Screens



This is the view outside of my computer room window.  I've taken photos of this view before, but I've had to hold the camera over my head and shoot the photo through the top portion of the window.   The top of the window doesn't have a screen, but the window also doesn't get cleaned from the outside.  This photograph however, is through an open window!  I finally got the screen out of the window.  I haven't been working on that every day, but I have been working on it.  I didn't want to bend the screen because for safety issues, the screen needs to go back in, but I wanted to be able to take it out so I could have a clear shot out of my window.  That darned thing was very stubborn.

One of the drawbacks to living in a condo in Florida is that everything is screened in.  It's nice for keeping the bugs out and for keeping birds off the patio, but the world through the windows is only seen through a screen.  Also, it is incredibly difficult to wash these screens.  The patio screens don't come out, as they are floor to ceiling and the window screens are just a bear to remove. 

I'm a Michigan girl that is really used to cloudy skies, but...I've gotten very fond of the sunshine of Florida.  Most of my windows are covered in sheers to keep the blazing sun from heating the up the house, but my computer room is open to the sunshine.  It brightens up that whole corner of the condo and besides, it has a nice view of the retention pond/lake with the fountains and the towers.  I'm not quite sure what those towers are for, but I like them.

Expect to see more photos out of that window, now that I have an unobstructed view.  

I hope you have a great day!

I've been looking for a NaBloPoMo blog for about an hour now and haven't found one yet that I want to feature - so before I miss my midnight deadline, I'm going to post this now and keep looking for a blog to recommend (for tomorrow)

What a beautiful view! That's the one and only complaint I have about our new home; we don't have enough windows. The garage has windows - don't ask me why! But 2 of the bedrooms have only one window when they could have two. And come to think of it.

That is a beautiful view. We never open windows because of my asthma so they could all come down!

Nothing beats a great view and sunshine!
