The light fixture in my powder room fell from the wall 4 weeks ago. Actually, I caught it before it crashed. What a close call, it would have been such a mess.
After climbing up on the counter, undoing everything, and taping over the light switch, I just turned my back on the whole situation. Too much, not in the mood...
It's not easy to hang a light fixture by yourself! Even if you're the resident handyperson. But I did it. Flipped on the switch - and nothing happened. I could have cried. Of course I was so sure of my work that I had already put on the globes and everything. So off they came again. One of the wire caps was not on securely. Second time was a charm. I have light. What an exhausting project.
But those curtains take some thought - I work hard to keep heat out of the house. Sheers just don't work, even with mini-blinds and sun-blocking shades.
Hats off to IKEA. I love these Merete curtains. They are a very heavy cotton twill. Perfect.
Bonus - I used 5 of the 6 panels and have enough leftover fabric to make a jeans jacket!
The biggest project of all is looming. I had two roofing companies come out to estimate a new tile roof.
It's time - the roof is 22 years old and has several leaks over the garage. Even with repairs, it hasn't been the same since Hurricane Wilma in 2005. I accepted a proposal on Monday, and I've done the paperwork for my association. I guess the hard part is over - getting my head around spending so much money!
Hope everyone has a pleasant weekend. Ciao! Coco
