Ava wanted to play with her flash light today for the first time since April.  It’s an old promotional flashlight that I put in her stocking last Christmas (funny how the best things are often free/unexpected).  She loves shining it all over the floor and stairs while our dog, Moki, chases the cast light.  Moki gets a little neurotic about chasing lights and shadows…but it’s fun! While we were playing, it dawned on me that the ambient light was low enough to allow for the flashlight to work!  Darkness is setting in, but with it, we are gifted illumination.

Is that an adorable gnome I see looking at me?

    Living in the city too, I can relate. From my back porch I can see 3 different houses very clearly and have found myself making assumptions as well. One house in particular that I can see is across the street from my back door neighbors. When I started staying home I would notice many cars coming and going from this house all day, everyday. After much observation and many ideas later, I found out that this house has a daycare inside. I think it’s a natural human instinct to be curious and I wouldn’t be surprised if my neighbors have watched to see what we do over here. I honestly feel that it gives me a sense of security or reassurance knowing who my neighbors are and what they do, so if something is not normal or right I can react. I believe what your doing and feeling is perfectly normal.
    Have fun in Hawaii with your family! I am jealous and in much need of a vacation. Hawaii is a wonderful place to travel to.
