We built our new house directly in front of the old. The two roofs in fact overlap about a foot. The plan from the start was to remove the old house when we moved into the new. In the last weeks as we look out of the massive, round dining room window (and the kitchen as well) in the new house we see little more than the old house, looking sadder all the time. But that will soon change. Tomorrow as we sit for supper I'm looking forward to a different scene out those new windows.
I'm looking forward to the view from my window.
