Spring, At Last!

I haven't yearned for spring this way in many years and soon it will be here. Renovation does that. You want everything to be normal again. No chaos, no dust, no open paint cans. Soon the tulips will be up and the peonies, my favorites. Yesterday our new bed arrived, the very last bed sold by the wonderful furniture company Eldred Wheeler, which has been forced to close by the recession. When I happened to call to inquire about pricing for a later purchase, the rep told me the sad news, so I placed an order, although renovation is hardly the right time for such purchases. Still, it was a case of now or never. The recession is making me rethink the new room rate, to be announced soon, so stay tuned!
