The moving was postponed until Sunday. Their friend with the truck, John, had a short window last night...plus it began to snow and the temp was plummeting. Right now this afternoon it is only 7 degrees. I think they predicted near zero last night. So, John has a bigger window on Sunday from 11am-2pm and was much happier to do it then. No problem.
As you can see this morning...the snowfall was pathetic...again. I think the temp dropped so rapidly that it got too cold to snow in no time flat--LOL! Just another dusting, but too cold to melt, too...for a few days anyway.
Oh, my Writer's Bloc order arrived yesterday afternoon. Pearl gray Trophee paper, three Triomphe tablets, and a couple packages of envelopes (the french paper is not the same size as ours--too wide to fit into my regular card envelopes). Happy to be stocked up! :)
Karma's bed went back up on "her" chair.
Dagan and Leah did come over.
Do you see something new on the wall by the porch door?
TaDa!! We finally got the IKEA "racks" up! Well, Dagan and Leah did. I was only a back up for "are these level" observations--LOL! We could even fit three more on the wall--whoohoo! Those are all various kinds of punches. The racks were spaced evenly so that we can change things around any time we want. Cool! :)
They just look like the old-fashioned metal towel bars, to me. ;)
Leah picked up these plastic holder thingies to grip the screws into the wall so they are in there firmly. Having the punches so handy is going to be a treat. :)
Dagan and Leah also put the wire cube shelves together for the corner in the bedroom. We discovered that they are made to be put together side by side in two levels of three. They don't give you enough parts to stack six shelves high. We had two sides and one connector left over with five high--but it is just fine.
Well, just fine to me. Drove Leah crazy because there are two types of sides...small squares and larger squares for bottoms/tops and sides...but they don't match. LOL! Dagan just giggles at the two of us. Leah has her OCD things that drive her nuts and I have mine. So it is a good thing this set of cube shelves came over to my place. Doesn't bother me that the sides don't match. Luckily. Leah would have had to return them--ROFL!
Now I can finally begin to sort out the mess in the bedroom. On the floor (as you see) and the closet.
This morning (well afternoon--I had a sleep-a-thon till noon) Karma spied snow on the porch and begged to go out. But her "spring" lolling about on the porch had suddenly vanished and the 5 degrees was a shock to her...
...she turned right around and wanted to come back inside.
You think I'm optimistic? Silly girl thought that she had drug some snow inside on her feet (by her logic, they were cold enough) and she quickly turned around to look for snowy footprints to eat.
This snow is too cold to stick to her feet, anyways...the crunchy dry stuff. LOL!
We had a nice night, though. Wonderful to get the punch racks up and the shelves together for the bedroom. Leah took John's box with her to wrap and mail this week. The loveseat will be coming on Sunday (say a prayer). I'm already set for the change. My finger is looking good and should be ready for being wet a lot, soon. It's warm inside and I don't have to go anywhere or do anything in particular today. Life is good!!
Change doesn't always happen when you want it to.
Live in the present moment.
Karma is snoring softly in her cat bed on her chair.
Ignorance is bliss. ;)
