Service dog Newbie was excluded from a planned family event today, so I sent Greg with the food I'd made and am re-ordering the Library now that the storage-dedicated file cabinet is indoors; I also labeled our shared home office corner in that room, to catch the home administrivia we're generating.
It's very new, for Greg for things to be so organized without a secretary... so we check in with other about it often, as the orderliness possible here makes itself obvious.
With a home 1/5 the size of the PA house-- and a home office about 1/5 the size of his recent Rector's Office-- this new opportunity to play house is often hilarious. The press of blending families and searching out a new parish during our newlywed year didn't really allow us to do this before with any intentionality. Thank God for all the Tiny House shows we watched the last few years for ideas, or we'd both be nuts by now!
As the day went on, a bunch of cluttery containers disappeared from various spots in the house, their contents swallowed up into the file cabinets. The larger recliner swapped in last week was swiveled to its Library Is Open position, and viola! There was that spacious room again!
So I spent some time with my camera, planning the next work with Brandon on Tuesday, to add even more storage shelving.
I also reorganized a long counter in the kitchen that recently had its outlet restored to function-- back to the pre-Tyler Appliance Counter configuration. That's part of a long process of making the L-shaped cooking area a real two-cooks' kitchen.
This new fone has a really slow-learning autocorrect!
