|And I tend to think the same. Everything worked out, the cake, the little gathering we had and Bea was sure overwhelmed by all the Congrats she received from blog-land. The day was adjourned with a nice meal down-town Lubec.
Well then, it was after dark, another late guest arrived. He was neither invited nor expected. He came when we were both in the sitting room. At first he threw his shadow around. Actually that’s how we noticed him. When looking up we saw he was doing circles in the room. He went along the walls, but avoided any collision with a piece of furniture and he didn’t make a single noise. His GPS is based on ultrasound. Yes – it was a little bat! We haven’t got the faintest idea how he came into the house. No window was open or any door. Did he cower behind the cupboard or bookcase?
How to get this guy out into nature again? It was dark outside and when we opened the window he was passing it without sensing the way out. We shut of the lights in the room. He was still circling but slowly loosing altitude. Then I got the “bright” idea to put a light outside on the porch. Yep, I used the solar light we bought in Quartzsite. When i got inside again our guest had found back to his freedom again. We could close the window and crank up the furnace a tad cause it was blustering cold outside.
When a new day dawned I felt tired like after a night with little sleep. I may have been dreaming a lot, that kinda wears me down and when morning comes I’m hesitant to get up. But it is my “job” to let Molly out and you can bet the ranch on it that she wants that every morning. I dared to look at the outside thermometer and what I saw made me shiver even more. It showed –2C. Now, that means
F R O S T. Molly came back from her morning business pretty quick and I let her go back up the stairs to cuddle back on her soft doggy-bed.
So you get the picture: What shoulda’ been a spring day was like a day in early march. It was the “Winter-Jacket-and-Long-Johns-Blues” again.
We had a extended chat with a long time friend from Norway. They consider to come to Canada this summer. Wouldn’t that be nice?
Later another SKYPE-chat ran up with a cousin of mine, currently visiting in Germany, but going back to Norway tomorrow. What a blessing it is that we have a thing like SKYPE these days. It sure makes it a lot easier (and cheaper) to keep in contact with the folks “over there”.
It was first during the late afternoon that the cold Northerner died down, and it was getting warmer. We did a nice walk through the neighbourhood, went down to the beach. What we found there you will read about tomorrow, I think.
Thanks for visiting with us!
