This morning we awoke to sounds of someone on our roof.
"Is someone working on our house today?"
We scramble from window to window, peering out to see if we can find someone on a ladder. No one to be found.
"Maybe it's Santa Claus" Rich said with a wink.
Rich was about to go out the front door to investigate when he called for me. "Come look at this" he said.
And there at our front steps was a little bird with a long beak. And this bird wouldn't move. Rich came within a foot of the sweet little bird and still it didn't move. All through our morning getting-readies we'd peak out to see if little bird was there and sure enough, he was.
Meanwhile, nobody was on our house, or any house in the neighborhood for that matter, even though we heard distinct walking sounds and even some hammering. Oh, and also the sound of a ladder landing on the house. I'm glad Rich was here to hear all this too.
So there you are...2 mysteries to ponder today. Santa Claus on our roof and a bird stalking us.
Ann told me that they had a little bird visit them in the cottage yesterday. And she had a heck of a time escorting him to the door. Seems he was as delighted with all their vintage finds as I am when I'm there. Or maybe he mistook their sweet little nest pins for home. Can you believe these adorable little handmade pins are just $6 each?! Click here to get your own from the Cottage.
