Stop the presses! I have a living room! My house has been much like a camp site for the majority of the month. I didn't want to order new furniture until I actually OWNED the house. Then delivery was several weeks out. From the beginning, I told myself I could go as bold as I wanted. The emerald green couch from the old house is now in the basement. For this house, I wanted to reflect a little Mid Century Modern with as much bright and cheerful as I could manage. Yes, I did totally panic when I unboxed that, very orange, couch. But, honestly, I love it. I'm so happy to have a place to do my stitching. Not that I've been stitching, but if I wanted to, I totally could.
I had a clean room for almost a full day before I decided to empty out the office to start on it... It's all a process. Did I tell you my safe disintegrated during the move? I was putting some documents away in the fireproof safe when the lid flew off! The darn hinge had completely rotted and it chose the week of the move to fall apart. The movers wouldn't take the safe because there was no lid. So all the important stuff got transported in an open laundry basket in Bethany's car. Then, at the new house, it ended up scattered all over the floor in the Pepto office. Oi!
I had hoped to work on the office this week but I managed to get a pinched nerve in my left shoulder. I believe the bookshelf you see in that box, front and center, is to blame. Or maybe, the stress of the year is finally catching up to me. Either way, I'm off to find a chiropractor on this side of the river.
Hope you're all safe & happy!
