These are some things from my journal, which I only started keeping because of Miracles51031. It's been odd winter.
10-28-10. Brad asked me to find his old cell phone yesterday for his coworker, whose daughter had lost her phone again. Brad wanted to save his friend a few dollars by giving him the old phone for his daughter. Well, I forgot to look. Brad came home, went to change, and thanked me for finding his old phone. I asked what he meant, and he thanked me again for finding it. I told him I had forgotten to look and didn't find. He told me the phone was on his side of the bed, just under the edge of his pillow. It was weird, but I was grateful. I would have never found that thing on my own.
10-30-10. My alarm went off, I lay in bed for awhile longer. Too warm and comfortable to get up. I was lying on my left side, and a voice whispered "Connie" in my right ear. The voice was kind and friendly and sounded happy to see me awake.
10-31-10. Heard Brad's text message alert go off in the kitchen, even though I know he's at work and has his phone with him. Maybe all the crystals in the house are recording new residuals?
11-7-10. Most of our spoons and a few knives are in the iron skillet in the pantry instead of the storage bin in the pantry they belong in. I thought Brad put them there as a prank, but he swears it wasn't him. I know it wasn't me. Guess just normal stuff for here then.
11-9-10. Yesterday I downloaded a Lord of the Rings soundboard application on my phone. Tap a button on screen, the corresponding quote from the movies plays. I had the application up, but wasn't within touching distance of the phone. Neither was anyone else, then we suddenly hear "my...Preciousssss." Brad was staring at my phone and said "Uh, no one was near that. No one touched that." A second later, Gandalf's voice came on, saying that the Ring had heard it's Master's call and awoken. Still no one near the phone.
11-22-10. Last night I left my phone on my nightstand while feeding the cats and dogs. Phone was on its main screen when I went to the kitchen; when I came back to the bedroom my moon phase's application was open. Maybe one of the cats tapped the button to open it?
11-24-10. Brad went to bed this morning and put his glasses in their case put the case on his nightstand. When he got up, his glasses case was zipped up in his duffle bag on the far side of the room. (This is the day we decided to get out for awhile and had the experience in my Creepy Little Gas Station story. Haunted no matter where we go.)
12-3-10. Left the computer to make some popcorn. When I got back the chat screen was scrolling rapidly, as if someone was deliberately scrolling through it. No cats nearby. Who knows?
12-7-10. Dropped Brad off at work came home and was getting ready to go back to bed. I was in the bathroom, there were only two cats in the room and neither of them near the toilet. The toilet tank shook behind me and I turned to see what shook it. Nothing over my left shoulder. When I looked over my right shoulder I saw a small gray spider on my shoulder that I would not have noticed if the tank hadn't shook. I thanked whoever took the effort to warn me about the spider. I guess someone in the house understands my arachnophobia.
12-12-10. Brad lost a key he needed for work yesterday. He looked in the Ziploc bag he keeps his wallet and other keys in. Not there. He looked through his duffle bag. Not there. Looked in his drawer in his nightstand. Nothing. This morning the key was in the sealed Ziploc bag with his wallet and other keys.
1-4-10. Last night at bedtime Brad put Vash's toy duck in Vash's cage. (2 of our ferrets, Anakin and Mistress Bear share a cage; Vash is much younger and has his own cage). This morning Duckie was in Anakin and Bear's cage. Don't know how Duckie got from one closed cage to another.
1-16-11. Heard hard rock playing in the bedroom. TV in there was unplugged. My radio was in the kitchen unplugged, and my phone was in my pocket. Nothing that could be playing music in there. New residuals acting up again.
1-27-11. Went out around 8:30 to feed Riley and Ichi. Was petting the dogs when a white, glowing figure drifted past me on the porch. No cars were passing by for me to blame headlights. Maybe Riley's friend paying a visit.
2-10-11. Sitting in the kitchen holding Spooky when I heard old fashioned music playing from the back of the house. No TV or radios on back there or even plugged in.
Well, that's the gist of my weird winter. Hope it wasn't too boring.
