My new job is going wonderful! There is a giant Beech tree in the playground and some Maples growing along the fence. I find that the Montessori philosophy is something that I have loosely followed all along without realizing that I was doing things in a Montessori way.
We have all but four of our new windows installed. It is a slower process than I would have liked but they are moving along.
This is the kitchen window in my mum’s house downstairs but ours looks similar. The trim still needs to be replaced in all of the windows. Hopefully, that will be done soon.
Because we live in a historic district all home improvements must be approved by the historical committee and there were a limited number of windows to choose from. I just love them and am looking forward to seeing them finished!
On Monday morning I stopped at the muffin shop for a muffin and a cup of coffee before work. I sat on the bench just outside the shop to eat, sip, and enjoy the view of the old Episcopal church on the narrow lane. I am taking advantage of my later work day start and my shorter commute.
As you can see I saved the best for last. I spent Friday night with my granddaughter while my daughter and son-in-law were away at a Willie Nelson concert. She cried a bit…and then we settled down in a rocking chair on the deck and watched the wind rustle the Oak leaves in a very tall tree above us. She slept all curled up to me in my daughter’s bed. I slept…well off and on… waking often to stare at her absolute awe!
My daughter and son-in-law have moved into their new house! They spent a week or so cleaning it and began the move in process on Saturday. It has two beautiful old fireplaces. I spent Saturday helping with clean up and child care duty.
