Tonight I will sleep soundly. As a matter of fact, I may not even wait until the sun sets. Today I moved things - around downstairs and from upstairs to downstairs.
I've always enjoyed rearranging the furniture in my house. It allows me to see different perspectives as different angles of the room are revealed. But today I took it one step further and carried out the re-thinking of the spaces here.
Act 1 - painted the first coat on a downstairs wall. It was fiddly, because the wall has a door, a window, a light switch and two power outlets.
Act 2 - constructed two IKEA Billy bookcases. Deconstructed two IKEA Billy bookcases because I'd reversed two pieces. Constructed two IKEA Billy bookcases. (I guess this could be counted as three steps because it took so long, but I'm over it now. They are very nice bookcases.)
Act 3 - painted the second coat of paint on the fiddly wall.
Act 4 - disconnected my computer, printer, modem, scanner and external drive. Kept my fingers crossed that I could reconnect everything.
Act 5 - moved all the equipment downstairs in several trips.
Act 6 - cleared all my sewing equipment onto the table formerly used for the computer.
Act 7 - carried the table formerly used for sewing plus a chair downstairs.
Act 8 - reconnected all the computer equipment.
Act 9 - collapsed on the couch with a cold drink.
Oh, and did I mention it is 38 degrees AGAIN?
