house. So grateful to get at least one pic of our owl visitor!! ๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ“ธ

    Virginia, you were very fortunate to get a picture of this lovely creature. You must have been ready to capture nature staring back at you. Thereโ€™s plenty โ€œnatureโ€ in my back yard too, but I fiddle with my phone too long to catch any really cool creatures. Good job!

    Feeling much better I hope…โ€™cause as youโ€™re aware, adventure waits for no one.

    • Virginia says:

      Thanks Sparkyjen — That’s great advice, adventure waits for no one, but isn’t it grand even when we’re recovering from health stuff that books can take us on grand adventures all around the universe? (& mystery-verse etc.) ๐Ÿ™‚ Blessings!!
