Monday Dread





You know how usually on Sunday evenings, you get that feeling in the back of your gut?  The Monday dread?  You gotta wake up and be at work by 8 a.m. tomorrow morning dread?  I am so happy to say that I am enjoying a Sunday afternoon free of Monday-dread.   Here's to the retired life... yippee, thank you Lord.


Although my new job is going to require a little bit more "on-call/overtime" work, I am muy excited.  


So, our sweet, wonderful, next-door neighbors built us an amazing window seat for Henry.  Paul & Eileen live right next door to us and have treated us like their own.


storm windows a little dirty- please excuse.

 Paul retired about two years ago but keeps his engineering mind & hands a-go with various projects and we are so moved that he made this chest/window seat for us.  It was made out of salvaged oak from an old house near here.  



It will be perfect for hiding little Henry away (just kidding).

That seat is awesome! Henry will enjoy pulling out all his books, trucks, and blocks from his window seat! What a keepsake!

It is rare to find neighbors like the ones you have. What a huge blessing to your family. The seat looks great! You gotta love more storage.

The sign is awesome. Does the chest have one of those new-fangled slow-close hinges on it?

No, I don't think it has a slow-hinge on it. Maybe I should get one? or incorporate one somehow?
