It’s definitely a groove, and not a rut; my work is running smoothly and harmoniously.
The electrician came today, and we are now blessed with working air conditioning, more power sockets than we know what to do with, and the power supply to install a garage door lifter. I’m grateful I won’t be jumping out of the car to lift that heavy thing much longer. What I’ve also been able to do is get my workspace up and, well, working! It’s pressing time up there right now, 35 WOF strips to press the creases out of so I can start stitching them together.
The bare wall at the left of this image will contain floor to ceiling book cases, and the wall above the cutting table on the right will have pictures, a pinboard, a mirror and hooks for rulers and tools. I desperately need to do something about those dreadful curtains, too, a legacy of the previous owners…
Outside, things are progressing too. My beans have germinated and are sprouting, less than a week after I put them in the ground. There are tiny lemons on the tiny lemon tree, flowers on the tomatoes and capsicums, and the sweet potato vine is twice the length it was a week ago. Summer’s on its way; it’s hot again, and I’m happy we’ll be able to cool the house down efficiently.
We got bookshelves up, a dresser constructed, our desks organised and the flyscreens installed in the bedroom windows. I’ve unpacked 7 or 8 boxes of books, and the living room is finally starting to look dressed.Of course, we haven’t even started with hanging pictures or unrolling rugs, but that will all come. I have a mountain of cardboard boxes to deconstruct, many of which will be coming in useful out in the garden as mulch under raised beds, but most of them will just have to be slowly recycled on yellow bin day (green bins for general waste, yellow bins for recyclables). Meanwhile, they can go into the shed, out of sight, and out of the way.
Back to work.
