 Well, not having any hot water on tap is starting to wear a bit thin.

First thing this morning Stew and I are off to the kid's house for a shower.  Lucky they don't mind.

After that, it's home to sew another net curtain.

And then, I'm off to Cambridge for an FBG get together.  I would be joining them with a walk, but as my chest infection/cough is still lingering, it's probably not a good idea.

I hate that I have lost so much of my fitness.  I doubt I could walk 2 kms right now, let alone do an FBG walk.

My doctor said I shouldn't try to do anything until I'm over this.  So, I will continue being a sloth for now. 

I had some net curtains that hung on both sides of the dining windows, but I didn't ever close them.

So anyway, I thought, hmmmmm.... how would they look here:

ABOVE:  I'm not sure yet if I like them there?  They certainly cut down the glare in the room, and give total privacy from outside.

I don't think Stew's sold on them yet... so we might 'live' with them for a while,  and see how we feel about them in a week or two.

And that's it for now.   I'm gunna get a move on... catch ya later.

3.25 pm:  Hi!
I've been MIA today.
First up, we ended up sleeping in, so it was a late start.
Then we went off for our showers, and ended up yakking an hour or two away with Steve.
Bex was at a Yarn Exhibition/Sale.

Then it was a quick trip to the supermarket for stuff for dinner.

After that is was home, and get ready to go over to Cambridge.

ABOVE: While I was out, Stew went and bought us some new patty tins.  Lacy killed our last ones.
They are for our dinner tonight.  I'm making bacon and egg pies.

ABOVE: Some of the walkers today, coming up the hill.  There was a fantastic turn out ... 20+ ladies.

ABOVE:  I don't know how well you can see them, but that's a couple of the groups at the bottom of 'the hill'.

ABOVE:  Just for fun.

Now that I'm home, I have to start preparing our dinner.
And all I feel like doing is going for a nap!  😂😅😆
Won't it be wonderful when I'm back up to speed, and have ENERGY again!

7.09 pm:  And dinner is over.  It was a great success.  Last time I made bacon and egg pies they were a bit raw in the middle!
This time they were perfect.  

I've decided the net curtains in the family room are too busy, and I'll take them down and find somewhere else to hang them.
When I can,  I'll make voile curtains for there.

Right now though, we are watching the Olympics and winding down for the day.
Catch ya tomorrow.

    I think they look great, both inside and from outside. I don't like the plain white ones.

    I'm the opposite, I like the plain white ones the best. :-) Ky Girl

  3. I think net curtains should soften the view not distract from it so I'm not sure. Plus the pattern reminds of bedsheets I had in the 70s!

    If it was my house they're too busy but it's not my house. Up to you guys. Be good in a bedroom though. Kj

  5. I think white curtains would be better in that location. But, I think it's a good idea to "test" them out to make sure you want "something" there.
