My granddaughter is recovering nicely after surgery to repair a cleft palate. For six weeks she has to wear braces on her arms so that she can’t bend her elbows to put anything into her mouth. They can be removed as long as some one is watching her and she’s only got four weeks left to go.
I came home from work on Friday to find that my brother and his fiancé, Larry and Heather, had left a gift for me on my coffee table…Mumpkins!
I put them in the front window and I see them when I walk into the house. So sweet.
One day at work I glanced out the window to close the blinds at nap time and noticed a giant praying mantis on the deck. I haven’t seen one in years.
I have been taking a class to become certified as a Montessori teacher. It is every Saturday from 8:00 to 5:00 and runs through June. We follow the academic calendar so if there is no school then we have the Saturday before off.
Still though….it’s a lot of Saturdays that I would rather be doing something else, even if it’s laundry.
The nice thing is that once I get there I really enjoy it.
On Sunday I spent the day with my grandchildren. My daughter and son-in-law were hosting a turkey dinner for a group of friends and everyone was helping to cut away some tree saplings from the fences along their property line.
I love being with them. It’s so inspiring to see how their group of friends help one another.
The windows in our apartment are finally done! Because the house is in old town Marblehead the owner had to get permission from the historical committee and the choices were limited. We love what they chose and they look so pretty! They are very efficient as well and that will help with our heating costs this winter.
