The view from my (boring and cold) window

Today I feel cold and alone

This topic suggestion, Find the nearest window…, is from The Daily Post as part of the Post-a-day writing challenge.

I must say, I probably have quite a boring window to be doing this from. My computer is in the spare room, which has a window that over looks our washing line, and beyond that is our neighbours house. However, there is something interesting about looking out this morning.

You see, today in Perth, it was very cold. Well, cold for Perth. We don’t get temperatures this cold very often, so we don’t know what to do when it gets this cold. The official minimum temperature was 1.4° Celcius. At Perth Airport, it got to 0.2° Celcius, and at Jandakot Airport (about a half hour south of Perth city) it was a freezing -0.4° Celcius. So when I look out my window, I see all the effects of a very cold morning on the grass. The dew on the grass makes it glisten and seem almost white. It is very clear, and seems like I could almost see for an eternity (if I didn’t have such a restricted view from my window.)

What can you see from your window? Do you have a better view than mine?

  1. North facing window to my sewing/computer room, looks out over the garden. I can see some yellow daisies and lavender, some big nasturtium leaves too. The sun is coming in and any minute now will reach under my desk and warm me up.

    1. You’ve been planning that window space for a while now so that it does look gorgeous. I think you’ve got a much more interesting (and inspiring) window than mine.
