OK, so let's recap. We moved in here October of '06 full of excitement at all the fixing we'd do to our fixer-upper. You can find before photos here and here. If you've been reading for a while you know the really big projects we've tackled. But the whole time we've really, really, needed new windows. I've posted pictures of them before but just for giggles here are some more.
This is the window in the girl's room. You can see the condensation in between the panes. I've shown them frozen before but they're just cold all winter and really hot in the summer. If you touch the metal in the hot months when the sun is beating down on them you can actually burn your hand.
Pretty, huh?Here's the gaping hole in my kitchen...it was 30 degrees outside. My feet were cold but it's always cold in the house.
And presto, chang-o, we have a new window. It took him a lot longer to get the window out than it did to get the new one in. See the little blue cat prints? That happened the last time I painted. The cats love to sit up there but I don't think they're going to have room anymore since the new window is so much wider than the old one.
I'd like to get a better picture but it's actually kind of hard to get one. It's cloudy outside so the flash won't come on since the camera thinks I'm taking a picture of something outside.
Travis stayed home with me today and I'm very thankful. The installer seems very nice but the thought of me staying here all day with a guy I don't know made me uncomfortable. And, so, as a reward I made french toast with whipped cream and berries and bacon. I was going to make eggs too but he got full. It was nice to feel Martha Stewart-y this morning.
