All Things Work Together

6 Apr

On Monday, I ordered two bookcases to put in the guestroom, andSouth-Shore-Axess-71-Bookcase-7246768C was told they would be delivered on the 11th. Great service, but it meant something else to try to stuff into a corner, as the carpet wasn’t to be delivered until the 15th.

This morning, we got a call from Lowe’s saying the carpet had been received yesterday, and they would call tomorrow to set up an installation on Friday! So – we will have the carpet down, with the weekend to get most of the furniture back into place, and then on Monday and Tuesday we can get the bookcases set up, and get the rest of the stuff out of the workshop. I really would like to have molding around the tops of the bookcases, with bead board, etc. on the backs, so they will looks as if they were built in. We’ve put too much time, energy, and money into this project to cut corners at the last minute.

The Squire wants to take down the counter he’d built in the workshop back when he did computer repairs, but maybe I can convince him that would be a jolly good place for me to work on my miniatures.  Of course, that leaves the power saw down in the back room, and I have NO desire to bring that upstairs, with the sawdust and everything else that entails. We shall see.

And, of course, the freezer needs to be defrosted, desperately, and I’d like to be able to get the pantry straightened out.

All in good time. All in good time. Baby steps.
