The Owl and a Crawfish Party!

It's Wednesday and I am excited to join 2 events: Outdoor Wednesday, which is hosted by Susan of http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/
and Watery Wednesday at http://waterywednesday.blogspot.com/
Be sure to visit these blogs to see some breathtaking outdoor pictures.

For the last 2 years, everytime I garden around dusk, I could hear something hooting. I look around but I can never find anything and I could never figure out where it is coming from. Finally last week, I saw this big bird fly above me and then landed on the tree branch. I immediately went in the house to grab my camera.
Sorry but this is the closest I can get him. The tree is very tall.

See those big eyes?
Every year, we go to a crawfish party. I always end up eating so much cause they are so good. They are served with potatoes, mushrooms, corn and sausage.
There were ice chests full of crawfish with different degree of hotness, all 700 lbs of them. There's my good friend, Nit with me. Unfortunately, this is probably the last crawfish party I will be attending with her because her hubby just got a new job in Alaska. Nit is my shopping and karaoke partner and I will miss her dearly. I will miss her good Thai food too.

There is a pond nearby.
We really enjoyed the view from where we were eating.

John was just chilling out enjoying the tranquility.

Everybody was busy munching away! See how the tables have holes in the center and we just throw all the shells in there. Of course there is a trash can underneath to catch them.

What can be better than eating crawfish while listening to country music?

After we stuffed ourselves, we headed home and right ouside the property were these cows.
Don't you just love the cow with the white face?

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the crawfish party. Thanks to our lovely hostesses for these 2 fun events.
