Yesterday, the Mom and I had a plan. It wasn’t a complicated plan. We just wanted to be at Home Depot right as they opened. We were on time (ish) for that plan to happen and then I made the mistake of looking out the window. And I saw baby Owl eating his breakfast and the plan literally went out the window as we gave up on HD and just watched out the window for hours.
I think this is my favorite picture, my favorite memory of the Mom.
While the Wild Animal Feeding Show was happening, there was a lot of me running about from window to window trying to get a better look of that one on the roof of the fort or hiding in the tree tops. Husband was dragged in because I’d screwed up the camera and needed tech support. He even got OUT of bed on his day off to watch the nature show that was suddenly our backyard.
But Mom just sat, binoculars in hand, watching it all unfold.
