Window Bird Feeders 19

There are many stages that we go through in​ our lives that call for adjustments .​
Starting as​ a​ child we need to​ adjust to​ the​ different spaces that we are put in​ .​
We go from a​ crib to​ a​ toddler bed to​ a​ twin bed .​
We adjust to​ sharing our bedroom spaces to​ having a​ space of​ our own .​
When we go on​ to​ college we often have to​ adjust to​ once again sharing out space with others in​ dorm rooms or​ shared housing .​
Fro some people this is​ not an​ issue,​ but for others it​ is​ a​ difficult transition .​
When we marry or​ move in​ with our partner we need to​ adjust to​ them .​
My mother is​ going through one of​ the​ hardest adjustments that we need to​ make in​ life .​
She is​ adjusting to​ not only being alone after fifty-one years of​ marriage,​ but also moving to​ a​ much smaller space.
 
After my father died it​ became obvious that my mother could not take care of​ the​ five-bedroom farmhouse that she and dad had shared for over forty years .​
The house was large and old and she was not safe trying to​ go up and down stairs to​ do laundry and to​ get to​ the​ upstairs bedroom area .​
We considered remodeling the​ house,​ but we were also concerned about her living out in​ the​ country by herself with a​ large yard and the​ need for snow removal services in​ the​ winter .​
She agreed to​ move into a​ senior high rise building in​ the​ small town that was located close to​ the​ farm .​
Moving from a​ five-bedroom house in​ the​ country to​ a​ one-bedroom apartment in​ town was quite an​ undertaking .​
She needed to​ get rid of​ many belongings .​
My mother loved being outdoors so the​ biggest thing for her to​ get used to​ was opening her door and being in​ a​ hallway .​
We wanted to​ give her some reminders of​ being of​ the​ farm so we bought window bird feeders for her to​ have in​ the​ living room and bedroom .​
She had always fed the​ birds at​ home so this was something that she could still enjoy.
 
The window bird feeders were shaped like a​ small house .​
They are made of​ clear plastic so they are lightweight and they suction cup to​ the​ windows .​
The roof of​ the​ house keeps the​ seeds dry .​
At first we were concerned that the​ window bird feeders would not stay on​ the​ windows,​ but the​ instructions that came with them worked .​
We were instructed to​ clean the​ space on​ the​ window where the​ suction cup would be with rubbing alcohol .​
We then put a​ very thin layer of​ vegetable oil on​ the​ suction cup and stuck it​ on​ the​ window .​
The suction cup fit very firmly .​
We filled the​ dishes with food and within a​ day the​ birds were coming to​ eat .​
We kept the​ bag of​ food in​ the​ closet and each time someone visited we would put more in​ the​ feeders .​
Mom gets a​ great deal of​ enjoyment watching the​ birds come to​ her window bird feeders.
