Shift happens

Furniture, that is, thanks to the friends. Pictures when I have a few moments to upload from the camera and slap a web page together. The living room looks different, and nice. Although I'm still wondering where to put the needlepoint chair, which is now serving as auxilary Maya seating in the office.

I got a bit too carried away with the making dinner thing and forgot to ask that other pieces in the back bedroom also be taken downstairs. But nothing too major. I think I can manage the lamp, and cat_herder and I can probably do the modular units.

Usually after the cleaners come I have to cook something and gum up the perfectly clean kitchen. I thought I had that sussed yesterday as I made the sauce and dessert in advance, but stirfrying vegetables kept plopping on the floor and I had plates for four, not one. The sink is back to shining now; last night some pans were soaking.

Stuff is piling in the office. I had thought that my room would be the final frontier (well, except for the utility room) for cleaning, but it is looking more manageable than the office at the moment. I still want to try to get the piano in, but the floor will need to be spot refinished first. This will take planning.

I had big cooking plans for tonight, but mostly ended up talking on the phone with people. I did end up putting the shelving unit together for the back bedroom and loading it - it looks like my junk has been sitting on those shelves for a year instead of an hour! So the major thing I needed to get done around the house happened.

Tired now. Going to sleep. It's dark out.

A Moving Experience
I'd be happy to be the wild little monkey for you and get stuff moved around. It only takes a few minutes, no big whoop. BTW - just get the piano inside. It may look dry inside the garage, but that's a bad place for it and critters might nest in it.

And OF COURSE you have to use the kitchen and make it messy after its been cleaned! That's the whole fun of having a kitchen!

BTW - Thanks for the chow. It was LOVELY.

I second the compliments on the food. Dinner was delish.

If you want more help with moving stuff, I can lend a hand tomorrow; Himself is going out of town for 24 hours and I'm free after 6ish. Still working on the Front Bedroom, natch, but I can take a short time out and help move items.

Also: piano? outdoors? Get that sucker INSIDE, soon. Outside is a Very Bad Place for pianos.

Yeah, well, guess what one of the things I was going to do last summer after the June madness was. You've convinced me, I will try to shuffle things around so the floor can get repaired, and get it in. Would you or Himself mail me your local piano mover/tuner contacts?

Your kind offer is appreciated, but my visitor's plane arrives at 2 pm tomorrow (or did you mean today) so it's hammer time. No worries, things will be ok once I vacuum and hook up the clock radio.

Moo haw haw
I can get the room emptied in a day. I strongly suggest all this happen in September, well in advance of any rains. If you let me get all the cardboard out of the back room, I can pile up the books and stuff in there so the floor guys do their magic. Time's pressing, so don't get too worried or fussy. As they say on redneck TV, "Just get 'er DONE!"
