I’m waiting for the stars to shine.

Have you ever woken up suddenly in the dead of the night and it is so dark that you can’t find the door to get out of the room? I live at the top of a mountain.

  • All of us don’t have any streetlights to supply you light in the house.

There are huge trees all around the house, so think that even the sun has a rough time getting into the house. On cloudy mornings when the moon is waning, the night can be as dark and black as ink. There is no seeing outside, and the inside of the apartment is almost black. I was never one to be out in the dark. Even the rustling of leaves can cause me to start. . When our gas furnace started making weird noises, it surprised me. I couldn’t remember ever hearing these noises before. It wasn’t only the sounds coming from the gas furnace that had me on edge, however when the old oil furnace turned on. I could hear the water begin to boil, or whatever it does inside the tank. I knew that if our husband was home, I wouldn’t bother with the sounds of the sizzling water heater, or the natural gas furnace. When he is home, I know that he will take care of anything that might be happening. Now that he is gone for a week, I am minding the sounds. I’m wondering now if I should call the Heating and Air Conditioning supplier in the morning and have them look at the noises in the gas furnace. Maybe I should call them now, instead of waiting until the morning? I don’t want to wake up to a chilly house, however I’m also not sure if I should pay the very upscale price they’ll ask for after minutes visits.
