Figuring out the plan for home. There is walkies necessary, but with a gimpy pooch, I don't know how long that will go. I need to water the gardenette (the four garden plants I have in the backyard in pots), and I need to get the last porch hardiwall up, which I was planning to do this weekend.
I also need to look at how much space in the Room Where No One Walks remains after Lauren's departure, since she was using that for a lot of storage, and I really need to reclaim part of my life again. I know there's stuff in that room that I packed to get rid of a while ago (stuff like books) as well as a bunch of stuff from the time in The Gulag, but mostly it's just a disorganized mess. If it were organized somewhat, I could very possibly move the filmmaking supplies into there and open up the dining room and living room for usable space again-- it would move me a long way toward being visitor-friendly again. Yes, it would be illusion, but my life is illusion, so what the hell.
Originally I wanted to clear that room out and use it as the first point for serious remodeling one room at a time; it needs some pretty heavy-duty stuff done to it to repair the damage done from a previous leaky roof or something similar, as well as replacing two windows, but realistically that can wait. It can be used for now as temporary-but-organized dry storage.
