Okay, I am now convinced that something is going on here at ElsBeth Lair. I have told you about some of the strange things happening in my studio. It is not common but they happen.
Last summer my business card holder which is a hand holding the cards was thrown 10 feet from the 3 foot high shelf it was sitting on. At Thanksgiving time I heard sounds coming from the studio in the middle of the night and went to investigate. As I opened the door I noticed my xacto knife rolling across the table and then onto the floor.
Yes, I am sure that somebody can go about and try and debunk these things. I wish they would, because quite frankly they are starting to creep me out.
I admit that during the daytime it is fun as heck to talk about and I laugh about the ghosts in my house and I even say that with me doing Halloween full time that they are more than welcome, but come around 2 or 3 in the morning when it happens, it doesn’t seem so fun anymore.
So last night I’m in bed and something woke me up. I couldn’t go back to sleep so I grabbed my ipad and decided to check to see if someone placed an order in my store at 3:00 in the morning.
Hey don’t laugh. It has happened.
Anyway, we keep our door shut so that cats don’t wonder in and start walking all over us. Out of the corner of my eye, I notice a dark slit against the wall. I look at it and it is the door opening ever so slowly. I figured it was one of my grandkids checking to see if we are asleep. It opens to about 4 inches and I say “Hello”, but nothing happens. I get up and open the door and nothing is there.
While I’m up I decide to go to the bathroom. my bedroom door is now wide open. As I was finishing, I hear a soft “Click”. I walk toward my door and noticed it is now totally closed and latched.
I hurry and open the door to see if my wife had closed it. She was sound asleep.
My heart at this point is pounding in my chest and I notice my breathing has become eratic as I looked around for answers. My wife wakes up and asks what I’m doing. I told her all that had happened and she said, “Okay, come back to bed.”
I’m telling you, it freaked me out. Could it have been a mysterious breeze coming from nowhere that opened and shut the door? I guess. But it doesn’t explain how the door knob was turned for it to open in the first place or how gently it shut and latched itself.
Just another of those unexplained things that seem to happen here in the Witches Lair.
Happy Halloween as always everyone!
