I didn't go out much this weekend, it was hot again and I wanted to get caught up on laundry etc. As part of a group taking care of a cemetery, I had to do some work there but other than that I was at home. Some of my friends were going out to a restaurant, it's not fancy but the food is delicious, they asked me to come along and so I did.
When I got back home I thanked them for the evening out and waved goodbye. As I was about to enter the house, I noticed an empty strawberry basket sitting on the bench of my deck. I found that strange, that was the only sign indicating someone was here. Did I miss a visitor, my car had been left in my yard, did they think I was sleeping or wouldn't answer the door. Why leave an empty strawberry basket, where are the strawberries? What happened to them, maybe they became angry waiting and ate them all.
I checked my email, text and phone but nobody left a message saying "we stopped by but no one was home". I text a few of my friends but none had been here. This will drive me crazy and I will probably never find out the answer. It also makes me feel uneasy to have someone walking around while I wasn't home. Here all weekend and the second I go away someone drops in... typical. Now why would they leave an empty basket.
