Cookies for coconuts

Our kitchen windows are along the walkway the Elders use to go into their apartment.  Here's how we exchange things... Elder Stott on the left and Elder Iheanacho on the right.  This evening when the Elders came home Elder Stott said he could smell the cookies I was making as they came in the front gate.  When they got around to the back (where these windows are), he called out "I smell happiness!"  We gave them cookies thru the window and a few minutes later they came back, slid it open and gave us a coconut with a cute little face.  Great exchange!

Broken windows

Last Saturday the wind blew really hard.  Some of our windows came unlatched and swung open hard which broke some of the window panes.  With rain blowing in we tried to cover them from the outside but just succeeded in Elder Schlehuber getting drenched.  Yesterday we were able to arrange for some workmen to come and repair the windows.  The glass is cut too large for the opening so the workman grinds the glass against the concrete to shape it.

Once the glass fits, it is held in place with putty.
