A few weeks ago, I finally got around to removing the pet door from my window into Libby’s former kennel. Thursday, I actually got around to cleaning the window, inside and outside. Wow! I can see through it! It is even worse if you consider that when I brought a tall, narrow chest home from Mother’s and stuck it in front of the tall, narrow window looking out into the kennel, it was 4 years ago. When I first put in the kennel in 2009, it was a lovely view of my garden spot, built out of necessity to maintain peace in the dog quarters, but that is a story that has been long told and long in the past.
Libby and I both enjoyed our little spot, but she has been gone a while now and it has not looked like this for years. But, I have plans to finish clearing it out and at least have a pleasant view out my window…now that there is not a chest in front of it and I can actually see through the window.
It began snowing at 6 last evening, and shortly after, electricity went off and on and then finally off. We sat in the living room with the candles lit for a couple of hours before it finally came back on but by then it was bedtime and still snowing–both cars were covered and it was still coming down. I was brushing my teeth when the electricity went off again, and I had to feel for one of the “emergency” flash light lanterns we keep in each room. [Yes, it happens a lot and we learned it is best to be prepared for it.] It is melting rapidly this morning in the full sun and clear blue sky…but at least I can see it through my clean window.
