Unpacking the last few things.

Been meaning to check in.  I guess I’ve been busy.  Or lazy.  Well,  only lazy in the blogging department.  I think I’ve been putting in longer days than when I had an actual J.O.B.   Sad but true.

Pictures can tell the rest.


OK so,  we’ve seen this.


And this.


The big difference now of course is,  the room is really,  really white.


Hey man,  she wanted white.  Me no argue.

But then comes the final bits.



Reminded once again of just how well the movers packed us.  There was to be no damage whatsoever.  Bit of a pain in the butt on the taking apart end of things,  but I’m OK with that.



Oh,  the bubble wrap!  Regular garbage pick-up again this coming week.  Thankfully.






And there we have a storage/cutting table,  back where it was five years ago.


Then there’s the bookcase,  and one more table.


We’ll figure out what to put on those bare walls.   Maybe little thread holder thingies?  Not my deal.  Maybe we’ll strike a committee.


I still have to deal with the trim around the door (casing) and along the floor.  I’ve threatened to add a little colour.  Wish me luck.

And that,  will be that.

Meanwhile,  I found myself in a bit of trouble the other night,  since I had graciously donated a bag of used clothing at one of the local drop off locations,  only to discover that Travelling Companion was going to set it out for pick up this morning.  Oops.

We didn’t come to blows,  thankfully.

It took very little effort for the two of us to come up with two more bags of clothes,  just like that.   I unloaded all my old “Facilities Services” shirts,  along with a few other items that I’m no longer interested in taking out and putting away as the seasons change.  I haven’t a clue what T.C. pitched out,  and I’m sure it’ll make very little difference in our lives.  We still have way too much stuff,  but this too shall come to pass.


Seemed a bit odd that the Canadian Diabetic Association would send out a truck on a Sunday,  but what do I know?

Pretty convenient if you ask me.  I didn’t even have to toddle off to a used clothing bin.


It’ll be an early morning tomorrow,  but maybe I’ll touch on that later.  Best to keep this painlessly short.


Thanks for stopping by.




  1. Take care, don't over do it all.

  2. Looks like a quilting/sewing studio. Won't the sewing projects add "color" to the room.

  3. Oh boy, you HAVE been busy! Always takes a while until everything is unpacked after a move.

  4. Boy oh boy you like the energizer bunny, busy busy.
    Keep up the good work but don't forget to relax on one of these sunny warm days coming up.


Well, I've been getting too many spam comments showing up. Just a drag, so we'll go another route and hope that helps. So, we won't be hearing anything more from Mr. Nony Moose.
I guess I'll just have to do without that Gucci purse.
