I woke up to the sound of "something" scurrying on my roof. At first I assumed it was Rocco or one of the other little people doing something in the kitchen. Of course the first thing I'm thinking was that there must be a rat or raccoon or some unwanted rodent in my attic or on my roof. I had a flashback of the second house I bought when we only had 1 child at the time. It was a great house on a dead end street, built sometime in the late 1940s with a Norwegian King rat in the attic along with a few of its smaller friends.
As I lay there in bed, I thought, " maybe its the big white Heron that likes to hang out by the lake". Lately he/she has been leaving its perching place and flying on top of my neighbor's roof. Maybe today he/she was on my roof. It's crazy how a bird that big can fly so high.
After I got up & dressed, I went down stairs just to see that Rocco was on the computer and not in the kitchen. I went out side and the first thing I noticed were 2 crows in the backyard sharing something tasty. I then looked up at the roof and saw a bunch of crows, retrieving something from the gutter.
I breathed a sigh of relief since it wasn't anything major. Today would not be the day for anything scurrying overhead. We have potential buyers coming to see the house today. I was told that the realtor that is coming has a great track record. Maybe today will be the day we get an offer. Maybe today I'll be able to really start packing. I'll know by tomorrow.
Waiting until then.
