A New Old Toy, Hard Working, A Different View

1. We had an indestructible slide stored in the weeds for years. It cleaned it up like new and we drove it to the grand kids' new house for their swing set. What other response should I have expected from a two-year-old other than, "Again! "Again!".
2. The guys worked hard to replace some windows and siding today. The humidity was at 95% and the temperature was 90°. You can imagine...and they never complained! I admire that.
3. The Halloween display at Lowe's with its orange lights, fire-filled pumpkin, and mechanical black cat fascinated the kids while their mother ran a quick errand. I'm re-honing my skills in The Art of Distraction. Singing a silly song, offering a cookie, or saying, "Oh look!" all serve the purpose. I have to remember that life slows way down for little ones. It's all about seeing things at their level. In doing so, I'm privileged to see things in a new perspective myself.


  1. New perspectives are good. Thanks for the reminder!

  2. It must be wonderful to be a grandmother. :) Lovely that you see their perspective.
