My grandmother used to keep plants and candles on her windowsills. My mother kept seedlings on hers until they were ready to be planted in the ground. A few of the much orders ladies I knew growing up kept powder on their windowsills, to keep the haints away. These ladies always had yellow trim on their windows to ward off the haints as well.
But me, I apparently seek the not to grow life nor to ward off those who have passed over. You see friends I keep dinosaurs on my windowsills. I didn’t start out with a plan to keep dinosaurs on my windowsills. Actually I didn’t plan on keeping anything on my windowsills. However the four-footed one opted to out her plush dinosaurs on the windowsills she could reach. Thankfully she only has two, but that’s enough for me.
I’ve nothing against dinosaurs, plush or whatever. I just have no need for them on my windowsills, but every day around eight in the morning they are placed on the windowsills to be removed only when it’s time to run around the house with them in your mouth. Well if you are the four-footed one that is. I have no more need for carrying dinosaurs in my mouth than I do to have them on my windowsills!
