This odd owl came about while talking to a friend of a friend about Girls on the Run and my owls. I made a comment that I was still looking for today’s inspiration and suddenly noticed the print on her shirt. It had several different shapes that could become an owl, but one set looked like eyes and a beak. Of course, after playing with the oval shaped “eyes” that inspired me, I wound up with a completely unexpected owl. I was sure I’d have one that looked a bit like Day 3, Day 70, or maybe even Day 101. That will teach me to jump to conclusions about my owl inspiration.

Feeling quite ho-hum today. After 2 days of dreary weather, you’d think I’d be able to break out of that ho-hum feeling and enjoy the sunshine. But the gloom of the last two days is just sticking with me. I’ve got that Sunday-carride-with-Grumpa-Marlboros-Make-Me-Pukey feeling right now, but another day of working the Girls on the Run booth tomorrow should fix that!
Today’s owl is just a bit later than usual. But I have a good excuse. A really good excuse. I was watching Eames: The Architect and The Painter. As soon as it started, I was completely captivated by it. I was so focused on all of the items in the background and what they were saying that everything else seemed so far away. (Of course, I had to pay extra close attention during the 10 second shot of the Herman Miller plant in my strange little hometown.)

I keep watching for a break in the rain so I can go for a run without getting completely drenched (and frozen). So far, there hasn’t been a break since noon. It doesn’t look like I’m going to get one. I usually like running in the rain, but yesterday’s rainy run left me chilled to the bone for hours. I’ll keep watching for that break…
