School and hunting season. . .
School started late in August and I haven't had a chance to blog. Bow season has been open since the first weekend in October. I have been out twice with hubby and actually sat in a deer stand both times. It is difficult to sit 12 feet in the air in the dark with a thermos full of coffee and maintain balance. But I love the sounds of the hour before twilight: faint rustlings in the leaves, owls hooting to each other, the night sky becoming lighter in teeny increments. I only burned myself once with my coffee as I poured it from the thermos into the built-in cup. It's hard to see when it gets full! I hope deer don't smell coffee. First and second time out, the only critters I saw were birds and squirrels. Dang, that deer feeder is loud when it goes off!
