The three day holiday weekend gave me the extra time I needed to finish up my new nightstand project, then get it installed in my bedroom. (Flash and no-flash photos here.) Feels great that my staining projects are now two down, two to go!
This ongoing heat wave has made me daily very grateful for the huge blessing of my portable AC in my bedroom. My bedroom is upstairs and so it's been getting up to 85 some days now, which means the portable AC has to run for hours just to cool it down. If not for that, I'd probably be sleeping on an air mattress in the laundry room by now. I do refrain from hugging and kissing it, but it does get an affectionate pat on the 'head' at times. =)
When I moved in last year, I enjoyed the aesthetic blessing of underground power lines in my neighborhood. Now that I work from home half of the time, I'm even more grateful. They're so much safer when thunderstorms come through, which means I can keep doing my job despite the weather without too much concern.
A long weekend was also quite a blessing for my Geren books final review. I'm 2/3rds through my first sweep of the third Geren book already!
Last Friday I received the special stipend money from my employer, Monday I ordered a new desk chair, it was delivered Wednesday, and Friday (today) I started using it for my work from home setup. What a blessing!
