I was standing at the kitchen window the other day as I usually do, watching the birds feed on the back porch and the sunlight filtering through the trees. But then my vision switched from gazing through the windows to focusing on the windows.
The curtains were dusty and there was dirt and grime in the corners of each window pane. It was pretty, darn nasty. I immediately threw off those curtains and tossed them in the laundry. Then I attacked the dirt by spraying on cleaner and letting it sit for awhile before I scrubbed it. This week I'm planning on getting some high-gloss white paint and touching up the window sill. Now the view isn't the only thing that is pretty about my windows! Yay!
