Winter's coming!  Windows in the bedroom are the first to frost, probably due to all the breathing overnight.  Wiped the condensation with a cloth.  Camera battery died halfway through so the second half of the pictures are from my phone.

The cold air and frost this morning worked in my favor. Now if only the camera on my phone was of a quality to tell anything was done. :/

Lots of condensation on a couple windows this morning! And just a teeny bit on the third - I hope this still counts. The windows ended up a little streaky still after using a cloth, so I switched to paper towel but it’s still streaky and leaving a bit of moisture behind. I guess it’s just that cold outside and that warm/humid inside...

I hope it counts to wipe down one window a second day in order to get my three.  For some reason right now I've only got the two windows getting condensation.  Mind you I'm not complaining about that!

Lots of condensation on this window that is over my bed, probably from me breathing out warm moist air onto the cold window all night.

I had condensation build up last night on a different 3rd window so I'll go ahead and add a couple photos of that one to my submission above.
