poor bird

My wake up call at 7:45 brought me scones and cappuccinos. Jake hasn't gotten up that early in years! ha! Isn't he sweet?! This is great living in the same city!

While sipping our cappuccinos we decided that my windows were really pathetic and needed a good cleaning. This was not an easy task. There were six sliding glass windows that needed to be removed and both sides were caked in a fine layer of dirt. I tired everything but nothing satisfied me. They were still dirty.

Conventional window cleaners having nothing compared to a home remedy of white vinegar, water and newspaper...my windows now sparkle streak free. A bird actually just smashed into my window. Poor bird.

You must have done a good job on those windows! Birds flying into them is always a good sign of great cleaning. Glad to hear things are going well in Iowa. What a great guy you have there...does he give lessons?

How funny... my mom and grandma used that too. I just swipe it with windex and if that doesn't get it, oh well... I'm saving the life of a bird. hehehe

How great it is, the high from living in a place where your sweetie is and being happy in your heart!

Oh la la! Breakfast in bed with Jake! - Nice

I've had a Bluejay hit our large picture window before... it left 2 little white feathers at that spot of impact. Bird was stunned for a second but flew away.
