Ugly Gem

do you see this ugly thing? this wonderfully fabulous eyesore?

yes, this gas meter is the most beautiful thing i have laid eyes on all week month season! this lovely little gem means tomorrow (yes, tomorrow) we will finally have heat! words cannot express how excited this diamond in the rough makes me.

i'm sure come spring i will be dying to hide it. i'm sure my mission will soon become finding a plant that will cover the hot mess that is our gas meter. but for now, i find myself just standing on our sidewalk, admiring it's beauty and basking in the hope it brings - in the promise that soon we will be toasty and warm. what a glorious sight!


  1. wait!!?? Do you live somewhere warm? Or had electric heat before? How do you not have gas? :) I despise my gas bill each month :) Congrats either way!

  2. As they is in the eye of the beholder, or in this case, the colder it gets the more beautiful it becomes. All I can say is, "It's about TIME".
