I'm trying to put curtains up in our living room. I moved the furniture around a couple weeks ago and now the afternoon sun shines right on my favorite chair, making it really warm. About a week and a half ago, I bought curtains and a curtain rod. Today I took the rod out of the package and piled the hardware on the windowsill along with the screw gun. Hopefully, within the next month, the rod will actually get screwed to the wall, then it'll only be a matter of weeks before I string the curtains onto the rod. Of course, by then, the days will have gotten longer and the sun won't be shining on me in the afternoons anymore, but I'll be all set for next winter.
