in more ways than one.
Yesterday I was removing old glazing from a window and broke one of the panes. No big deal, I still have one or 2 more I can put in. I put them with the glazing points. Now if only I knew where they were. I've searched every place I can think of, twice even. James has also spent some time looking for them. He says I hid them real well.
Glass and glazing points are cheap but it still bothered me to have to buy more, which I did. I thought maybe if I bought more they'd turn up. They haven't yet.
Last night we slept with that pane missing and I wondered if we'd find a bird or bat or something in our house this morning but we didn't. I want to replace 2 other panes that are really scratched. I had to decide if I wanted scratched panes that were the old wobbly glass, which I love, or have new ones with no character but we could see out better. I'm gong with the new. I better get to work.
I hired someone today to do our 6 upstairs windows. A neighbor of ours was in the hospital this weekend after falling off his roof. I think I'll stick with the lower level. I can't trust myself to remember I'm standing on a roof and not the ground.
Edit: I posted this 15 minutes ago and since then have found the panes and points in a very logical place - right behind the apples in the downstairs kitchen.
