With everything checked and leveled after yesterday's festivities getting to the curtains was straightforward enough.  I took things very slowly--I really didn't want to have to do this two or more times for every silly curtain--so I took the adage about measuring twice and cutting (this case drilling) once.  Come to think of it I probably measured more like four or five times as things went along....

But it looks like it was worth it, because by the end of the day I had three gorgeous curtains all nicely hung and centered.  Measuring their bottom extents they are precisely at the right height...there's so little variation that honestly I could make them just be tugging on them a bit to stretch them (which I guess they'll do anyway over time).

Quite excellent.  Next week, the other side!

The first curtain up...looks goodly.
The second curtain up....looks good.
Spot check on the first two windows. Note the measuring tape that's hung down from WAY UP THERE so I could check where the curtains were sitting.
Curtain number three, looking good!
A somewhat messy shot of all three curtains; mind the furniture.
This is a typical measure of where the curtains fall from the rods up above. Remarkably identical, actually.
