Speaking of home, my little apt. got a major boost on Saturday with the arrival of my long-awaited couch! It is actually more comfortable than I remember and fit exactly as I had calculated. And I saw a very beautiful 1940s secretary desk that was almost perfect and now have the store owner on the look-out for the exact style that I'm looking for. I also got some quotes for framing some art work for the walls. There is still a LOT of work to do, but I'm definitely closer to my goal than I was on Friday.
