Curtains and Beans
I really like the SITAG house in which we are staying. It's concrete block walls are cool, we get a great breeze and a great view, the house is big, and there are enough dishes to have company! But lately, I've endured some uncomfortable nights. This has been Aaron's solution:
You see the bed on the left? And the window on the right? Not much room between the two. Right now, we are in the beginning of rainy season, and we frequently get squalls blowing through in the middle of the night. The first indication of the coming wind and rain is when I wake up thinking, "Oh, there's a bug on my arm!". Then, after waking up a little bit more, I think, "No, it's just one of the kids at the side of the bed." And finally, I realize, it's the curtain blowing up and down over me. My sweet, handy-man husband fixed the problem with some clothes pins and bags of beans! And now I rest much better at night.
