I live in a small rural area named Canoe, nestled in the hills of eastern Kentucky. I live in an old 2 bedroom farm house located on about 300 acres of mostly hillside property. The house is located in the head of a hollow. There are no more houses in the hollow although it does continue for quite a ways past my home.
I moved in the house last November 2011. The first occurance in the house was shortly after moving in. About a week into the move I was sitting up by myself one night, my husband had already went to bed, and I looked up and saw a woman standing in the living right where you enter the kitchen area. She had on a long white nightgown that had long sleeves and came in tightly at the wrist. She was old and thin and had greyish hair. As soon as I saw her she was gone. We had been remodeling the bathroom the whole week and had just finished it and it looked so much better. I sometimes wonder if she wasn't there to give me her approval. There had been two people that I know of die in the house and one was the original owner, a elderly woman and the other a young man who had overdosed on medication and died in the house about ten years ealier.
The next incident occurred when my son came to live with us a few months later. We both came in from a trip to town and I sat down on the couch and my son went into the kitchen. Upon entering he was hit in the back by a potato that had been on the stovetop. It was a whole uncooked potato. My son was shocked and looked to see what hit him and where it went. He told me to come into the kitchen and the potato was all the way across the room. We knew it was something paranormal but we have encountered such things before so we just laughed it off.
After that I just began to feel like I was being watched when I was alone in the house, which was most of the time. The morning hours are the worst, from about 9:00 to 11:00am. I often hear what sounds like the front door opening and shutting and sometimes I hear what sounds like someone dropping things on the floor. Often I find the broom or mop lying in the floor in places that they weren't before. I hardly ever find my shoes where I pulled them off at. They will be in another room or across the room.
The last incident took place this morning. It was about 9:30am and I rolled over to get more comfortable in bed and just as I found a good position I began to hear breathing sounds. They were heavy and sounded like someone breathing through their nose real hard. I was shocked and listened for a few more seconds and then I panicked. I just knew someone was right beside me. I looked across the bed and down at the foot of the bed and saw nothing. Then the sounds grew louder and sounded like someone was right next to my ear making the breathing sounds. I closed my eyes and began to pray out loud. Within seconds the breathing sounds stopped. I lay there for a while just taking in what had just happened. I continued to feel as if something were watching me. Finally I drifted back off to sleep a while longer.
At night my outside dog goes crazy. Of course, it could be a number of things he is barking at. We have many wild animals in the woods around the house and of course a few graveyards. I know something is living in this house with my husband and I. He has heard things too. Mostly things being jumbled about the house. Sounds of things outside moving around. He isn't really concerned but he dosen't spend any time here at the house by himself like I do.
