Plus, we cleared the old freezers off the back porch. This did two things for us; cleared space for a new chest freezer yet to be purchased, and once that's bought thawing and moving the other chest freezer that's outside the big house. Being on the porch, under a roof, will go a long ways to extending their service lifespans, and should also help decrease energy consumption. At least some. We'll also be moving the outside fridge over there.
The other thing it offered was space to work, which proved timely because the drum belt on the dryer died. That's now replaced, a fairly simple job if not easy (because of the way the belt is installed), and it is the third belt for that machine. Then again, the machine is about 10 - 12 years old. At least, I don't recall when we bought it, though I do recall buying it. The previous dryer was a Kenmore which Herself owned when we got together. Anyway, the dryer was only out of service a few days.
The office is ready to receive some more items as well; I need to move my library of old negatives and transparencies (slides) over. Curiously, I'm a bit reluctant to do this because we are in the start of the storm season, and they are at the moment packed in their 'evacuation' tubs. However, it needs to be done, and once there rather a bit of organization to catch up as well. The organization should actually help the proces of re-packing if necessary, because it should reduce the amount of volume needed. Right now there are a multitude of intact rolls that need to be cut down and put into negative wallets.
It should also free up a rolling platform that I'll want for other purposes, either in the office or in the studio. So it really needs doing.
