One way to make Cyn very hap­py: Take away the spare sofa that’s been block­ing much of the liv­ing room for the last month. We can WALK into the liv­ing room, and get to the key­board to play it! And there’s actu­al LEG ROOM in front of the loveseat!

sam­bear and shad­owkatt are on the way to joyeuse13’s house with said sofa right now. They will return with a heav­ier sleep­er sofa, but it is des­tined to live upstairs. I am going to cam­paign heav­i­ly for it to nev­er even rest on the first floor for a moment, but to go upstairs IMMEDIATELY.

After ga_sunshine comes to claim her fur­ni­ture tomor­row, the rest of the tools that are tak­ing up space inside will go out into the garage where they belong. We will then be able to set up the shelv­ing for the rest of the books and access the built-in cab­i­nets out there for stor­age of var­i­ous kinds of overflow. 

Half of the garage is des­tined to be a work­shop, til we can repair the roof on the stor­age shed and get it wired for elec­tric­i­ty. Hav­ing the work­shop in place means that the tools will be orga­nized and acces­si­ble. That’s vital to mov­ing on with oth­er impor­tant projects, like rip­ping out the water-dam­aged wall, ceil­ing, and win­dow frame in the sit­ting room. 

curiousmay9 hopes to get her kitchen goods packed up and trans­ferred from the cot­tage tomor­row. She’s very much under the weath­er, so I don’t think that’s a real­is­tic goal. For now, I’m con­cen­trat­ing on mov­ing things to more log­i­cal loca­tions in the kitchen (they were moved willy-nil­ly from box­es to cabinets).

(I do have to say one thing about the apart­ment we were in. The kitchen was gal­ley style and very small, but it was laid out extreme­ly well.)

The clean­ing peo­ple came this week, which was SO love­ly! I can­not say how much I enjoy a tru­ly clean house. And this way, I have the ener­gy to enjoy it, rather than being too exhaust­ed to do so. 

My goals for the rest of the week­end involve get­ting fur­ni­ture into the prop­er rooms, fin­ish­ing the hook-up of var­i­ous elec­tron­ics, and offer­ing spare “stuff” on Freecy­cle, and hang­ing pic­tures on the walls. 

I need to water the toma­toes and ros­es out­side, so I might as well feed and water the indoor plants while I’m at it. I might need to reap­ply Bit­ter End to the indoor plants and furniture.

I’ve been doing lots of home­work too. I’m alter­nat­ing home­work and house stuff so that I don’t get too stiff from sit­ting and don’t wear myself out by over­do­ing phys­i­cal work.
