I’m so close to being back to normal, I’m really happy. Today I finished Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and walked to the library to take out the Half Blood Prince, and then reserved the Deathly Hallows (on CD!). Can’t wait to finish the series, honestly. It’s moving and hits something that I haven’t been able to pin point, but anyway. I didn’t end up painting today, because I’m out of watercolor paper and was busy doing some cleaning and then was sort of intent on listening to the last few chapters.
Yesterday, we listened to the Order of the Phoenix while putting together our futon. We finally got one! I’m thrilled, I spent the rest of the evening cleaning and re-organizing the office around it and letting the mattress set. Now we can have people over and they can sleep on something that’s not a love-seat.
It’s taking on more of a modern-meets-whimsy look now that there’s actually more than a bookshelf for furniture in there. I tried taping up my fairy houses, but the blue one keeps falling, so it’s hovering over my cardboard desk at the moment, which I do hope to replace eventually, and maybe get some decent tables and a rug. We’ll see. We can also have a cat now, so I cleared out and cat-proofed the closet since, unfortunately, that’s where the litter box will have to be. But we’ll get a good one, so it shouldn’t hurt anything anyway. I’m excited.
