The skies were grey and misty all day on Thanksgiving.
Here and there families had set up tables for outdoor eating on their patios and I could see them talking as I walked past. By the time I turned toward home it was dark but the streets were quiet and still.
I came home from work noticed the Christmas lights in both my mum’s and my apartments. Even the lady who lives on the third floor has gotten into the spirit. It looked so pretty. The picture doesn’t do it justice.
Have you noticed that people seem to be decorating early this year? I’ve seen Christmas trees in quite a few windows as well. It’s very cheery.
We have been using flowers in our curriculum this week.
One of our Montessori “works” is a try with a pitcher of water, small glass vases, and some cut flowers.
The children have been making arrangements and setting them on the windowsills.
This is particularly sweet as their parents cannot come into the classroom but instead stand on the deck just at the window where the vases are set so they get to see some of what we do during the day while they wait for us to bring them their child.
Pink poinsettia! I just discovered these last year and I love them! And they are real!
