Today is cloudy and mild.

I fed the birds.

Earlier this morning, I saw a great horned owl perched on the bench at the wellcap.  :D

I broke up brush in the ritual meadow to put on the firepit. 

I heard an owlet screaming and walked out to the edge of the yard, where it was perched on a telephone pole.

In the evening I went back out and broke up more brush for the firepit.

Hard Things

Life is full of things which are hard or tedious or otherwise unpleasant that need doing anyhow. They help make the world go 'round, they improve skills, and they boost your sense of self-respect. But doing them still kinda sucks. It's all the more difficult to do those things when nobody appreciates it. Happily, blogging allows us to share our accomplishments and pat each other on the back.

What are some of the hard things you've done recently? What are some hard things you haven't gotten to yet, but need to do? Is there anything your online friends could do to make your hard things a little easier?
