I've Been Robbed!!!!
When we pulled into the driveway today I asked my husband why he removed the wreath from the front door. He said he did not. I know I did not.
Someone stole my red berry wreath.
Right off of my front door.
The front door that has the big spotlight pointing at it. The one that has a storm door that the thief had to open to get to the wreath.
This wreath tends to shed berries when moved. When we went to investigate I actually saw some berries in the snow. My husband pointed a little way down our front path,
"Are those berrries in the snow?"
You bet! I followed the berries all the way down the walk and into the wide street. They stopped in the middle of the street. I look all over the other side of the street but obviously the perp had gotten away by car...
I was thinking, perhaps the teenagers across the street had taken it and the berries would lead me to the red-handed criminals. I imagined confronting them and demanding my wreath back and then holding it above my head victoriously as I walked back home.
Instead I stood in the middle of the road with a confused look on my face.
Tonight I put another red berry wreathe on the door and LOCKED THE STORM DOOR.
HA! red berry wreath thieves, I had a SPARE. You can't thwart my resolve to add some color to my white house surrounded by snow!
I hope you got red berries all over your car. (Or your mother's car more likely.)
