The Friday Five Good Things

Five good things that happened this week

1. Took the annual trip to Old Mystic Village with Red. Wandered in an out of shops, bought a few trinkets, and had a nice lunch.

2. Broke out the gilding

3. Pouring rain and the electricity went out. Yikes! Electric company had the power on within an hour.Whew! No water in the basement, and we could flush the toilet

4. Met a sweet little boy to introduce him to calligraphy. His aunt told me he loves art and she thought he might enjoy working with letters while helping him to strengthen his fine motor skills. He's autistic, wasn't very verbal, but could follow along. We worked with a marker and spent some time writing out his name. Look what an awesome job he did!

5. Weird warm weather. Still trying to hang out in the sun room before closing it for the season.

How was your week?


  1. Any pictures of Mystic? One of my fondest memories is being stranded in Mystic during a blizzard!

    1. Sorry, Robin. We were too busy poking around the shops and didnt take any pictures

  2. WOW! Your autistic student sounds amazing! The ability some of these kids have is simply astounding to me! Considering that even some of the more "high functioning" autistic individuals with such abilities are not able to function socially. Their brains are definitely like no other and from what I have read about them so far, the medical field can not completely explain exactly HOW their minds truly do work.

    Thank you for sharing this with me, CJ!
