I'm going to brave the heat and go to the city
today. I'm looking for window treatments.
This has been on my to-do list longer
than I care to say. Just call me a
It's a must for downstairs. I took the old curtains
down because of fading and cat hair/scratches
and the sun really beams in the window in the
morning without a covering and it heats
up the room too much.
I'd really like to just buy an old-fashioned roller shade.
A heavy vinyl one that comes in a wide size.
Something I can replace often
when if the cats tear it.
But, I don't think they make them anymore.
At least in the size I need.
The size is awkward for shades or blinds, so I will
look again for room darkening panels.
I wish I'd had my camera close by tonight.
Peanut, the newest kitten, decided to shinny up
my drapes in the living room. It was a
funny sight and I had to laugh. I must
be mellowing in my
old middle age. She
had such a look on her fuzzy face after she
climbed so high. It was a "how do I get down
without falling or making a fool out of myself" look.
I am also in the market for new drapes as you
might imagine. But, I've decided the smart
thing to do is to wait until (a) we find a home for
Peanut or (b) she outgrows climbing drapes!
What's on your agenda today? And, if you are a cat
owner, what kind of window treatments do you
have that are kitty-proof? I'd love to know!
Until next time...
