The Daily Shoot #552, Make a picture of something glass today.

I love the sunny look of this window. 
It sits atop the "BOYS" entrance of the Old Center School in Woodbridge.
The building now houses several town offices and departments.
Center Building (Old Center School), Woodbridge CT Woodbridge, our neighbor to the south, is the town in which I work.  
I walk through the beautiful town center - from the fire house to the town hall - several times a week.  
It's such a pretty place!

Ah, yes.  
It's all glamor around here.
I was busy working on a project last night with a "do not disturb" order in place.  Paul was out at a meeting.  Annie discovered a surprise in the playroom and personally, I think she handled the situation expertly.  Instead of alerting me, she covered it with a rag towel and left a note for her dad.
Turns out it wasn't the dog after all. 
It was the cat!
(Who had puked in the morning too - and which, for the record, I cleaned up!)
Never a dull moment in paradise.

I'm a sucker for a good sign!
I found this one taped to the front door at 10:45pm last night when I returned home from a meeting at work.
Emma has lost two teeth in as many nights.  
I was home for the first one, but not last night's.  
She wanted to be sure I didn't miss the news!
The "o's" in tooth and the dot of the exclamation point are especially impressive .
I love these days!
