I’m sitting here gazing out the window, waiting for the plumber. It’s 8:20. The Phillies are up and – surprise – winning, and the score is 2 – 0. But I can’t concentrate on the game and I’m starting to think Walt may not show. I suppose I should not have said it’s not an emergency. I guess I should not have given him the option that Thursday or Friday would be fine. I forgot to value my time. Duh! Now I’ve done a bunch of housework- no fun , when I could have been out shopping or riding my bike or doing something other than boring housework – and still have shut off valves that are stuck. I guess I learned a lesson. I guess tomorrow’s another day.
THERE’S STILL NO ONE AT THE DOOR. It’s 8:30. Should I give up the ghost?
These are some of my windows. I don’t get out much – thanks to Walt! Click here to visit Lingeringvisions and a look at or through more windows.
At least your windows are beautiful!
Well thank you so very much. Cleaning them was not part of the housework. Ha!
I love how the window with the flower petal shape shows the flag outside. Tricky. The cat, less tricky, but gorgeous. Walt – possible a slacker….
I shot the flag fifteen times before it sat still! I knew you’d notice it. That makes it worth the time spent. Walt is really a good plumber. I should never have given him such a wide berth. My mistake. Won’t happen again. 😉
With the door, you’ve taken something nice and made it beautiful. It’s so dark inside (an illusion, I know) that there’s no competition for the light shining through the door panels. So you could’ve been riding your bike, but your time wasn’t wasted photographing these windows.
Thank you, Trish. The darkness kind of adds something I think. (I hope!)
… maybe we’ll get to see Walt arriving another time out of your ‘windows’ Gemma !
Let’s hope you’re all fixed now .
Not yet, poppy. I’m figuring tonight. 😉 then it’s bathroom renovation time!
Lovely view from your windows, Gemma. I hope the plumber eventually arrived. It’s not great to be housebound, waiting for a tradesman to show up.
Today’s another day. Maybe today. But I’m getting stuff done around the house, so, it’s only half bad. But I will be less lackadaisical about firming up the appointment next time. Ugh!
forgetting the waiting, making instead a wonderful photo from the stained glass oval window of your front door = good idea!
Thanks, frizz. Good point of view from our guitar man. Love it!
Made me smile.
That’s a good thing!
Oh Missy did nt know we had such great windows . You make every day beautiful 😃
love the door window., for a minute there thought you were in Ecuador.. manana = tomorrow or better yet “not now” so you actually aren’t sure when people will show. Have to be very specific on day and time and still it’s a 50 – 50 on whether or not they appear 🙂
This was my fault. I left it open since it wasn’t an emergency. Live and learn. (I’m just getting myself ready for Equador! Haha!)
This post really accentuates your talent, not just as a photographer but as a writer.
Hope Walt finally showed up.
Thanks! I appreciate your compliment. 🙂 I always wanted to write, but I can’t come up with enough material 😦
You’re kind to say so, though.
WordPress has been cheating me- I missed these! I like your house, Gem. Funnily enough, last night I was wandering round mine and snapping a few. 🙂
Right under your nose. Right? I’ll be looking for that post. Thanks, Jo. Hope the foot is better. xoxo G
Well, the toe didn’t fall off yet, Gem, but I’ve seen better-looking toenails. Just wish I could find the same colour varnish for the other nails. 🙂
Thanks for asking.
Very beautiful windows, Gem.
Thank you, Bente. 🙂
