CONvergence 2005 Preacher- Diffuse Glow

Moving Without Moving

We had our living room and dining room painted last week. We've been meaning to do it since we bought the house, but the color choice took a while (apparently matching a pink marble fireplace complicates things?). It looks great and they got it done in less time than they initially estimated.

Now that the painting is done we can finally get our books unpacked (I had the brilliant idea to leave them packed until we painted not realizing it would be a year). This also means that the sun room which was full of book boxes for almost a year is much more spacious all of a sudden.

We've also been working on getting the place together for the housewarming party this weekend. billmurray8 and dcontaminant stopped by Sunday to pick up the old heavy TV. I hauled the old smaller TV out to the garage so that it can be taken off to the farm next week. I also spent some time trimming our lilac bushes (or more accurately, the other plants in the bushes that were encroaching on the alley enough that the garbage guys asked us to trim them).
