Home Improvements

I can’t believe it’s been a month since I have written here….I have been kinda busy…

I finally got the courage to fix the window treatments.  One bright and sunny Saturday, Paul and I decided to do some work around the White Knight.  He got some new blocks for the pad so I decided to work on the windows.  I started by figuring out that you can take the pieces off one at a time, so I took off the 1st layer, easy enough, then the 2nd layer.  By now the windows are starting to look much better, and the dirty, nasty, gross panels are gone!  Then things got crazy and I took the top panels off since everything else looked so good.  Well…while it looks so much cleaner and better, it revealed the fact that the shades and mini-blinds are attached to particle board that is attached to the base of the cabinets.  It doesn’t look so pretty, and neither did Paul’s face when he saw what I had done!  So…a new mini-blind and some fabric and we should be as good as new. I am just so glad to be rid of those nasty window panels, it’s starting to look more like what I hoped it would, not stuck in the 90’s!!  I actually bought a new sewing machine – thanks to cyber sales – so now I can sew the curtains, instead of using heat tape.  It will be a while before they are done, but I will have pictures!

We decided to take another trip in January, for my birthday this time.  Paul started looking for sites in the Keys…that turned into an exercise in futility!  The restrictions at some of these parks are ridiculous;  no dogs, only small dogs, no dogs of an “aggressive” breed, no motorcycles, no trailers….we finally decided that we didn’t want to go to the Key’s anyway!  Next choice was the Gulf Coast.  We found several places that would accommodate us.  We settled on one that when he called, they sounded excited about Sasha.  So…off we go to the Gulf Coast in a little over a month.
