I decided to make it back earlier--LOL!
Dark, cloudy morning.
I surprised Leah yesterday and had all her thank you cards finished!
Simple and sweet.
Plus I moved the dried roses into one of the black boxes from IKEA and folded four sets of 80 white cards for when we start stamping Christmas cards next. :)
I didn't want to say anything on the blog in case Leah peeked, but that's what I had been working on this last week.
And they surprised me, too, and already had the shoe bench together! We knew it would be too long for this side of the entryway so all this will be moved to...
...this side. And the bookcase will be moved to the other side. Another project that will be done in increments. (I didn't feel up to it last night--just said leave it for now.)
And where will the old wire and wood shoe rack go (that used to be where the shoe bench is temporarily sitting now)? Don't laugh.
Well, you can laugh if you want to. ;) It's going on top of the dresser where the fish tank used to be in the bedroom to give me extra storage shelving.
I never care what something looks like to anybody else, to be honest. If it works for me, I will use furniture in peculiar ways--LOL! You can never have enough storage space, right? ;)
So now that I have my erasable labels and things shifted about like they are...I guess it's finally time to get back to more cleaning and organizing around here. As long as I have to move the bookcase in the entryway (which means empty and clean it)--there may be some more purging to freecycle involved there, too. :)
Karma is fascinated with the new bench. No surprise.
Seeing the world from a new angle is always intriguing. She has her eyes riveted upon her string toys that reside on top of the bookcase. She seems to be calculating the odds of the additional 19.5 inches somehow providing her the impetus to fly lightly up to actually reach that pinnacle where her treasures lie.
It is a little unnerving when I'm in the kitchen, though, to see a cat's head poke around the corner almost three feet off the ground! Makes one feel like Alice in Wonderland or something. Karma is, shall we say, quite solidly earthbound. Regardless of her perpetual hopes and dreams, she cannot gracefully leap about like her more slender brethren. ;)
Dagan brought cords along and messed with the antenna trying various configurations. We settled on what appeared to be the best one...at least for last night. TV over the airwaves can be quite the fickle friend. Picture the days of rabbit ears covered in tin foil and I am one step above that--LOL! ;) All this time with antenna dilemmas has taught me one thing, though--I could get along with just my laptop these days. Most broadcast TV channels (except for ABC) I can watch easily for free online. And I can watch Netflix streaming or a DVD on my laptop, too--so I could survive quite well. Already have been, for that matter--LOL!
Leah will be all done working after next Friday!! Through emails and links I have been learning all about the new products they have for babies these days--wow! They have the coolest stuff! Quite different than almost 40 years ago, that's for sure. You'll hear and see more about baby stuff over the next few months, I'm sure. ;)
Well, just wanted to pop in on this dark day. So dark, in fact, that this is a shot I just took of Miss Karma on the shoe bench without a flash. (Yes, she is still plotting and hoping and dreaming.)
I don't tell her she can't manage this feat of fantasy.
One should never crush another's dreams.
See you again soon.
