That #*!&% Curtain, Other Projects & Camping Plans

So I got the curtain up today and discovered that one magnet on each end of the curtain rod is not strong enough to hold the curtain up.  I added some sticky tape to hold it up while I took the picture, and as soon as I got the photo, the curtain fell down.

I really rue the day I decided not to use riveted rod holders!

Tonight I’ll glue on another magnet per side and hold my breath that it works!

I screwed a small cup hook into a 1/4″ dowel that I hung from one of the curtain rings.  This is so, when the screen door is closed at night, I can reach it from the door lock area to open the curtain it without having to open the whole door.

While I was at it, I removed the old, rusty kitchen rack.  I’ll replace it with a similar spice rack to hold small bottles of dish soap, vitamins, and such.  But installing the new one won’t happen until tomorrow.  I’m still unbelievably disappointed at the curtain rod problem.

I also bought new wire racks for the inside of the closet and the bathroom.

I removed this old, rusty kitchen rack today.  Will put up a shiny new one tomorrow.  :)

We are planning to go camping Tuesday.  We originally thought Monday, but there’s a 70% chance of thunderstorms.  There’s only a 20% on Tuesday, so that will be our travel day.

We’ve decided to go to the mountains in spite of daily thunderstorms.  We’d get the storms anyway if we camped in the Talledega National Forest in Alabama or in the North Georgia COEs.  And it will be 10 degrees cooler at Mt. Pisgah.

On a happier note, I did find several boletes today.  I probably won’t have time to identify them, but I do know that one is a bolete and one a suillus.  One is unknown.  Also found a new amanita.  So assuming I calm down from today’s Casita mod disasters, I’ll work on that this evening!  🙂
