We had a real yucky w/e
I had hoped
since it was going to be  warm
we'd get some yard clean up
no such luck

On our way home from store
we noticed our neighbor putting items
out to the curb
She is cleaning out her Mom's
old house and told us
if we see anything we want
to go ahead and take it

My eyes went right to some old doors
I have hated our back door
since we moved here
I'm not sure why I don't like it
I think its the window
The glass is very thin and
I'm always afraid it'll break

This new door is more like the other  panel doors
in the house
Now you have to use your imagination
to see what it'll be like

Now I am waiting for the Spring so I can take it outside
 and get it stripped and stained
