Put away everything "kitchen" that was left... we each puttered a bit here and there, and I decided to make a pot of coffee, even though I can't find the filters I know we brought with us. Found the gallon teabags this morning, after I'd made a pitcher of half-herbal and half-Earl Grey last night to have some ready to drink in the fridge. :/ Can't find whatever we know had to have made it into the "last" box... like boxcutters, and krazy glue, and dishwasher pods, and and and and.
We made a trip to Lowe's for a variety of needs (including coffee filters and dishwasher pods); got home and put the box fan in the window and got started doing other stuff, too. We're going to install DIY bookshelves above (probably all of ) the doorframes; we may eventually build some of them specifically as cat runs. We'd bought one 1x6x8 board and had them cut it; even though we had measured twice, we didn't get it right. Fortunately, our on-site maintenance man, Daniel, probably has a circular saw and will trim one piece down for us. Gotta figure out the exact Spanish to make that request; not sure if our mutual "Spanglish" will suffice. Tomorrow, maybe.
Here are some pics of today's accomplishments:
|Angled mirror and curved shower bar, installed by me. We had to buy the shower curtain, because the last one got TRASHED.|
|New coat/key rack, installed mutually, due to the enclosed anchors being TOO STUPID to actually hold the damn thing. The last rack was left where we'd hung it in Thomasville.|
|Stephen's been unloading media boxes/bins since they first walked in the door two? three? days ago. We have a LOT of movies! The box fan is new. The table and chairs were donated by Stephanie two days ago.|
|I installed the pots/pans rack as well as the coffee mug rack. No new purchases in this photo.|
|The utensils rack and the wall tchotckes, which we already had, got hung up by me today. Where's Grumpy?|
Now, to just get the prospects calling STEPHEN... ;)
