Well, I was going to make cardamon buns (see BBC’s good food site). I haven’t started, so the chances of that happening are decreasing, rapidly!
We need to go to the storage, with a tape measure and writing implements in hand. There’s a cabinet (about 2″ too wide to fit INSIDE my wagon) which I bought for the attic. There’s also the 2nd Hoosier cabinet, purchased for the revised kitchen.
With measurements in hand, I can determine what will go where. (Attic cabinet measurements and attic measured for it, done! 6:19pm) And, if we manage to get both cabinets out of the storage this summer, that with all the other things we’ve purged, will probably let us move the remaining furniture and books to a smaller unit, which will save us $, every month.
The major steps remaining of the house revision (except the neverending culling and cleaning) are:
- Finish knot sealing, priming, painting the living room.
- Get the cabinet into the attic from the storage.
- Get the table from the kitchen and its leaves sold. (Leaves have been taken from the attic and are in the kitchen.)
- Get the wooden floor cleaned, sanded and finished.
- Get the windows out of the kitchen into the living room. (Long story, another day.) which will allow us to do the next step, below.
- Get the sidelight window and zinc windows in the kitchen (part of the great kitchen move)
I have decided again, alas, that I pretty much HAVE to sell my wrought iron candlabra. I love it dearly but there’s nowhere to put it, except where it is. (It screws to the wall.) It’s too big to really work there, and there’s a limited number of walls in this house where it could fit. Wall space is at a premium, since our household is comprised of people who’re photographers, artists and book collectors, which means there’s enough artwork and books to cover every wall in the house with art or bookcases, at least 2 or 3 times.
I know I’ll make money if I sell it, I got it ridiculously cheap. But I didn’t buy it for resale, I bought it because I loved it and instead of the high price I expected, it was cheap; I snatched it up! It’s just too big, sigh. If it was 36″ across instead of 45″, it would be much easier. I keep deciding to sell it, then finding another possible “answer,” and then reluctantly admitting the new idea won’t work. . . .
I’m off to go get a bowl of cereal, my last cup of coffee and begin my day.
Have a great Sunday everyone!
