Where Did the Morning Go?

It's the Little Things...

My apartment has floor to ceiling-windows in the living room.  The window coverings are three-inch-wide plastic vertical panels.  In the almost four months since moving here, I had not closed the shades until last night when even our double-glazed windows couldn’t keep out the cold.

Alas, I saw that there was a gap, a missing panel, right in the middle of the window.

I had a feeling that when the shade people replaced similar shades in our former apartment down the hall, they left me one or two extra panels.  Sure enough, I had tucked one into a closet corner and forgotten about it. 

I couldn’t reach high enough with my small step stool to attach the panel, but my three-step ladder was perfect. I was able to slide the panel into the empty holder where it fit perfectly.

Made my day.

So glad you had the extra one but be careful doing that climbing.




Often it’s the small things that give the greatest feelings of accomplishments.


I am woman, hear me roar. A great feeling to DIY. I do not get on my step stairs for any reason though, too fraught with mishap potential.

So satisfying to complete a job without asking for help. x
