Setting the lab back up this week

The floors in the cottage have their new finish, and the lab now has a new coat of paint in the same color as my bedroom (a soft gray green that I have loved). My furniture has been out in the garage for a week, and I’ve been staying at my parents’ house. Tomorrow everything will be moved back into the house. It was a big job to move all my stuff and I don’t plan to ever do it again, but I think it was worthwhile. The floor finish had failed in a number of places, but it looks really nice now.

The picture above is my bedroom (no furniture) with my lettuce pot garden outside the door. The photo below is the lab, also empty. It will be full again tomorrow and hopefully back in action by the end of the week! 🙂


Update: Lab closed Sept 18 – Oct 2

Time to check in. I’m having some work done in the lab next week (floors and paint), so I am packing things in boxes this week to clean up. While I am at it, I’m reorganizing the large ingredient cabinet on the wall and creating more storage space in the refrigerator and shelf unit in the basement. I have been out of space in the lab wall cabinet, so this will really help. The painting should be done on the 28th-29th, and I’ll put the lab back together after that. I will be unable to ship any orders while the lab is closed, from Sept 18 until about Oct 2. I hope I’ve taken care of most people who need orders. Quite a few packages went out last week.

You may have seen the California Valley Fire on the news. The fires are just to the north and east of us, very close but not threatening our area. So sad to see many people lose their homes. We may get a little rain tomorrow (only half an inch, but even that would be a big help to the firefighters).
