Friend Makin' Monday - Three Things

Happy Monday!  The girl and I had a nice weekend alone because the hubby was in Dayton for the big Ham Radio Convention from Wednesday til he drug himself home Sunday evening. 

Funny story - I gave both hubby & I heart failure last night!  We were sleeping with the window open and I work up around 2:40am and smelled smoke.  At first I was like O_o.  Then I realized it smelled like it did 2 years ago when the neighbor's house was on fire!  So I rolled over and was looking out the window (for a glow or fire truck lights? idk) then for some reason I looked back over my shoulder toward the bathroom and swear, in the dim glow of the nightlight, that the room was filled with smoke.  I freaked!  I leaped out of bed, yelling that the house was filled with smoke and started throwing lights on and looking frantically for flames.  I never saw Randy move so fast, EVER!  He was right behind me and finally told me that I must have been seeing things - there was no smoke.  I calmed down a bit and realized he was right.  Ooops.  Sorry?  

I still wonder where the smell was coming from.
