07:26 am: Things are heating up
It has been quite a busy week, both at work and at home.

It was interesting taking Benny to the fair. Of course, we were surrounded by food on all sides, which made things a little tricky. He kept trying to drag me out to the barbecue stand when he wasn't sniffing under tables in search of dropped popcorn. However, he was very good around all the people who stopped by to pet the beagles.

I've been spending a lot of time scrambling to get papers signed and finances organized for closing on the house next week. I'm going to have to buy more ink for my printer after all the documents I've had to go through.

My balcony garden is really taking off with the warmer temperatures. The "Chomley Farran" dianthus that I bought last fall has finally bloomed, and several other flowers are on the way. There are a few more tomatoes starting on my plant, which is now about four feet tall. Even my cucumber seedling is beginning to flower, though it's still in a 4" pot waiting to be transplanted at the new house.

I'm planning to spend this weekend cleaning and packing. Also, my building manager's wife is getting rid of a bunch of her cookbooks, so she offered to give me as many as I want. I'm going to need a library in my kitchen at this rate.

Is there any room that is not enriched by adding a library to it?

Best of luck with the packing - always my least favorite part of moving ><

I think the humidity in the bathroom would wreak havoc on the paper, but otherwise I'd agree.

That's so exciting! I can't wait to see a million pictures of the new house when you move in! Will you be moving at the end of the month?

The closing date is Thursday. Assuming all goes well, my parents will start moving my stuff in after that. I probably won't completely move until Saturday.

What interesting stripes on that flower! Good luck moving; at least you'll have help (if not lots more stuff ha ha)! Will you unpack all the manga first?*

*This is only partly a joke.

Sadly, I won't really have anywhere to put it. The three bookshelves in my current apartment aren't nearly enough for the whole collection.
