Slowly but surely the boxes full of our belongings are making it back into our house. First things first though, which means my fiber and yarn stash is coming home first. :o) I'm reluctant to put everything back as it was before, it was too stuffed, I don't want that again. So some things will stay in storage for a while longer, until really needed.
The kitchen is still waiting to be finished. I refuse to use it, until it's fully done. No word on when that will be. :o( Getting angry does not speed things up.
Look how the shade in the next photo makes the shelves seem gray, but they are creamy white.
So, now that we've been back in our bedrooms for a while now, I'm starting to get the living/craft room together. I'm using the old book shelves to fill them with yarn and fiber, and my knitting/crafts books. I've just started, and what FUN that is!
The yarn has to stay in the shelves in two rows, so you only see the front row in some of the photos. I've filled them up more, since I took this picture. We will still rearrange the shelves on the left side of the room, once I get my new craft table assembled, and I still need to figure out where to put my desk.
We had an exhausting trip to IKEA today. I used to like going there, but not so much anymore. I didn't find everything I needed, but I found these new green plates.
The pups are on their way outside.
We found a work table there, it's actually a conference table, but exactly what I was looking for. No luck with a desk though, and nothing for the hallway, where we want to put the keys and stuff once we come inside. One has to be very careful not to get lost in that store, and buy accessories, which are so neat, but not needed. Oh, and I almost forgot! We did find a kitchen island, which is basically a base cabinet, with a wooden counter top, and four drawers. My son is going to paint it white though, only the counter top will be wood. We were talking that we should have bought a kitchen at IKEA, they had so many beautiful ones in the show rooms. I don't know about the quality though, but I liked several kitchens they had.
There's so much to do right now, I don't have much time to play with my fibers. In the evenings I'm too tired to enjoy knitting, or spinning, although I manage to knit a few rounds on my latest pair of socks every day. I'm also, once again, terrible behind in answering my emails, so please forgive me, I'll get to them asap.
Fall is beautiful this year. We've enjoyed sunny days, around 10C highs during the day. I'm happy to be back on normal time.
Denny never liked to be picked up, but it's necessary for him to tolerate it, for future Vet visits etc. So my son lifts him up every day, and if Denny does not growl, he gets a treat from me. In the photo you see him waiting for it eagerly. He's pretty good with it now, and rarely growls under his breath anymore.
He's 8 1/2 month now, and it feels like we've been living with him for 8 years! He's a pup with lots of personality. You can't leave him alone for even a second. Generally though it's become easier, although I doubt that he'll ever stop liking anything fabric. Anyway, I better get my knitting out. I'm done for today, so I can put up my feet now, and knit a little.
