Yesterday I took down the dusty bedroom curtains and threw them in the wash. Then I observed the condition of the window sill and edges of the window panes. They're normally behind the curtains and easy to ignore.
But they're also original to the house, been there baking in the sun and absorbing condensation at intervals since the mid 1940s. I got some sandpaper and sanded and vacuumed the dust and wiped.
Then I put down coats of tung oil to protect the wood again. It's weird to have no curtains in the bedroom, makes the room feel like a public space, rather than my room.
Oh Good LORD.
