Talking about Windows…

It was with sweet and sourness that I saw the windows go up in the bell tower. I knew that they would be soon in coming, but I had dreams of stained glass and beautiful old style windows. Therefore, when they started to install them yesterday, I was saddened by the window installed…

I guess we take what we can get, but my granddad would have said, “If you can’t do it right, then don’t do it at all!”

Modernization takes its toll on everything it seems…

They open at the bottom and top main panel. They are not terrible, but I just had a different image of what a church window should be and that means it is my issue not theirs. I do know that they are weather tight and will be good against the Russian winter. We have them on our flat back in Moscow…

What it all does mean is that the renovation of the bell tower is progressing and I hope that this summer the roof gets but on the top and they start to rebuild the wings on the tower. They also have to get a real bricklayer up here to repair the brick work. I hope they do not skimp in that territory…

Now that I have griped a little bit about them, they really are okay and I am glad they got them done. This monastery is looking better all the time…

By golly, I think they are serious about this place…
