Things that go bump in the night..
The only downside to moving into an old house is that sometimes.. sometimes.. things still live there..
One evening I had been giving Ivy a bath in the tub. It had been a normal day of playing outdoors, dinner and, the normal evening tubby time.
I had just finished washing her hair in the tub when we heard it.
"Mommy? .. why is the piano playing?"
I think I just stared at her a moment, dropping one of her tub toys into the water. I heard it too. Her little pink piano was playing upstairs in the studio. How could this be? It's just Ivy and I in the house.. the cats were still outside playing. No one was up there. I have to admit to you - I was terrified.
"Well..I'm not sure sweetheart. Maybe it's just... the wind."
I knew darn well it wasn't the wind. The house we live in, (as you saw in my earlier post) is an old coastal home. Our front yard is the ocean, with a large lighthouse. I've wondered perhaps if this was an old sea captain's home. I think after this episode, I'll have to go to the local library and do some research.
"Let's get you out of the tub and in some jammies. We can get some flashlights and go upstairs. I'll show you everything is okay."
I got Ivy dried off and into some jammies. We went downstairs and found some flashlights in the drawer in the kitchen. We headed up the stairs into the attic for a real look at what was going on. Ivy was a little nervous to come with me but too scared to stay alone downstairs.
|Mommy, I'm scared.|
As for whomever, or whatever is living in my home.. they are still there.
Maybe you can help us free them?....
