I unpacked a lot of boxes today, and some of them were dusty. I also unrolled a rug, which was very dusty. My eyes are now a special shade of red-pink. I’m sure it won’t be long before everything will be unpacked and the dust will have settled, but, until then, I’ll be the one with the puffy red eyes and constant sneeze.
The apartment is still a mess, but it is beginning to feel like a home. Small things sometimes make a big difference when you are trying to create that sense of warmth and familiarity in a space. I think getting all the books in the bookcases made a big difference today.
Today’s thank you goes to my mom, who bought me a lovely warm jacket for the chilly New Hampshire fall still to come.
