I was out getting the paper this morning in the dark and a light rain and had just turned back toward the house when I was scared out of my wits. The light in the dining room was on, and I saw the curtain in the front window move, and a small figure appear in the window. I half-expected it to be wearing a hockey mask! But no, it was just Ellie, woken up by the rain at 5:30am, who must have heard me opening the door to go get the paper.
Nothing like a little adrenaline to get you going in the morning, no coffee required!
