house-hunting and hawks

We went for a little hike today. Fall has hit us hard and for the 1.5 hour ride the car windows were filled with foliage. The sharp-shinned hawks were catching the light over the mountain and we sat for a short while just enjoying the sight. Then we had a home to see.

House-hunting is interesting. Upon arrival I get an immediate feel for the place that I sometimes wish was transferable through the online photos. Sometimes the owners are there and communication is a little weird ~ they are leaving, for various reasons, and we are strangers entering and inspecting their private home. Some houses are filled with sorrow and sadness, and others with delightful nooks and whimsy. There is always a story.

I'm waiting to recognize the one we fit into.
