Wow, we have been here for a full month already. In some ways it seems like we have been here forever and in others it seems like just yesterday we were just learning we were even going to be moving to Utah. I haven’t cared for the weather here so far. It seems, just as in other places in the US right now, that winter does not want to leave. We get various teasers, but for the most part, winter weather is what we have had. I am really missing my bike rides and am anxious to get them started again.
Next week I have the opportunity to participate in a medical study related to the issues that I had with my last baby that resulted in her having 9 blood transfusions (4 of which happened before she was even born.) I will be in Indianapolis for a couple of days, with one day being completely open. Does anyone live in the area and would like to get together? Let me know and I will give you the particulars. Otherwise, I will plan on just hanging out at the mall and nearby art museums.
In other news, the studio is coming together. I am starting to get really excited, no I am not, I have been excited for a long time. But I am getting more and more antsy to use the place. Some parts of the room actually look like it is getting close to being done. I love looking at the end of the room that has the fireplace. Just a couple more boxes to remove and that end of the room will look great.
We also figured out how to use the fireplace. It had to be wired for the switch and everything. But when we flipped the switch, only the pilot light would come on. But I found the remote for it and now I can have a beautifully inviting fire in the fireplace. (obviously, I still have a few things to clean up on the mantle.)
The forging area and equipment tables are finally finished as well.
It is still a big mess right now, but that is just because I am still trying to figure out where to put everything and all the associated accessories. I can’t wait to have it done and do the proper studio tour.
I even have a little helper. Our new home has central vacuum. I haven’t had one of those before. But my baby LOVES the fact that she can now help out. In fact, you should hear the screams when we make her stop. HAHAHA
Now if only I could get her to keep that love of cleaning. Why is it that they want to help and do the cleaning when they really aren’t able to, and when they are old enough to do it and do a good job at it, they refuse to? Sigh.
One area that hasn’t really had any attention paid to it yet is the sink area. In fact, there isn’t a sink yet. I still need to do some shopping for that.
Sigh, what a mess.
But all in all, it is coming together.
