So I just finished mounting the last screw on my window frame for my new blinds. These are not just any ordinary blinds though. They are my new shutter blinds Manchester, or also known as a plantation shutter.
Mine are made from hardwood although a lot of them recently are being mass produced from different material for production reasons.
These new blinds can completely cut out all light and air flow through the window into the room if I choose to close them that way. The only thing is that unlike traditional blinds these cannot be lifted or pulled out.
Here is the test. I turn the knob rotating it to close the blinds and see how well my installation went. With a smile on my face the blinds close completely cutting out all light and air as intended in the first place.
With proper installation I would definitely recommend these blinds to friends and family.

This summer was beautiful and I decided to take my niece and nephews to the beach. The backseat of my truck was filled with squeals and generally happy kiddie noises. As soon as I parked, I had to hold them back as we gathered our beach supplies. As we trudged through the sand, they pushed toward the shore. They plopped down on the beach and started making silica sand sculptures with their shovels and buckets. My niece, small as she is, was determined to do everything by herself, pushing her brothers away whenever they would try to help. She crafted a small little baby castle. It barely resembled the real thing, but she was so proud of it. Shouting “Auntie, look!” over and over as she patted the sand into shapes. It was adorable. The boys worked together to build a sand castle, but mostly just smashed the sand as soon as it looked like anything. We had a ton of fun that day. Have to do it next year.

Have you ever had a disappointing vacation? Just admit it – you probably have. My most disappointing and vexing vacation occurred while visiting Cancun, Mexico. Upon passing the many uk hotels, on the noisy trip to the beach, I knew this trip would end up being a major disappointment. It was. From my arrival at the airport to waking up late on the day of departure nothing went right. I mean nothing went right. The absolute worst event happened when someone loudly knocked on my door at 3 a.m. I still don’t know what would have happened if I would have inadvertently opened my door that night. What did happen was the beginning of insomnia that lasted the entire trip. Sleepless nights make for uneventful and boring days. In retrospect, I could have had a better attitude. After all the weather cooperated! I guess some vacations are just meant to be a disaster.
Please feel free to tell me about your “very vexing vacation story”
Till next time
