I’ve spent several hours over the last two days building fake window pane dividers for the French doors in Rob’s future office. (Right now they lead out to nothing, the balcony is gone.) So, I was installing them. When I took the old fake dividers out, the glass wasn’t really attached to much of anything. It wobbled a lot. So I knew I’d have to replace the glass soon.
But I installed my little framework I built, it fit so nicely and it looked pretty. I closed the door, and the whole thing fell out, landing on the patio one floor down. It was spectacular to watch. I never saw so much broken glass.
I patched the hole, spent an hour cleaning up glass (my framework survived!) and went to Home Depot to look at French doors. But I think I’m just going to call a window guy on Monday to replace both windows.
At least Rob finished painting the outside of the picket fence. It looks very nice. tomorrow he’s going to paint the inside.
In other news, we took a long bike ride down the beach and up the Los Angeles River trail, more than 20 miles. Pretty long for me, I’ve been riding but only very short rides. I was kind of pathetic, very slow, but I made it. I hope I’ll be okay on our upcoming bike trip. I figure I’ll be hurtin’ but I’ll survive.
