Here I sit at my desk. Behind me is a sliding glass door leading to my sunporch. Hubby is working night shift and I am alone in the house, except for my dog and 2 cats. The dog is sleeping in the living room, there is a cat beside me, and I’m almost positive the other cat is in the house.

What, then, is making the noises in the sunporch? It is unheated, and it’s cold outside, but I leave the outside door of the sunporch open so the animals can go in and out - I let them out of the house through the sliding door and they zip outside, do their business and come back in the same way - through a hole in the screen door. Obviously the sunporch is not very secure, because I have heard a couple of thumps and bangs in the past few minutes. I got up and looked out, but can see nothing out of the ordinary.  

I’m no coward, but it’s darned cold out there, so I have no intention of going out to find out what’s banging around out there! Think I’ll go to bed.... and yes, I just might pull the covers over my head!

    • I live and sleep alone, except for my 2 dogs.... I figure they will alert me if something is seriously wrong. Just have to keep the faith and clear my mind of “scary” thoughts....  otherwise I would never get any sleep!

    • I’ve been hearing noises here and there too.  It’s probably either a rodent or a squirrel that has come down through my Chimney.  It’s could also be ants.  They can move mountains when in large groups.  tongue out
