The Black Hole

This has been a long time coming and finally, with hubby out of town, the chance has arisen for me to duel the "black hole" - aka our basement.

A while back we remodeled and practically everything from our main floor either went to the basement or the garage. We still have not quite recovered but I was DETERMINED to take the challenge and regain "turf" for projects. So, armed with vacuum, dust cloth, garbage bags and whatever other armour required, I made my advance.

As you can see, it was not a pretty sight...
...every where I turned things were piled up, in the wrong spot, orphaned, you name it...AND we seem to have had a guest mouse or two...
Our basement will never be one of those that gets finished; however, it is the one spot in the house I can pin quilts and do those activities where I don't want to worry about making a mess. So...4 hours later, I can report that I won this particular battle......though I can't really say I won the war - what IS in all those dang boxes and bins anyways? Sigh - time for a glass of wine - just remember, it's the little victories that count ;->.
