Little dutch girl

I'm thankful I finally figured out how to plug the leaks in my bedroom window after a day filled with mopping up water with a truckload of towels! Of course, after using an entire box of rope caulk, my window frame now looks like a kindergartner's art project:) But I don't care -- I'm warm and dry and that makes me happy. I'm also grateful that there are professionals coming in the morning to fix it properly!


  1. Ah, the joy of home ownership!

  2. Kara, go to They have lots of pretty pink. It's super easy to change-no HTML.

    Haha! If you lived close, Lee could have come over & fixed that for you. Professional-like. Glad you plugged it up. That's miserable to be cold with all that wet yuckiness.

  3. VL that video is hysterical!! That's pretty much how I cook too:)

    Lisa, thanks for the info about the blog pages, I'll check it out. And I wished we lived closer too...for that and many more reasons!

  4. An update: the leaks are fixed! And the professional praised my ingenuity in the interim, so I felt pretty proud:)
