(One section of) My Living Room
I've survived the first section of my building's gas line reconnection project. The workmen did a great, i.e., very neat, job of opening the walls for the pipes to be reconnected, or if necessary replaced. This opening in the living room is for my next door neighbor's pipes and one in the bedroom is for my pipes. The next step is a visit from the plumber sometime in the next few weeks.
When the work in all the apartments has been completed, Con Edison (our utilities provider) and then the New York City Buildings Department will be here to inspect what's been done. After we pass inspection the walls will be sealed up again and repainted. Then I can move the furniture back, rehang paintings and make some order out of the chaos that is not in the picture.
I'm continuing to go through my books and happily have already sold two books out of the forty or so that I've listed. My goal is to make sure that when this project is over I don't have any random stacks of books and everything fits back in my existing bookshelves. Though there may be space to accumulate new books, and I'm sure new books will find their way here, I',m going to use the library and enjoy what I already own. I've (re)discovered dozens of books that I've been "meaning" to read and that's my goal.
I had a wonderful walk in the park this morning and took photographs for this week's Pink Saturday fun. Looking forward to sharing them with you in the first Pink Saturday of August.
As ever, thanks for visiting and take care. Stay well and keep cool!
