Preparing for Summer

We've been enjoying balmy days lately but the sun shone with a vengeance today. It made me remember that MIL has been talking about preparing for summer and has even asked us to go shopping for blinds with her. She wants new ones for all the windows in their home.

See, they have a lot of windows where the sun's rays directly hit. It's nice to get extra light from the sun, saves you energy bills, but it can also prove damaging to furniture. That's where blinds come in, they allow you to get the extra light without all the extra heat.

This way, your leather sofas won't cook.

So we're probably getting some venetian blinds next weekend, when she gets back from Marinduque.
