For the past two weeks, I have been waking up around 5 am in order to get to the Habitat Blitz Build by 6 am. I have seen three things that (to me) are out of the ordinary during these early morning times.
3. Red red clouds
*I was a bit frightened when I saw the Armadillo cross the street in the dark of the early morning. I had a suspicion that it was either a huge king rat in a hurry to get back to his sewer palace before the sun gave him away..... or it was an armadillo. I am glad it was the latter of the two. A few facts abour Armadillos:
-Have poor eyesight
-Used in leprosy research
-Like to swim (can hold their breath for 6 minutes or so!)
-Armadillo meat was found on many menus during the Great Depression
-Live in warm weather due to lack of fat on body
They look pretty gross eh?
* For some reason I have always thought that it is realllly reallllly rare to see an eagle. I don't really know if that is true or not. But just this morning around 8:45 am, I am pretty sure I saw an eagle soaring over my apartment! I woke my husband up from his slumber with "I just saw an eagle!!!"
Well, hmmm...I just researched the Golden Eagle, and I guess they do not reside or come near to Miami. Perhaps it was another bird...but it looked just like this one... which is a Golden Eagle..
* The final special morning event was a marvelous display of God's creation. It was around 6 am, and the sky was getting redder and redder by the second! Here is a pic:
God's face truly does shine!
