My lovely wife has gone a bit crazy become quite interested in decluttering the house. She comes home most evenings and immediately sets to cleaning out all the things we've hidden in and around the house.

Tonight she worked on the kitchen and here's what she found -- and then weeded out the things we don't really need.

Anybody need a wooden spoon or two?

Or maybe a spatula?

Perhaps you need a few of these? We have more than this picture shows.

And all our knives.

I think I may keep some of those big knives in case she starts eyeing my games and comics!

On the plus side, the house looks great!

Home Work

Before the end of the year, Julia's dad moved from his old office space, which he rented, into an office he's sharing with another law firm. That meant he had a whole office-worth of furniture to get rid of.

We were lucky enough to inherit a new table for Julia's studio (which has come in handy for her new sewing machine), I got a great new desk and mounted wall units, plus, we got a whole mess of cupboards and a nice counter for the garage!

This last Saturday, Julia's dad and brother came over to help mount all of the cupboards in my office and in the garage, so now it's time to show off the end results!

Here's my new desk, cupboard, and bookshelf, followed my my old bookcases that have been reorganized to not be quite so overstocked. Oh, we also hung one of my favorite prints on the wall that I've had since my Capital City days. (Click to enlarge.)

The garage now looks amazing and we have a ton of storage space that we haven't really had time to move into. We still have a lot of organizing to do out there, but it looks great! The six hours of work installing everything was certainly worthwhile!

Pretty great, huh?
