Home projects

The curtains were hung over the windows with care,

This is actually a pale pink wall, not the yellow that it looks like with the flash.

The project for my weekend is done - weatherproofing. They say a lot of heat is lost through window glass and that even sheer curtains are better than no curtains at all for retaining heat inside the house during those long, cold winter months. So I'm getting prepared for the record cold winter that they've been predicting....for the last ten years!!!

I've got some top down/bottom up blinds on order for the front of the house but that's more a privacy issue than anything else. Too many people walking by after dark and glancing through my windows. Hate that. Now I'll be able to close the bottom half so passerbys can't look in but I'll still be able to see out the top half and not have that closed in, claustrophobic feeling.
