I wasn’t myself today. I felt overwhelmed at work because I was trying to get a large project finished at my desk, which is in the school office in the center of everything. I’m putting together our school directory and it’s full of advertising and is extremely time-consuming. I even snapped at two of our parents.
I didn’t mean to and I hate when I do that. (But better them than the children!)
It wasn’t until I drove up the driveway and arrived home that I began to really feel better. An e-mail from a friend made me really smile. Hi, Alisa! (She noticed I wasn’t myself today).
And tea always helps. I sat outside and chatted with my husband for a bit and then came in to get the camera. And as I walked through the dining room, I remembered that I’d wanted to show you the jar I acquired over the weekend.
I bought it in the gift shop at one of the garden centers nearby. I fell in love with the colors when I first saw it over a month ago. It’s very autumnal.
And all the embellishments are very interesting, as well. I love that old-fashioned writing. And that date. This house had already been standing for a hundred years in 1869. Well, half of it had, anyway.
The new addition was put on in 1810. To find out more about the house (it isn’t much, really), visit the tab on my sidebar, entitled “About the House”.
I do have some questions for you today. I hope you’ll play along.
