It was the alarm company. My alarm had gone off! Oh No! So I got up and left the movie (leaving Shae with Katie, thank you Katie!) and started making phone calls. I called my neighbor to go over and check out the house and then I called Brian. He authorized the police to go our home and wanted me to leave immediately. I couldn't leave immediately, there were people there in the movie for Shae's birthday. So, I waited until the movie was over and then left very quickly (Sorry Katie for leaving so swiftly!)
I come home and find this:
And Yes, the worst part was my corn!
A hail storm hit our neighborhood and the hail beating against our garage window set the alarm off. Everything was fine in the home, most of the damage was the yard, specifically the garden. I was so crushed, that the wind and hail pulverized my garden. I just sit and stare at it. So, the rest of the afternoon we sulked and napped instead of getting ice cream and doing some birthday shopping.
I can say that the evening ended on a very HIGH note. My friend called me and told me that the Deseret Book had Handcart paper weights on sale and that I should run down there and get one. I was all set to go the next morning, when the door bell rang.
My friend brought me the paper weight as a gift. It is the most beautiful and exquisite thing I have ever seen.
It is 3 Dimensional and can be viewed on all sides. I cannnot believe the details on this little object! It is AMAZINGLY beautiful and totally made my day. Thank you, my friend! I owe you one!
