Hi everyone! Well, it certainly felt more like winter today with that new snow, wind and colder temps. Not that I wanted it to feel more like winter. But it came anyway. Have to expect that this time of year. November can be an odd winter month for us. Sometimes it will bring a lot of snow, sometimes not much, like this year. Some years we can have our coldest temps of the winter, other years much milder, like this one.
I had that strange feeling again last night. That feeling of being watched. Made me laugh a bit. It was snowing and cold, who would be out on a night like that? Right now I leave a light on in the living room so that when I get up during the night I won’t bump into things and injure myself. Worse, that is. But I leave the drapes open for Muffin. She likes to look out the window for a while at night. This morning when I went out to feed the birds there was human foot prints on the deck and going over to the window.
One of my readers gets a little freaked out when I talk about these things. So you might not want to read any further “L”. Notice I just used the first letter of her name. That way no one knows who it is. Anyway, this event happened a number of years ago and was the first time anything like this happened to me. My parents and I had just moved to this house. We had been gone for a couple hours and when we came back there was all those stacks of packed boxes in every room. Most of mine were in the dining room at the time. I asked, who opened one of my boxes? Mom and dad looked at each other. Then I noticed 2 more of my boxes were open and stuff moved about.😬
Then dad noticed a window was open. Break in! 😲 Dad told me not to go upstairs to my bedroom. Too late. I was already upstairs. Sure enough, someone had gone through my room and made a big mess. Obviously someone my size since they took my clothes, including a new jacket I hadn’t had a chance to wear yet. Plus all my camping gear. Some miscellaneous items. And a nice antique clock that had belonged to my grandmother. 😳 Sigh. That was the worst thing. Other things could be replaced. Not that one. I have been looking ever since.🤔 I did find one once, but it wasn’t working and I couldn’t fix it. Sigh. Still looking.😕
Dad called the police. The usual report was made. No one caught. Nothing found. We didn’t really expect to. Only my stuff had been stolen so the police figured the person possibly knew me. Though it could have been random. It’s enough to give a person that strange feeling sometimes. It does feel strange knowing that someone has been in your home and gone through your belongings. That was the first time. But not the last.
Something different after all the comical posts lately.😂🙄 I hope you enjoyed it anyway, I will share other such things at a later time. In the end, why worry about such things? It’s just stuff that can be replaced. Most of the time. Better to keep a positive outlook and keep a smile shining. I hope you have a great evening/day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
