Early morning snuggles to prep for careful commutes.

So with the weather this time of year, things often change last minute. This morning appointments are bumped back because of slick roads, so I get a few extra cuddles before needing to head out the door for an extra cautious commute.

I’m enjoying the extra time with not quite awake Katherine.

I’m not usually very supportive of police because in big cities here in the US they tend to be very discriminatory and over bearing, especially to low income populations and minorites. However, Lawrence PD posted a funny but very appropriate disclaimer for the weather of the season, so I wanted to share that, especially since Nathan is going to be doing extra chauffeuring today.

Our unpacking yesterday got us off to a great start. I was able to nearly finish construction on my new closet custom fit desk. I have yet to finish assembly on the drawers (IKEA $60) but I did get the main desk surface and extra shelves cut and installed (boards from home Depot $35, plus hardware I already had).

I’m very excited to get the computer back up and my desk stuff unpacked. I’m so looking forward to my office being completed and functional. Happy dance!

We also made great headway on our living-room. Boxes are not unpacked yet, but furniture is setup again and it’s starting to feel like home with a few pictures being hung.

Still in chaos, Anya assembling side tables. She generally dislikes her picture being taken- ever; regardless of where it ends up, even if that’s nowhere.
This shot shows the recliner before I recovered the torn sections (a hazard of small children and older furniture).
Here you can see the recliner post reupholster. Also, the futon in this picture is ultimately going to end up downstairs in the large basement room, but I wanted to see how it would fit to accommodate a large gathering or meeting.

All in all, I’m happy with the progress we made yesterday. Nathan even got the washer dryer hooked up and running, so we’ll have clean laundry to put away next!

May you all feel comfortable in your home. May you find just the right combination of things to fit your needs and give your experience good character. May you find the colorful bits of your experience enjoyable, and make things colorful when they’re not already. May you have safe travels and appropriate time off. May you have quality time with kids and family. May you enjoy your days more often than not.
