As you can see, our Ikea Hemnes dresser fits perfectly into the cubby that we didn't know what to do with. But......now that we look at things, our bed does not go. With anything. Much discussion, weighing all the options, has left us (me) with a new task. I will paint the bed to match the dresser.
Onto the computer I get, and am amazed at the ingenuity of many young women out there who have painted their Ikea furniture. A trip to the hardware store, some experimental paints, and I think I can do this. Stay tuned.

As I write this, a few days after the tree event, most of the snow you see is gone with just a hill in front of the house where it slides off the roof.
Darrell took a quick video of the giant going down.
We now have a sizeable pile of wood mulch next to our house. I had thought it would be good to spread in our landscaping efforts, but it is full of pine needles and not pretty stuff. So much for my idea. We went out and bought a rake.......

Darrell has been assembling furiously since we landed, among his projects an entertainment center, under-counter lights, an 8 drawer dresser (which fit in its spot perfectly), and others too numerous to list.

And so begins the task of finding just the right place for everything. Footage-wise, our new home has about 400 more square feet....the kitchen seems to have the same amount of storage...or more, but just different.
As I sit typing this, we have the furniture pretty much arranged and most of the kitchen is put away. We are still missing the hardware to put our bed together, so we will be in the guesst room tonight. Good way to try out the new mattress.
