...this is what is staring me in the face.
I finished emptying the tall cabinet you can see at left, as well as its out-of-the-frame twin.
There is a big pile of stuff on the floor of Mark's basement shop, on the grounds that it's one spot in the house which he will eventually insist that I reorganize. Theoretically I will be pulling items from the basement and putting them into the schoolroom to use next year, and this will make room for the pile on the shop floor. We shall see.
Regardless, this kind of work, though tiring, and creating a demand for chocolate, is immensely satisfying. I love emptying shelves of all their crud and getting in there with a dust cloth and then putting new things in. I feel like going in with masking tape and marking the outlines of everything I put in there.
The children are watching a lot of movies. Whatever. It's the first week of vacation and they're spending the first three hours of the day at Catholic Vacation Bible School and by the time they get home it's really hot. Could be worse; could be seals escaping and roaming the streets.
OK. Back to work.
