The other night I happened to look out the window and saw something weird and vaguely unnverving. It was something tall and silvery and I know there's nothing like that out there normally. I worried me enough to wake my sister and ask her if she could see it too which she did. She went downstairs and took a look through the window down there and said it didn't look the same there but it had to be a combination of our trashcan and some tufts of high grass. I knew it had to have something to do with our trashcan, but I still don't know what caused the optical illusion. Odd.

Today, my sister thegreenring and I took my son into town on his own for the very first time. Since he has an appointment with the dentist next week, I wanted to take the twins separately into town to get used to being apart. This time we went to the toy shop to buy presents for their birthday next week and we also went to another shop. Salt was a little quiet and pensive as if he was wondering what had happened to his sister, but he only complained a little when we got on the bus to go back home. I had to stand next to the buggy for a while to reassure him. Pepper was asleep back home and didn't seem to notice that her brother was gone for a while. If she reacts the same way when I take her into town, I'm sure they'll both be ok at the dentist's.
