I haven't been able to stop wedging chairs infront of the doors, even though it has been well over a month since I saw that guy walking through our yard at 10:30 PM. For the past few weeks I have been able to stop having the flood lights on at night.
I thought I had a problem I should be getting over by now....
One of my neighbors called me today and asked if I had heard about all the car break-ins in our neighborhood (about 10) (it is a cul-de-sac of about 30 homes). She told me she thinks one of the homes was broken into as well; and that a few neighborhoods over, some lady's house was broken into and she was abducted. (I'm hoping that last one isn't accurate.)
Horrible. I like to be paranoid without cause.
Oh well, those chairs aren't going anywhere,
and it's back on with the flood lights!

by the bye,
the black sandal (Bob's) is necessary to keep the basement door open for the cat. (location of cat loo)

I've just read through your last three posts, and oh dear!, your mood has turned. As it does. And then it turns back again.

I'm sorry for your real fear of break-ins, but this picture is so funny! Bob's sandal, especially.

I hope today is a good day. I'm going to be baking and listening to classical music -- in lieu of my real desire to go back to bed!

Raining here, on and on and on, since yesterday.

Yes indeed my mood is highly variable of late. I am as happy as I am sad though. They just keep flopping over each other in successive bursts.

A combination of cold dreary weather, the anniversaries of the deaths of loved ones, and a general hibernating attitude, is mixing with the beauty of glowing lights, get togethers, and the wonders of the season; I seem to forever be tired and cranky, and forever be sentimental and moved by the beauty I see.

You make it sound lovely, (despite the desire for sleep, or at least to be bundled under blankets) musical baking. The mixing of such wonderful ingredients,

Oh I'm so sorry to hear about your break in - it's such an awful thing to happen, you feel so invaded and unsafe.

Take good care of yourself see, and I hope you enjoy a long succession of good and happy days.

:) Thanks. Though thank goodness, we (our house and cars) have not been broken into. But sadly it is becoming common in our area.
