Windows

No, I'm not talking Microsoft here! Mark mentioned in a comment last Friday about ice building up on windows. Coincidentally, I had already taken these pics the morning it was -23°. These first three were what I saw when I raised the pleated shades in our living room that morning. Cool (well, literally, too) designs, huh?

I took these next two of our bathroom window, where there's more humidity.

Below is the view from my sewing room window... before the last blizzard. Now the snow is packed even higher against the window, and I can barely see the sky. Yuck.

I need to get the new paintings that Jess 'n Alex gave me for Christmas hung on the wall in there so I have something nicer to look at. I should've had them hang 'em before they left... that should've been part of the gift, don'tcha think? ;-) It was such a crazy weekend, though, that we really didn't have time for that sort of thing, I guess. So maybe if I'd quit doing so many snowy blog posts, I'd get something else done. Anyway, I love them and can't wait to show them to you! To describe them in a word, Cindy and JHRME, I'd say COLOR! (In case anyone wonders, they're not painted by Jess.)

Color...hmmmm. Can't wait to see them. And yes, hanging them should have been included in the gift.

Becky said...

Is that frost outside the window - I hope!!!!

Grandma G said...

Inside, Becky.

JHRME said...

Oooho! I love color! Just to clarify...are these taken from inside?!

Grandma G said...

Yes, they were taken from inside the house, and the frost was on the inside of the windows. (Just for the record, the snow is on the OUTSIDE of my sewing room window. ;) )

JHRME... just ask Mark... I'm sure he'll be glad to enlighten you. ;)
