With the recent renovations certain ghostly occurances have been taking place once again in the Major household. Both Mr. Major and I have come to terms with the idea of another occupant in the guest room, and for the most part we leave it go on its ghostly way and for a long time things have quieted down. During the Christmas season we moved our dogs crate into the guest room to keep him calm while we had our feast downstairs. Pretty much the entire time he was up there he was and in the following days he would bark for no apparent reason, so we eventually moved him back downstairs.
A few weeks after that we began to refinish the floors in that room. We started closing the door to keep the pets out when we weren't working in there, but in the morning we would find the door was open. So we started firmly wedging the door closed with a sock but the next morning the door would be open and the sock would be several feet away from the door.
Last Tuesday I was sitting downstairs watching TV when I herd what sounded like moving upstairs. (Directly upstairs from the TV room is the guest room). I wrote it off as the cats chasing each other but it continued on so I went upstairs to check on them but none of the animals were in the guest room. So I wedged the door closed and went back downstairs. Not five minutes later the noise started again, and so I checked again to find nothing. This went on the rest of the afternoon until I finally stopped checking and just accepted my ghost was having a good laugh on my part.
When we finally finished the floors I went in and snapped a few pictures so I could brag on my handy work but after reviewing them I noticed something weird. So I went back and snapped a few more pictures of the room and then a few more of the other rooms for good measure, but I couldn't recreate my original picture. You might have to click to enlarge the photo but I think it might be our ghost.
Typically I would write off something like this as dust but, I had just finished sealing the floor in this room, so any presence of dust had likely been paved over with three coats of polyurethane. Not to mention blue dust seems a bit rare.
Regardless I snapped a few pictures during the day with all of the new furniture in the room for your viewing pleasure.
Since the floors have been redone and the furniture replaced I figured things would quiet down again but no such luck. This bed was neatly made the night before, and the next morning this is what I found. (The door stayed shut all night and the cats were out as well.) So much for things quieting down.
Mr. Major and I ran into one of our neighbors this afternoon who told us she recently came across a picture of our home in the archives. She said we used to have palm trees in our front yard. She also gave us quite a bit of information on the previous owners that explained SO MUCH about the spotty work thats been done here. I am entirely giddy that we might find an actual picture of our home this week! Wish me luck!
