Day Six: Snowstorm
I’m still aching but the good news is, there’s a blizzard headed my way. And me with an antique furnace and a sick dog, not to mention a friend recovering from a virus (“Come down and stay with me in the cottage, we’ll have fun . . . blearg”), so now that I’m semi-back on my feet, I had to go out and haul salt and firewood and corn muffins and quilting magazines (guests do not live by muffins alone), all of which means the office is once again on the back burner.
However I did manage to pry my ass off my recovery bed long enough to do some work. It still looks like hell but my office chair is in there and the computers are set up. I’ll get the printers going today. The furniture is painted. The carpet is mostly down (gotta love carpet squares). The door to the garage is still a cold hollow core nightmare, so I’ll have to do something about that, and I have to start putting things away very soon because I’m tired of falling over boxes of office supplies, but hey, there’s some progress even if it isn’t pretty.
And since I got firewood, I won’t have to burn the desk to keep warm if the power and/or furnace goes out. So overall, it’s a win.
The office at this point (the meds belong to the dog):
