(sunrise today - 7:07 am)
I don't normally catch sunrise from the front of the house...but this morning, when I looked out the window, I was pleasantly surprised to see it. I quickly grabbed my coat and ran outside to capture. Today has been quiet...still resting after wearing myself out yesterday. I had some tasks to complete here at the computer. And this is where I have spent the day: catching up on emails, blog reading, etc...even stitching a bit on the last flower garden block! At 6 o'clock, I am going to join an online event so I'll probably continue the stitching...
But first, here's the story of late Monday evening: About 11:40 pm, I was @ the computer, putting the finishing touches on that day's blog post. Norman was closing up shop to go to bed and setting the security system. All of a sudden, the quiet is shattered with the tell-tale sound of the alarm's panic. My fingers froze and my heart started beating fairly rapidly...and I hear his voice - words not repeatable. His phone rings...but he can't answer it because it's in the basement. So, I wait for my phone to ring... "Hello. This is X -Security Company...and so we go through the drill:
- "Yes, we set off the alarm..."
- "Yes, everything's alright..."
- "No, we don't know what happened..."
- "OK...we'll wait" (The company rep tries to cancel the call to the local police - no can do). ..
- "Yes, the police arrived ...and we explain the situation and they say...
- "Fine..." and off they go.
I finish and publish the post. We retire for the evening. And no, we don't know what happened. Just that it did. Perhaps because I was @ the computer at a time when I'm normally not.
