Last night I was happily sleeping away, and at about 1am in the stillness of the hot summer night (with the windows open) there came the sound of a bullhorn:
"THIS IS THE POLICE. WE HAVE THE HOUSE SURROUNDED. COME OUT WITH YOUR HANDS UP!"
then a pause of say a minute, and...
"WE'RE NOT LEAVING. COME OUT WITH YOUR HANDS UP! (address of a nearby house given) WE HAVE THE HOUSE SURROUNDED!"
(insert amplified weeooooo siren sound here)
This was taking place just across the alley behind us. An apparent standoff involving a man with a gun. Funny thing, the police don't just bust down the door and wrap things up like on TV, so this racket continues for at least a couple of hours. Crud.
Anyhoo, so today I stopped at the cake and candy making shop on the way home and picked up a couple of molds, so it's more bath bombs. Witch hazel instead of water, no borax, and lavender scent.
The shape of these pleases me ever so! Now if I just could take a nice cool bath I would fall to sleep this instant.
