Lift, Load, Unload

“I do not pray for a lighter load, but for a stronger back.”
-Phillips Brooks

This past weekend was packed with lifting, loading, and unloading.

We sold our cement garden furniture on craigslist. So that was at least an hour of intense heavy lifting (in the rain, no less)--but somehow I found my inner strength to lift the table, which I had been unable to budge before.

And, then we promptly spent our profit on IKEA furniture. We left the megastore with more than we intended--it took quite a bit of giggling and finagling to get the boxes in our compact car--but our loft upstairs has a spiffy new (and less handmade!) look.However, look what's on sale next weekend at IKEA. Isn't that our luck! Maybe we will be getting our second set of shelves sooner than I thought.
