today i removed all the blinds in our living room. every window in our house has metal blinds. they are embedded between double panes. they open and close but don't lift. with some urging from aunt sue, i found that they were easier to remove than i had thought. so the first to go were the ones in the living room. ahhhhh. it is so much better to have an unimpeded view of the green world. next is the kitchen.
also today, uncle danny arrived. we took him to fridays after five where we ate gazpacho and listened to brazilian music.
