Yesterday I went on an unpacking rampage, and processed about 2/3 of the boxes in the living room and rearranged the garage. Now we can reach the sofa in the living room (which was previously barricaded with boxes), and the boxes in the garage are efficiently packed and organized by content types, so we can actually find things we’re looking for. They are not unpacked yet, though, because I need Mike’s input and help with organizing his items. That will likely have to wait for the weekend.
On the bright side, however, it appears likely that I will actually be able to use the loom soon. (That was why I rearranged the garage!) There are things packed on either side, and I’ll have to run an extension cord for electricity, but I think I have enough space to throw a shuttle. A few repairs will need to be made first, but nothing too difficult.
Most of my stuff is now unpacked – the boxes that remain are mostly Mike’s stuff, which he will have to unpack and organize himself. I’m guesstimating that I have another half-day’s worth of unpacking (random/miscellaneous items from dining and living rooms, plus cleaning up my studio) and then I’ll be DONE DONE DONE! Which means I’ll finally be able to start fiber work again. Hallelujah.
And here is the latest zucchini photo:
It’s getting harder and harder to show the entire plant, and to give an accurate idea of how fast the thing’s growing. So here is a single tendril. Five days ago, it was barely encroaching on the patio, and now look at it!
It’s grown at least two feet in the last five days. Egad!
And here is something equally ominous and exciting:
Yes! It is starting to bear its first fruits. Let the flood of zucchini commence!
