i woke up to...

the howling of coyotes.

what an unnerving sound so close to your window.

matt woke me up...and said, "do you hear them?"
how could i not?
it sounded like they were right outside.
like standing in the school yard. close.

i layed there. and listened.
you can listen to what i heard here.
under audio.

it was really.kinda.crazy.

from the research i have done. i see they are beautiful creatures.
beautiful creatures to live in the "wild". NOT my woods.

the worst part about it was...i rolled over and looked at the clock.
it was 5:21 a.m. in the morning.
that's like morning time.
on a good day, i get up at 5:30 a.m.
that gives me the chills.
i think it would "feel" better if it would have been 2 a.m. when i am tucked in bed for awhile longer. :)

it would seem that they eat well. off of our chicken compost pile.
we have seen them running from our pile during the night...
10 or 11 p.m., always when we are returning from somewhere, in our car.
still. unnerving. don't get me wrong. :)

our neighbor boy, who is kaden's age, saw one this summer.
like. up close. and personal.
i would have been completely scarred for life.
he came running home, and later took his dad back to where he saw it...
and there were big prints.

want to come over for a camp out?
