Hello everyone! wow, are we tuckered out. yesterday was moving day – we moved some of our furniture into a storage unit, donated a truckfull of stuff to Goodwill and also moved everything into our tiny house. utilizing all our hidden storage spaces. the storage under the kitchen cabinets is awesome. Shane built the kitchen cabinets above the wheel well enclosures, so they’re about 7″ off the floor – enough space for storage tubs I have. So that’s where writing and drawing supplies are stored, extra toiletries, tools, and cleaning supplies.
yesterday, the icing on the cake after a ten hour day packing moving and cleaning was trying to re-build our incinerating toilet… in vain. we had bought a used Incinolet off craigslist and it needs a new motor and new fan, and probably a new catalyst. they’re complicated. we were fried after working on it and finally realizing it wasn’t going to function. I drove to Safeway to use the bathroom. Shane ran out to pick up cat litter and a bucket. It was an impromptu toilet solution. that actually doesn’t smell at all! which is a relief after the stench from our smoking Incinolet. I was laughing hysterically because Shane selected the “Multi-Cat” cat litter. That might be the new nickname for the house: Multi-Cat. I think that is just so cute that he selected multi cat. Shane and Carrie – multi cats.
then, today we had to go back to the rental house and clean it all. exhausting. the landlord is going to be short-selling / foreclosing and had a realtor stop by when we were finishing up and we told her about our downsizing adventure. we said we were moving into a smaller house and she said “smaller than this?” referring to our 2 BR 2 BA rental house. haha. yeah. about the size of the back porch of this house. Realtors. They seem to like big houses.
We’re now at the coffee shop enjoying iced tea and iced coffee watching the solar eclipse! keep blinding myself trying to stare at the sun. I can see it though – it looks like a bite out of a cookie. A bright, burning ball of fire cookie.
