Despite busting my hand in the process of moving all my patio plants back outside (storm passed over, all is fine), I decided to start the process of installing my newly purchased blackout curtains (do not be fooled by the white color) because temperatures are soaring again. This also involved installing curtain rods, the chosen style of which is a 2-person job. Another downside of this particular style of curtain rod is that apparently the only way to remove the curtains is by completely de-installing the rods themselves, firmly bolted into the walls. Which basically means these curtains will never be washed. Oops.

Look at how beautiful those curtains look though.

In all actuality, the nitpicker in me really wishes the curtains were properly ironed and just a tad shorter.
