well, i was in north carolina for four whole weeks, during which time i taught fiber arts, had two weeks to myself, and then took a watercolor class! it was glorious, and it even took me four more days to meander on home, mostly because i couldn't quite face it.
but face it i did, and eventually even opened up my new projects on ravelry, about which more in a subsequent post. but this post is to document what i've gotten done on the house so far, and what needs to be done (below, in bold) in the next two weeks, before i go back to school :(
today i really got a prodigious amount done, though. first, i dropped off five more boxes of books at the radio station, which i had culled from their temporary stoage in the study yesterday. then i reshelved the ones remaining (willy nilly, but organizing the things in things is another phase entirely!) and cleared away most of the detritus in the study. so we're back to this now:
Anyway, the study will be good for taking my watercolors into to work on when the painting space becomes unbearable, and now just needs some more squaring away, and a good cleaning (dust 1/4 inch thick!) I also ordered a shredder to arrive sometime next week, so i can turn the two decades worth of receipts presently in the study closet into excelsior to pack all the knick-nacks in the house away with, about which more later, so I think i will also clear out the study closet in this phase, to give me more storage room in this phase (even though most closets are definitely next phase!)
Once i got the study culled, i had some boxes of stuff to take back to school:
and a bunch of art stuff to go back into the studio:
The other thing that needs to happen is to pack away all the knitting projects currently piled on the hall tree
and that will be the end of this phase.
Oh, and i don't want to spend more than two hours per day doing all this, so i can have my last two weeks of studio time, of course! So that's my to-do list.
