Up on the housetop

Around 6:30 this morning, I was in the shower when I heard a horrific racket up on the roof. Elvis and Clementine had gone exploring. Do you have any idea how much noise little goat hooves make on a tin roof? Our house is perched on the side of a hill and we have a rock wall that is almost even with the roof in the back, making it easy for the little monsters to get up there and traipse around. We're going to be blocking that obviously - hopefully before we have a goat come through one of the skylights.

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.

I put curtains up in our living room a couple of months ago. I normally would have put it off, but for some reason I tackled it. Took me the better part of a day.
