The Sunday Post ~ 7/26/20

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~

It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

******************************************

Personal Highlights:

This was a pleasant week for our family. My oldest wrapped up the last of his summer semester maintaining his 4.0 GPA. Super proud of him! He’ll have almost a month off and then he’ll start his fall semester. All of his classes have been moved online with the exception of a lab, and less than 40% of it will be done in the classroom. This will be his final semester here at the local community college before he transfers to a university.

I had this beauty pop up this week. I love seeing this come back each year because it was supposed to be an annual.

We celebrated my middle child’s sweet 16 this week. And I had a little visitor while sitting out on my porch…

This is a great horned owl, for any that are interested. It’s one of 4 types of owls we get here in northwest Louisiana.

  2. What a great week you had! We can hear an owl at night but we never see him during the day. I think I might pass out if one surprised me like that. 😍

  3. Well done to your son! That’s quite an accomplishment. And a belated happy birthday to your other son. That owl looks huge! I think I would have backed away. LOL

    • Thanks!! This one has been making an appearance in the morning. I couldn’t believe it came all the way to my porch while I was sitting about 10 feet away and my dog was barking at it like crazy!

    • It was a descent sized owl. We have screech owls here and they are little bitty and just the cutest. I’ve gotten to hold them at our nature park nearby where I’ve volunteered with my son, but I haven’t seen any outside of that, though.

  4. Congrats to your son. A 4.0 is a huge accomplishment!
    I just finished Six of Crows and absolutely loved it!! Now I’m moving on to Crooked Kingdom. I’m also halfway through House of Earth and Blood – another really good one. 🙂

    • My son and I have both been trained to work with owls as volunteer naturalists, so we’ve both handled owls up close and personal. However, that was the closest I’ve ever been to one out in nature for sure. Very cool indeed!

    • Yes it is! Funny enough I was watching the hummingbirds when it showed up. My mom said she saw it again this morning hanging out under one of our bird feeders. We think it’s after the squirrels.
