Yesterday I wrote about our new skylight, and then around 12:30 a.m. I woke up and, noticing the brightness of the full moon coming in my window, I went out to check out the skylight. I was welcomed with this site, so I decided to write part 2 today.
Speaking of skylights, I was reminded of a story from last spring. My children gave my husband a Skylight picture frame for his birthday gift. However, before it arrived, we had to leave on a six-week trip. Here is part of our text messages on his birthday, the day after we left.
After they told us it was a skylight frame, and we thought about it for a half a minute, we said to each other, “I wonder why they chose to get that?” “How did they know what size we’re going to need? We don’t even know yet.” “I wonder how big it will be? Will the post office be able to hold it for us?”
We were curious and wondered how that was going to work, but we figure we’d know eventually.
Later that month we saw our kids in Minneapolis and they explained to us it wasn’t a skylight frame, it was a Skylight picture frame! (We had never heard of such a thing!)
When we got home from our six-week trip, we discovered that, indeed, the Post Office could hold it for us. It wasn’t very big at all! Keith had fun pretending it was our real skylight frame and testing it out for size. Then he showed them he figured it out at last!
And speaking of that full moon, here it is rising this evening…
I am participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge: A slice a day for all of March. Thank you, Two Writing Teachers!
