We go months without being touched by another human when we live alone. COVID-19 times are strange indeed.

A friend called this morning and asked what I was going to give myself for my birthday. I hadn't thought about doing anything like that, and with so few places to go, anything decorative or new as far as clothing or jewelry would go unused. I have worn out a couple of pairs of shoes lately and have a DSW coupon for my birthday month, so shoes are a possibility, but they'd be casual.

That set me to thinking, though; if I were to put in something like a new piece of furniture I'd love one of those cabinets that houses a Murphy bed and get rid of a regular bed in the craft room, opening up floor space and room for a cutting table in there. All of these family antiques mean the swap is highly unlikely, but I COULD go ahead and rearrange that room again. It's set up like a bedroom with my craft stuff on two walls. The bed has room on three sides now but if I moved it to the corner that would open up several more feet that now serve as access to the closet. No way I'm going to move the large cabinet I built years ago to house all of my daughter's stuff (there was a time when none of the floor was visible; the cabinet cured that) but I think there's room for the bed next to it on that wall. Moving furniture is good exercise and generates endorphins. I got a big bang out of moving all of the front room and sunroom contents recently, now it's time for another revitalized room.
