...in which our plucky heroine notices how much has been accomplished...
In the last week/weekend, in addition to the usual and everyday chores:
added another storage shelf underneath the others on the west wall - intended as storage for upcoming sewing WIP's... but for the next two weeks it will be a Useful Shelf for houseguests, since my beloved parents will be arriving tomorrow for an extended visit!
I also added this small closet rod storage in the niche between the shelves on the east wall and the actual closet.
This is intended for either the use of my guests, or when the room in untenanted, as a spot to hang current sewing works-in-progress
My friend Kate kindly and thoughtfully cut a piece of white oak into a transition threshold to fill the gap between the new flooring and the hallway carpet. I am just delighted at how the wood she chose is such an excellent match!
Earlier this year Gersvinda gifted me with a big bag of pears... the ones I didn't just eat, turned into pear sauce. Surprisingly, as they cooked down, the pears turned a deep red, just like quince does!
The beginnings of salsa verde.... Once these cook down, and soften, will add chopped onion, jalapeno pepper, cilantro, a bit of salt, and some lime juice. There will be savory spicy condiment to enliven the next year (with special thanks to Marya for donating the tomatillos!)
