Well, we’re working hard, but that space is definitely not Loopified yet. We did paint a few walls. (Actually, there is no “we” about it. My mom came to help clean the new place the first day and when I started talking about needing some color on a few walls, she volunteered that my dad was a wonderful painter. Being a great sport, he agreed to take on the job on our very first day of moving in. So he gets all the credit!) I love walking in and seeing color instead of beige. This is the wall when you first walk in and we’ll put our Loopy sign up above there. Right now, the shelves are sadly empty. That’s the status. Painting is done, most shelves are up, but there are bags and boxes of yarn to unload and put away. There’s just no way to hurry that process up! It doesn’t feel like The Loopy Room yet, but I do have high hopes for it. I am really really really loving all of that space. (It’s going to fill up quickly. We have so much on order.)
On the home front, we introduced Zoe and Gracie today. It went so well! Not a hiss between the two until much later when they both went dashing after the same laser light and Zoe wanted dibs on it. In this photo, Zoe was interested in Gracie and Gracie was much more interested in being let out into a very big room, after her confinement in the guest room. They had a great time racing around and playing. Zoe is definitely the alpha cat, and Gracie is happy to let her have that roll. If I had known this was going to be so easy, I would’ve gotten a second cat ages ago. Why didn’t any of you tell me that I needed a second cat??
Hope you’re all having a good week. Your emails and blog comments have been so fun. (Yes, I’m woefully behind on answering emails – there is no computer in the Loopy Room yet. But I’m reading them all when I get home at night and love hearing from you. Soon, life will get back to normal. I think.)
