I'm thinking it's time for a foray into a room I rarely use, mostly because of the way it's set up and because the dogs have claimed it as a place to sleep (three black or dark brown dogs in a dark room on a dark carpet are the classic recipe for tripping hazard!)

My piano gets little attention but I still do enjoy playing, despite it's out-of-tune status and one high C hammer having fallen off. It is from about 1885 and has been in the family since it was new. I'd love someday to restore it when I have such a thing as disposable cash.

There are several trunks, book cases, and a wall of books that could use dusting, and there is stuff in there I intend to sell on eBay that is out of sight so not organized or listed. There is a large reclining lounger chair that needs the seat cushion restored with an upholstery cover (the leather one ripped). I have the materials, so there isn't anything keeping me from working on that now that I have the sewing machine set up (and it is a machine designed for use with thick layers of fabric.) Perhaps a special Mother's Day project since there isn't any chance I'll see the kids this year. A gift for myself.

That said, I'll be careful with the lifting; I pulled a muscle yesterday hefting a large bag of dog food.
