There are these huge hideous shrubs that line our East-facing windows. They’re so ghastly that I suspect they’ve never been trimmed in all their plant-lives. The one thing that’s pleasant, besides being an excellent window shade while it still has leaves, are the birds that perch outside our window. It’s usually a crowd of overweight sparrows, but occasionally we get a cute little Chickadee or a bright red Cardinal.
The part I’m really digging now is a corner of our dining room with the newest addition of our house: Devin’s grandmother’s former sheet music shelf. It used to house piano music while Devin’s grandmother was still alive, and for a while it was banished to the Edmonds’ garage for being useless and taking up space. Now it has a new home, ours, and it pays its rent by shelving all our miscellaneous crap (as well as look very handsome)!
