Bavarian china, crystal, fancy schmancy stuff that we all treasured at one time. I called my sister and suggested she might want some of this (I hope!) but will she ever use it? Does anyone entertain in this sort of style anymore? When I think of having a party, even one where the food is special, I don't imagine dragging out these pieces as they seem over the top. Downton Abbey-ish. And the sentimental value is diminishing.
Never the less, I found room for it all, with some shelves still open.
There is another bin or two in the garage for those empty spots.
An interested party is coming to look at the house in Palmer tomorrow, so I have been in high cleaning mode, going back and forth between houses daily. The country refrigerator looks like it's brand new, no easy feat. I scrubbed every shelf and drawer and the stove looks better than it did when we moved in. I hate to think how much I had let it all go. Eek. I even washed windows. So not me.
Not everything has been moved, like my studio and the two closets full of my art supplies. If my new studio had been finished as planned I would have insisted on bringing it all here, but there really is no where to put it until the floor and trim has been completed. As of now, I expect it to get finished on Friday. Fingers crossed.
Dave has been staying in the country and keeping a presence there, so as not to leave it vacant. I miss him and wish he were here in the new house, since he is missing the 'fun' of deciding where to put things. ha!
I am certain there will be furniture rearranging in our future.
Altho I haven't been paying attention much to my dieting, I am still losing weight. It may be all the excitement, or not wanting to mess up the new kitchen to cook. I am 1.2 pounds away from having lost 30 lbs. (!) I gotta recommend www.loseit.com as the reason.
