I have a Confession to make...
I am SO bad.
There's this evil, little part of me,
deep down inside, that just can't resist the temptation
of pulling something over on someone. At least once in a while!
Several people commented, on yesterday's post, that they heard a bell tinkling but couldn't find the source. After looking all over the rooms that they were in, a few decided that it must be the 'comment sheep' in my side bar. She wears a bell on her collar and perhaps that is the culprit making the noise.
Not the sheep.
Good guess though.
The truth is, I did unto you, what was done unto me.
While blog browsing, the other day, I too heard a gentle bell chiming. I heard it several times before I began to wonder where the sound was coming from. I looked around my office. Then I looked around my office again. Still couldn't determine the source of the ringing.
Not that it was an unpleasant sound. In fact, it was a soft, gentle sound. Like wind chimes, barely stirring in the summer breeze. One of my cats wears a collar with a bell on it and she was sitting on my computer desk. (I suspect that she was rather amused by my frantic searching, every time I heard that bell ringing.) I wiggled the bell on her collar, several times, to see if it was making the noise. A completely different sound.
After several minutes (that seemed like MUCH longer) of looking all over my office, I finally found the source of the 'tinkling'. It was located on the sidebar of the blog I was reading (sorry ~ I can't remember which one it was!) and was a wind chime!
As I've already stated, I love wind chimes. In fact, I have several in my house and a big one out by the sheep barn. When ever I hear the gentle music of the one in my dining room, I think of "fairy dust" being magically sprinkled about my home. I know ~ it sounds silly ~ but that's what I think!
I had to laugh at myself and my frantic searching for the source of the delicate sound so decided that I would add a wind chime to my blog as well. And hide it, WAY down on my sidebar. I know. I'm bad. I'm apparently one of those wicked people who take pleasure in eliciting reactions from people ~ even when I won't be there to see the reaction.
But, it was such fun when you started to leave comments about hearing a bell ringing...
Have a wonderful day!
