Ok, here is the finished window cornice. I like it! I wish I could show you how it looks with the drapery panels on either side, but the light coming in through the window is screwing up the photo. I'll try to remember and get a photo after dark and see if that works.
Today was another hot one, our temp gauge topped out at a little over 99 degrees. It was reading 97 in the fiver. Just like clock work the electricity popped off around 1:30. If one more person comes by telling me to turn off my AC, they are going to find my shoe toe up their butt!! Yes, my patience is wearing thin. We have not been running our AC and have not run the thing for probably over a year. Oh well, the electric went on and then off for most of the rest of the day and into early evening. I'm afraid the heat got the best of me today and I decided to head for bed around 7pm. DH stayed up and watched tv til around 10pm.
The cool down is on its way----they are forecasting cooler temps tomorrow and maybe a chance of rain. I sure would not want to be out east with all the cold and snow, but I am ready for break in the above average temps here in the desert.
