March 7 – Skylight in My House

March 7, 2023

One of the benefits of getting a new roof this week was that we also got a skylight out of the deal. This first picture was taken a little over a year ago when we moved into our house. The vented box on the ceiling was from a dinosaur of an evaporative cooler–long ago broken down–on our roof. I dreamed of a skylight window to take its place.

Fast forward, and we needed to replace our leaky roof, so it was the perfect time to get my skylight. It looked like this for a few days, while they finished the roof.

And now it looks like this! I’m delighted.

The light travels across the floors and walls of our living room in so many delightful ways.

And today the cotton ball clouds came into our house through this welcome window.
