Renovation Revision J, Enduring

I skipped over Revision I for India, because Lowes had no more wall mirrors. However, Petersburg Walmart had a plethora. I bought two and they are installed. That's five door mirrors on the wall behind the shelves. Why mirrors, you ask? Because home decor reflects on the owner.* Rev J will see the 1'x1' mirror tiles used extensively.

I was too tired to take pictures, but there are now several. My Better Homes & Garbage 8-Cube Organizer was delivered earlier, left in the middle of the driveway on a rainy day. In a cardboard box. Pressboard furniture, left in the rain. I shudder to think what would have happened if I hadn't run outside and dragged it in. *shudder* *shudder* See? Now it just requires some assembly.

I need to reorganize my clothing, since this will be my dresser. I have a laundry basket full of clean clothes and such. Also sheets and pillowcases are awaiting folding.

By way of a farm report, I harvested the remaining Romaine from Harvey** and a couple of tomatoes from Ranch Four. Add the usual crunchies and dressing and there it was - a salad from my own crops. Also arrived from Amazon, two 9-Pod Romaine Lettuce Kits. When I ordered them, I was under the misapprehension that the Kits were mixed Romaine, red and green. Some things must be endured.

I'm not going to start them on Harvey right now, because I have four pepper plants there. I don't need them all competing for the grow light (and they would! They are all light hogs.)

The AeroVoir reservoirs are in commission, feeding water to Harvey and Harvey Too. They still have no names of their own.

Revision K is in effect. The cubical storage unit is from Better Homes & Garbage. The older unit (under Phredd and Ethel) is the Walmart Brand, Mainstays, The Mainstays unit is slightly smaller in the dimensions of the cubes, ergo smaller overall. The BH&G unit is an extremely tight fit in the bed nook. That tiny difference was already allocated... and now it isn't.

I will not be surprised if I use every letter of the alphabet, English, Greek, Russian, and Arabic. I must improvise, adapt, overcome. I will blaze a path for others to follow. Surrender is not in my creed.***

** As noted in previous posts, all my hydroponics units have names. Harvey is easier to say than AeroGarden Harvest 6-Pod Hydroponic Garden.

*** I must have watched Heartbreak Ridge some time in the recent past.
