September 3, 2003, at Montrésor, south of Saint-Aignan
Our old living room window is being replaced today. We've been talking about having a new window put in for about nine years. The old one dates from the 1960s and, while it is sort of charming and old-fashioned, it's not at all airtight.
This is the window that we are having replaced.
The new window will be double-glazed and better sealed, and it will protect us from the cold much more effectively. It won't have the old look, but it will be easier to clean. The installer should be here in about an hour. By afternoon, we'll have a new look and a new view.
