Pre-occupied by Owls

If you have not checked out our new favorite hobby at the Owl Box you are missing out!!

I have not done much else but watch Molly take care of her precious eggs.  This is a box owl that is nesting in an Owl Box in California by a man named Carlos who has been waiting for 2 years!  Finally these two owls settled in his box – their names are Molly and McGee.  McGee has been a great dad by feeding Molly and “bonding” – and Molly has been an amazing mom to watch today. 

They think this is her first time to have eggs – as she had not clue what to do the first time the egg came out – but today she showed that she has figured it out when the first egg hatched and Max was welcomed into the world by about 17,000 watchers – well honestly – 17,000 computers – in our house 6 people were watching.

It has been so much fun to watch Molly and learn all about owls – for me and for the kids.  But nothing else is going on.  No sewing, no creating, just watching.  Today the feed went down for a couple hours and so I was able to actually start packing my brood up for our big cross-country trip!  We leave Thursday and we are nearly packed!  Woo Hoo!!

   So that is what is going on here.  We will blog from Oregon next week with some great pics, I expect.  I cannot wait.  We pick up my mom on Friday at the Phoenix airport and then we embark on our journey West.  Well, we continue really.

  Make sure you check out Molly – it is amazing to watch her in her natural habitat with this great feed!  Carlos and Donna (the owners) have blessed so many with their generosity!!
