Sorry I've been scarce this week; it's been a bit crazy at work, and I've completely exhausted by the time I get home, so I haven't done much blogging...or, really, anything else besides watching The Tudors, which I'm totally into right now (I'm late to that party, I know). But I DID sort out the Gordian Knot of a cable situation under the computer desk:
|cord spaghetti: worse than it looks in the picture!|
Rather than just cutting the whole thing apart (which is what I wanted to do), I unplugged everything and then hooked it all back up in an order that made sense, tied all the cords together and up off the floor, and then hung a simple white curtain behind the desk (taped to it with masking tape, actually, tee-hee).
...which is TOTALLY OBVIOUS in this picture; but really, in person, you hardly notice that there's a sheet there since the white blends in with the sheer white curtains (which, in this picture, are NOT being done any favors by those cheap, old, yellow mini-blinds, but that's an issue for another day...and it only looks like this at night (see first picture), so, I'll only have people over to my house during the day for a while, I guess).
Here's a shot of the entire "room", a.k.a. the north end of my football field of a living room. To the left is the kitchen, and to the right is the back of the couch and the wicker chair I posted about the other day. Last week? Week before? Yeesh. This time of year messes with my head.
Anyway, I also moved that set of four paintings from the corner where the blue one is to make room to stand all those guitars [neatly] on end (instead of stacked on the floor like they were before), and also to provide more of a divider between the two "rooms" than that big plant provided on its own.
Purple = things that will each be getting their own post soon, as soon as I get my butt out from in front of the TV.
