That was the refrain for the 15-minute journey to school this morning. (Yes, we did have a bit of snow last night.) While most students are enjoying a winter break, my youngest grandson, aka the baby grand, had only Presidents' Day off. His is an intensive school where he is learning so much and doing very well.
As we arrived, a shy little girl was sitting quietly waiting for the classroom doors to open. Jake was having none of that. He said, "Good morning, Sharla (name changed), how are you?" She smiled at him and he responded more loudly, "GOOD MORNING, SHARLA, HOW ARE YOU?" She shrank back to the wall. I suggested that he pipe down as he was making Sharla nervous. He walked over and leaned into her face and smiled very big. Sharla smiled a wee smile back. I suggested allowing Sharla some space and took him quietly to his seat. When I looked back, Sharla was beaming at us. Space — it's a good thing. This school teaches these sorts of things in addition to regular classroom topics.
Since I was driving by anyway, I decided to stop and pick up a few things. My pantry may not always be full, but the pets must have food. And it's nice to have fruit in the house.
I also wanted to shop for my own gift. I really want a steam cleaning system for the floors. I am tired of mopping and having my hands in water wringing a mop. I mean this is the 21st Century! Do any of you have a good recommendation? I have been checking online and many steamers get a bad rap. Biss*ll comes out pretty good. I'd really like to have one that does more than one thing — not only floors, but also showers, drapes, and upholstery. So if you have a suggestion for me, please share. I'm all ears.
Now I must be off to bathe the dog. Such exciting times at the Haven.
A good Wednesday to you...
