She had a dream of her daughter sitting in the bow window, reading the books she'd enjoyed as a child. Little Women. Little House on the Prairie. Books about horses. But her daughter mostly stayed in her room an read music magazines. Kids were like that.

The cat liked the window seat. After the cat died she put some bottles of colored water on the shelf. After she died her daughter gave away the bottles of water to the Goodwill. The volunteers waited until the daughter had gotten into her car and driven away, and then they threw them out.
