i wish there were more hours in the day
Last weekend we took a load over including the lawn mower. DH mowed the lawn while I started unpacking. :o) That was very exciting. Everything we had taken over so far had just been put in it's appropriate room still in it's box. There are some built in bookshelves in the living room so I washed all the shelves and started unloading boxes of books. I got a couple of shelves filled and started on the bookcase we brought for the dining room. Everyone keeps books in their dining room don't they? After I finished putting the books away I put my teddy bear that always lives on my staircase on the step. :D Now it's home.
I also spent an hour or so washing down the walls and shelves in the pantry so now it's ready to start moving some of the kitchenware we can live without for a month or so. This is in the corner of the kitchen beside the firepalce. I think the first realtor we looked at the house with thought I was loony because I got all excited by this pantry. I love old houses because they always have these little built in cubby hole type things. I really dislike wasted space. I know, now y'all think I'm loony too. It is going to be a very useful space though. I hate appliances on the countertop. I'm going to put all our small appliances in there as well as canned goods and items that we don't use as often like the wok. I'll get a picture after it's full. You're going to love it.
