I just this morning unpacked my last box, and I'm expecting Tommy the Junkman this afternoon, to haul away the last of the moving debris. I am totally beat; I could not have imagined what a huge job this would be. Yay. Yet, sigh. I am so far from finished, for although everything is more or less put away, it all needs to be reorganized properly, and I have only hung a few pictures. I am starting to be able to think a bit about what I'd like to do...but first, I've got to start wrapping the Christmas presents.
My 24X50 stainless cooks worktable arrived, and this thing, which weighs 90lbs., was put together by me, unaided, despite complete lack of written instructions. It may detract, slightly , from the glory surrounding this accomplishment, when I tell you that I put it together twice. First, I carefully assembled it top-down on the living room rug, to keep it's surfaces unscratched. Then, when I realized that it was too wide, by 1/2", for the kitchen door (stove, etc. came in through fire-escape), I took it apart and reassembled it in the kitchen. It is every bit as I had hoped, providing a ton of counter space, plus under-shelf storage, and I think it looks cool , too- photo to follow.
In the meantime, you can tell me if I'm living in a Christmas card, or a Japanese print? Yes, that is a giant holly tree, covered with red berries. It's right outside my living room window- built in seasonal decoration.Happy Winter Holidays.
