My random happy thoughts turn to gratitude I feel for Husband #2 and our basement windows.
This past spring, Husband #2 and I replaced all of the old basement windows with new glass block units. Aside from the increased energy efficiency and better security, our glass block windows let in a lot of light.
Husband #2 carefully cemented each window in place as I held it level and plumb, kneeling on a bed of cardboard and plywood he placed on the wet ground so I wouldn’t get muddy. He figured out a way to fit standard windows into the existing brick exterior opening. The installation was one of our joint home improvement projects that I loved completing with him.
Yesterday’s sunshine was streaming in at just the right angle. The basement was filled with wonderfully beautiful light.
Doing the laundry was a joy.
