Peace...Whoosh!...and Peace Once Again...

I woke up today at the ungodly hour of 5AM, and just could not fall back to sleep, so I got up, made coffee, tidied up the house and read "Warm Springs", a wonderful, engrossing book written by a woman who, as a ten year old child, lived at the Georgia facility for polio patients in the early 1950's.

Relaxing out on the quiet, sunlit deck...and just as I was reaching the end of the book....I heard a loud crack and the unmistakable...whoosh...of a large branch falling away from our ash tree, which is RIGHT over the window of the greenhouse. Luckily, the branch missed the window and just nicked the roof a bit. What a way to begin an otherwise peaceful morning!
What a Way to Start the Day
The rest of the day followed smoothly, with Tess having her own music lessons, as well as teaching four of her six piano students. We had a nice visit with the mother of two of her students, who are fellow homeschoolers, and we finally finished trimming the fruit trees, which now look wonderful.

Tess managed to capture a beautiful, peaceful sunset at the end of our day.

That's all for today.
