Who is that handsome fellow?

I was in a hurry to get out the door yesterday morning, was at the kitchen sink and looked out the window when I saw this gorgeous creature.

I took the first picture through my window which has a screen on it, so I wanted to try to get a better picture. So, I stepped out on to the deck to see if I could get him without flying away. I got another one, but it didn't turn out too great. And the owl looked at me, but stayed, so I kinda just walked backwards into the house. I'm happy have got what I got.

I'm not exactly sure what kind of owl it is, but I'm guessing a Barred Owl for now. I've never seen an own so close to my house and I felt really privledge that he chose my tree for his morning rest. I'm trying to look for "signs" of good things to come, and I will take him and the beautiful sunrise we had yesterday morning as positive signs indeed.

In other wild animal sightings, I got more acupuncture on Wednesday and he had me lay on my stomach this time and put a bunch of needles in my back (as well as the normal ones in my legs and ears). I asked him if he was turning me into a porcupine. It was not as relaxing as the other day because I don't like laying on my stomach.

That's beautiful! The only thing I ever get outside my house is an occasional racoon in my trash can - daring me to come near. Racoons are mean little A-Holes!

Love your new layout! And I do hope your little owl was a good omen!
