I have a ton of things I want to catch up on here, but once again, I've sort of let things build up to a point where it almost seems overwhelming to talk about... and if I let it go much longer, it will start seeming a bit silly to talk about because so much time has passed. Gonna have to work on getting better with that.

As for more recent stuff... today we finally had some piano movers come by and move our piano from the hallway in the basement (just off the garage) up to the living room. Yay! I felt really bad for those guys, though, because that sucker is HEAVY. It's a 1909 upright grand and they had to take it up the outside stairs to the main floor. One of the guys actually ended up slipping and seriously scraped up his arm on the stairs (to the point where I really hope he has it looked at, since it was bleeding pretty badly). But the piano is upstairs!

Here, have a photo! )

Now we get to let it sit there, all out of tune but still playable, for a month or so until it acclimates to the living room... then we'll call our piano tuner to have it worked on. I'm so happy to finally have it in the living room, though, and I rather suspect I'll be a LOT more likely to practice.

Numfar has suddenly started noticing things out in front of the house. The other day she was sitting next to me on the arm of my office chair when, out of the blue, she started growling... pretty much exactly like she does when she sees a raccoon or another cat right on the other side of the sliding glass doors. So I started looking around to see what had her in a tizzy and realized that she was growling at our neighbor across the street who was out getting his mail. o_O A little while later, she was sitting in the front window in the living room and started growling again. This time? It was a pair of deer across the street. I have to wonder if she doesn't have good depth perception or something and thinks they're right outside the window. Just a few minutes ago she started growling again because someone had pulled up in front of our house before driving off (they were using our driveway to turn around). Really not sure where this territoriality is coming from. The only thing that's changed is that we put a bird feeder outside one of the windows at the back of the house (which both cats will watch obsessively) and I suppose it's possible that it's made her more aware of the outside in general.

In other news, I've somehow managed to maintain my Geocaching streak to the point where it's getting a bit embarrassing to talk about... as of today, I have found at least one new Geocache a day for 950 consecutive days. I'm pretty much aiming to do 1001 days at this point, since I'm so close... and that will also let me end it before winter really sets in here. Since we moved, we don't have any unfound caches within walking distance of the house and if we get a big snowfall, I'd have to end the streak anyway... so, I may as well pick the day it happens.

We're still one episode behind on Marvel's Angents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Non-spoilery talk about the first two episodes. )
