i know most of us in the states are in fourth of july mode, but i did want to pop in and wish you a happy independence day. on this day, many of us will find ourselves hanging with friends and family, eating delicious food, hitting the beach or pool, and, when the sun finally sets, watching the sky light up with fireworks. whatever your plans, have fun and be safe.
funny story: when we first moved into our house, every night at 9:40 p.m. i would hear this rolling, thumping sound coming from the attic. (the trap door of the attic lives in our master bedroom closet.) i thought: oh my goodness, this house is haunted! for three nights in a row, i about jumped out of my skin when i heard the rolling and thumping sound begin on the dot at 9:40 p.m., and every time i would finally get my husband upstairs to listen to the noise, it would stop. of course. until the fourth night, we both heard the noise together. the color quickly drained from my husband's face. "see, i told you, the house is haunted! we have to move." i said. just then, my husband opened the bedroom window and stuck his head out. when he pulled his head back inside he said, "that's the disneyland fireworks show!" (boy, was i relieved!)
so every night at 9:40 p.m., if i'm reading quietly in bed, i can hear the fireworks at disneyland...boom. boom. boom-boom. do you believe in ghosts?
happy fourth of july everyone!
