…helping put replacement windows in our house. It’s a lot of work and I’m pretty much drained by the end of the day. The demolition part makes a huge mess and then after they’re in they’ve got to be cleaned (of course this revealed a few with defects, which will need to be replaced). I was away yesterday morning when the guy got started and by the time I was got home he’d already put most of the windows in place. I didn’t know it would go so fast. I was hoping to get all the iron weights and pulleys out of the old windows before they got boxed in forever. Today I managed to get 12 of them and some hardware. The gentleman thought I was nuts for keeping then but then I hopped on eBay and confirmed that yes, there’s a market for everything, including window weights! There’s probably a market for the old wavy glass from the old windows, too. Hopefully the more energy efficient replacements will translate into lower fuel bills when cold weather comes around again.
I checked Mrs. House Finch’s nest today. There are five eggs now :)
