The Perks

One is to enjoy the company of my grandchildren. Secondly seeing the lovely face of the youngest one- M5. She is quite a doll. Thirdly TJ (the one boy in the family of six siblings) makes exaggerated dance moves which are funny to watch. There is the annoyance too, when he tries to squeeze M5’s forearm. She SCREAMS, while he CLAIMS she enjoys it.

I share the room with three of them — TJ, M4 and M5. Nola has a compact home. Nola had not thought of moving to it initially. It was too small for her family needs. When trouble started brewing in the form of blocked plumbing in her rented home, and the owner was slow in responding, it did the trick. Nola and FJ (her husband) decided to move to their present home, which they had bought earlier for renting.

Every nook, and cranny has a bookcase crammed with books.

Even my first efforts at water colors have found a place at her walls too.
