Odds and Ends
After I wrote yesterday's post about Cuckoo Calling please disregard all of the nice stuff I said about that book. I read more last night and have decided that life is too short to read junk. I have too many other books on my shelf and rugs to make. I almost have my Etsy store ready to open all I have to do is hit the button to open. I will put a link here on the blog when I open . I am looking to a September opening date as my new little store will be called. " New Chapter Rugs."
homeless guy under the tree? Something else happened. Sunday night---Monday Morning. It was supposed to be the best night for viewing the Perseids. My son asked that night if it would be okay if he got on the roof around 4:00 A.M. to watch them. ( skunks are a issue remember.) We said that would be fine but to be careful.
The next day when I remembered I asked him if he saw lots of meteors. He told me how one lit up the whole sky. Then as an afterthought he said, " What was Dad doing out in the back yard with the flashlight?"
"Was he looking for skunks?"
I was getting dinner ready and I looked up and I said, " Your Dad didn't get up and look for skunks." He said, " He didn't. Are you sure?" Because there was someone going around the back yard with a flash light and I just thought it was Dad.
Ron got home from work and I said, " Did you get up last night and go outside.?" He looked at me quizzically . He said, " No I didn't. Why?" I told him what Peter had said. He said, " A light shined in our door and It woke me up but I just thought it was Peter on the roof. He went and questioned Peter further.
I don't know what to think. It sure makes me uneasy. I guess we will have to get some motion cameras set up to see who our visitor is. With so many vacant buildings around us now it could be someone living in any one of them.
When Peter was on the roof he did see two foxes out in the front yard. They were red foxes. A male and female. They were running and playing. He said he watched them and then the female spotted him and ran off out into the field across the road but the male watched for a bit before he ran off. Peter said, " They run neat, they don't really run they float."
This is how it is today. Just normal life. :)
Have a lovely Thursday,
