Beginning the ceiling reinforcement in a couple of places where I can see the foundation shift is pulling tape off drywall; the screws I picked up turn out to be flat black and I was looking for a more subtle gray like the contractors used, so it's a trip to the big box store. While I'm out I have a few groceries to pick up. I've put this off, but I need to start now while everything is in place, not when sagging happens like before. My old house is really pitching around on the foundation this summer.

The moving-the-bench operation revealed a box of books for the used book store and an item for sale on eBay that should be stored elsewhere. There is now room to sit and change shoes, the intended use of this bench. It was purchased at a local hardware store that sold lots of solidly attractive Mexican furniture; that store is gone so this is probably my last piece of Mexican pine furniture (I have several others that have worked perfectly for the task I bought them for).
