One day, last week, I received an email that a burglar alarm had been tripped at sensor 12, at the lake house. We don't even have a sensor 12, but I checked the Pulse online anyway and everything looked normal. So, I called and everything looked good on the alarm company's end, too. They were going to have their technicians check to see what kind of glitch it could have been.
We came up to the lake. I arrived first and decided to walk the perimeter of the house just to make sure no windows or doors were busted in. They all looked fine. But, when I walked up onto the front porch I saw something so strange. It was a white spot of something with arrows pointing to it. After receiving the notification of a burglar alarm being tripped, I immediately thought, "Someone has been here on the porch. What in the world is that white spot and why would someone paint arrows pointing to it? Could this be sensor 12?" I got a little freaked out, I'm not gonna lie.
Up close....definitely looks like arrows...
Pointing right to the spot.
You can faintly see the others making a path straight to it.
Cliff arrived a little later and I took him straight to the porch to show him. I said, "Look at this. Why would someone do this? Do you think it could be devil worshipers"?
Without blinking an eye...he said, "Laurie, a bird pooped on the porch, stepped in it and then walked off".
OMG! I laughed and said, "Well thank the Lord! I sure am glad it wasn't devil worshipers".
(Found picture on internet)
It was most likely a Great Blue Heron.
There are plenty here at the lake.
Ha! Still laughing.
Went to Lidia's belated birthday paint party with her and...
Cliff tried out his new kayak.
It's 18' long and narrow. Our other kayaks are 16' long and are wide enough that you don't feel like you're going to flip them over. He practiced at keeping the new one upright. Didn't take long. He's doing a triathlon later in the year that is a little different than what he normally does. He will kayak, bike and run.
And then today:
We got this.....I was a happy girl.
I mean, I've been begging everyone that has snow to send me some....
And, I would just like to thank whoever did.
As little as it was, yes was, as it's all gone now....
I was in snow heaven,
