Garage o' Books

Today, I got help from my sister's family to empty out our storage space. My tiny nieces didn't carry much, but they helped with morale. Everything's moved into our garage, now, and in the process, I was reunited with boxes and boxes of books that I've been away from. We still need to find shelves for many of those books to go on, but it's good to have them close. Every time I checked a box, I found books I was glad I still had: a book of Pirandello plays, fanfic written by Nichelle Nichols, the MW Dictionary of Usage. Everything fit in so nicely, and it's wonderful seeing the garage look so homely.

So everything is moved in, in the sense that all of our things are here, but we're still fixing things up. We're still getting the cabinets spruced up, so we can finish getting the kitchen together, and we need to deal with some doors that aren't closing right. But something about owning a house is resurfacing my set-construction carpentry skills, and I'm getting excited about fixing things. There are some jobs that seem a bit too big/time-consuming to tackle, so we'll still have someone over to help with getting some new rain gutters, but we'll be putting in a medicine cabinet on our own, and shelving to come.
