It's our second group Play of the week.

I had scheduled a meeting at a far-away park, and wasn't sure anyone would be interested, or show up.  (I co-administer our local unschooling group, so put together lots of events.)
The plan was to collect owl pellets, dissect them, and see if we could find the resident Great Horned Owls.

On the way out, the babes and I were very happy to see a few snowflakes falling!

We started talking about snow, and the holidays, and how many people don't want to talk about Christmas until after Thanksgiving,

and I started getting sentimental over thoughts of eggnog and glasses of wine with the family, and told them it was all (for the next two months) one big long holiday of family lovely time for me.

I love the holidays.

Soon enough we were at the park, and scouting for pellets.

Found some!

Lots and lots of them.

And there are the owls....

. . . . .


It was a lovely afternoon, spent with friends.
It's a wonderful life.


  1. YOWZA!!! this is wonderful. owl pellets have been on my mind, but i've only ever found one once, and not in the presence of a living owl!!! i'm loving your whole week...especially the walking meditation, in such a stunningly beautiful place...and snowflakes!!! sigh.

  2. I love that you found your own owl pellets!! And the snowflake-catching is pretty adorable. Happy Holidays!


Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts!
