Bigger and Better Things

I finally moved this weekend, a step long in the making. The move itself was grueling, with my parents and me up and working almost non-stop from early morning to late a night in a four-day marathon of lugging suit cases and heavy furniture, cleaning, painting, trips to Home Depot and IKEA, and assembling oh so many shelves, beds, and tables. However, the new place is glorious - spacious and bright, and fully ours! There is a southwest-facing sun room of sorts, a large balcony, and even a little plot which I might be able to claim in the building's communal garden. So there is room for a lot more plants and a lot more books - room, that is, to grow.

Lots of space for the collection

Now if only Verizon could get our phone line and Internet connection to work as they should...
