I Can See Clearly Now

Because we have a house that was built in 1961, we have storm windows.  Storm windows provide great insulation but are hard to clean.  And they provide a great place for spiders to build webs and collect small trinkets.  

We've lived in our house about 10 years.  And altho I've cleaned the windows on the inside and outside, I've never cleaned the in between part.  Because I didn't know how.  And because there are shrubs and bushes that would've made it painful.  And to be honest, I just didn't realize how great the outside world could look!

Recently, one of my neighbors  had her windows cleaned before her holiday party.  When I was at her house I noticed how great they looked.  So I asked for the number of the window cleaning company.

Now it's as if we've gone from viewing the outside world in black and white to technicolor!!  Or from watching a TV with bunny ears, to a HD television!

Here is a photo of before we got our windows cleaned:

And after:

I will never wait so long to have my windows cleaned again!

The one thing that brings me down the most is when my windows are dirty - both in my house and in my car. I just love clean windows and Wow! what a difference.

Oh I love me a clean window! It's like a facelift for the whole room, don't you find? Sorry for being a stranger lately - hope you and your hubby had a lovely holiday season! And how are those puppies? :) xo
