We have three beautiful windows in our family room that overlook our back yard, and the lush forest behind with stunning, California live oak trees. But because those windows face to the southwest, we have to have the windows covered at least partially during the hot afternoon sun.
Enter our favorite window covering: The top-down, bottom-up (TDBU). There are two great things about the TDBU blind. The first, is that it can be lowered from the top down.
The second position allows us to raise the shade from the bottom up.
We particularly like the top-down aspect of this window covering. Why? Because it allows a tremendous amount of privacy. I can walk around the family room, without a shirt on if I choose, and more importantly, in my underwear, without the neighbors having to run to their cell phones to call 911 for my indecent exposure! *he blushes with embarrassment*
This is the age-old question for writers. When I’m blogging, I find myself struggling with which configuration I should offer in my posts: Do I maintain my privacy, remain comfortable, and not expose my deepest thoughts, emotions, or feelings? Or should I throw everything out there; including my “deepest, darkest …?”
I vacillate on these thoughts frequently. And wonder whether to throw caution to the wind, or play it safe. I guess for me, it comes down to this: Does anyone really want to see me in a great pair of Hanes boxer-briefs??
