long, long day

After a leisurely breakfast, the day became a whirlwind of activity, putting away boxes untouched since the move-in, assisting my mother putting up lights and shelves… she’s got an uncanny knack for setting up spaces, and as exhausting as the day was (lunch down at Reading Terminal Market at 3 p.m., a quick trip to Trader Joe’s, and then back home for a naplet and another paroxysm of box-stowing and lightbulb replacing before Mixed Grill and conversation on the front porch about family trips to Europe and financial philosophies) the apartment looks a million times better than it did before my folks came visiting.

One of these years I really need to learn to this kind of space-reshaping on my own.

Trina’s cloud panels look really, really great on the walls. Pics to come.
