Thinking big: I'm in the house by myself. Is everything in the best place it can be, or have I simply left things where they are because I'm accustomed to it? It's time to engineer a room reorganization, starting with the deep cleaning of the only carpet in the house, in the front room. That room has a wall of books, a wall with a huge upright grand piano, and a lot of trunks. The wall of books will stay, all else is negotiable. There is an antique lawyer's bookcase (glass front) and a small secretary (serpentine front faux-Chippendale desk). It reminds me again of how much extra stuff there is in the house. BUT - if I move everything out of the sunroom and move the dining table and chairs from the den and a row of trunks to along the wall in the sunroom, I could put other stuff in the den as a conversation/TV media area that is better than where it is now kind of in the middle of the room.

Wheels are turning. And I think the COVID-19 quarantine episode has reached another stage - reimagining my space. Moving furniture is always a great way to generate endorphins, in case anyone is wondering why despite the hard work it feels so good to move stuff around like this.
