I never did make it into my quilt studio yesterday, but the great freezer sort 'n switch is done! As always happens, I found a few forgotten "surprises" down on the very bottom. (Does this kind of thing happen with an upright freezer, too?) Not much was discarded to be thrown out into the poultry yard though, so maybe I've had a better handle on all the frozen stuff than I thought.
Couldn't help but take a couple of pictures of the Virginia Creeper this morning. The leaves haven't reached the brilliant red stage yet, but are impressive none the less. I need to take the impatiens out of the window boxes and replace them with the miniature fall pumpkins but the flowers have continued to look so good (right up until a couple of days ago) that I couldn't bring myself to rip them out. Now that they're definitely looking dilapidated I can do it.
Don't know if you can see it by the pictures, but the vines traveling to the east on the house seem to have more red coloring in them. Hope they don't get zapped with frost for at least a couple of weeks yet.
No segue here, but I've finally taken a picture of my new desk area.
This was my old desk by the window in the bedroom.
Ta-dah! Here we are with the new desk on the opposite wall of the room. I had to make the switch because the hutch on the desk would have blocked the window in the old location. A big thank you goes to my dear hubby who spent a couple of hours on his belly and back in the crawl space rerouting computer and phone lines so I could have the new room arrangement.
I'm very happy with the new desk as it's certainly a much nicer piece of furniture than my old metal clunker, but I'm still getting used to it. You know how your dresser or desk or kitchen drawers may be a total, awful, terrible mess . . . but you know exactly where everything is? When I switched desks I was amazed (ashamed?) at the amount of JUNK stuffed in the old one and ruthlessly got rid of a lot of it. Now everything in the new desk is organized, orderly, functional . . . and I CAN'T FIND A THING! I regularly have to open three or four drawers before I find what I'm looking for. I guess it's true that change, even though it's for the better, is a little uncomfortable at first.
Okay, the house is clean (relatively), I have a pie in the oven, dinner is planned, and as soon as this post is published, I am heading for my quilt studio. Wa-hoo!
