The year was 2004 around the month of February. My children were ages 9 months and 5 year old. My deceased husband and I were asleep in bed when I woke up out of a dead sleep. I don't recall the time of this incident but I am sure it was early morning around 2-3.
I was laying on the right side of my bed furthest to the wall. Beside my bed was an aquarium with our ball python Angelus. I was laying there when I heard the wood in the hallway creak like someone was walking. I lay there paralyzed with fear because both of my children were sound asleep, my husband was right beside me sound asleep. So, being the chicken that I was back then, I covered my head up and rocked myself back to sleep (LOL).
The next experience I had happened to me around the early morning hours same situation, kids asleep, husband asleep and I wake up out of dead sleep. I lay wondering what in the world? When out of nowhere I smell this sweet aroma coming from where my snake's aquarium is. I mean a nice smelling perfume. I am looking around the floor for something that could of spilled but could not find anything. I just fell back to sleep.
My husband woke up to take his shower on the way back from the bathroom, he was like, "I smell perfume." It was right in the doorway of the bedroom. I went on to tell him about the perfume smell I experienced earlier on.
We have experienced smelling food cooking when we clearly weren't cooking anything. I never before had this happen until we moved into this apartment.
