As I mentioned in my last post, we don't have working AC at this time. We also have very few downstairs windows that open. That makes for a pretty stuffy house! Andy wanted to work on our car today(it is leaking oil profusely), but after looking it over he determined the parts that he needed to get off were not going to come off easily. He sprayed the car parts with whatever it is he sprays on there (its really stinky is all I know), and we decided to work on the windows.
The windows were painted shut, and I'm assuming they have been that way for quite some time. However, they came open fairly easy. Andy was not amused with my picture taking...
We even got our balcony doors open! They did not want to shut and Andy spent well over an hour getting them closed. We probably won't be opening them often, but at least they sort of work. They kids were thrilled with the balcony and sat and watched us, waiting not so patiently to get a turn to go on the balcony.
It rained off and on all day, but just a light rain. We opened all the windows and the house felt wonderful!
