Last weekend our son and his family came over for a cook-out and then the grand kids went swimming. We did have an uninvited guest though! My grandson picked up the pool float leaning against the wall and underneath was a Copperhead snake. (gasp) We don’t know how he got into the screened pool area but I have Steve checking every inch for gaps he could have slithered through.
I am petrified of snakes, more so than just about anything else! I would rather have had a dozen alligators in the pool than this one snake.
On to more pleasant things…
This weekend I finally got the IKEA curtains hemmed and hung. I had thought of embellishing them with trim or ribbon like our bedroom curtains but decided to leave them as is for now. Before you say “Sherry, whats up with the gap between the curtains and the blinds?” let me explain. We are waiting for estimates from three contractors on the cost of replacing the windows with french doors. They all dropped by, measured and then disappeared! We are back to square one looking for a contractor. My plans are to install bamboo blinds at the height of the rod once we know the size of french doors. For now you’ll just have to use your imagination.
Can you visualize the bamboo blinds?
It seems like for every project we do there are twenty more waiting to be done. The wish list
for this room is french doors to pool, remove wall between dining room and living room,
add hardwood floors, change funky ceiling fan and foyer light.
If only we can get a contractor to show up!
Thanks for visiting.
