I started my morning drilling holes in my ceiling to hang plants. I have now demonstrated that you can knock over a blooming orchid multiple times and even have it fall down behind some boards and blocks, and the blooms and plant survive. Here's to having a little more room for the plants to spread out. Somewhere in this apartment there are at least three iron 'barrel of monkeys' s-hooks that I've had for 25 years, but good luck finding those, so I got some nice iron hanger hooks with an open globe spiral in the middle. Unfortunately, I took a tumble while hanging them.
I have not put a hook into the ceiling in the bedroom yet, but I do have one, and I purchased an extra iron hook for that. But I think I'll wait a little before getting up there--I'm a little sore.
Here are this morning's results:

And this is with the iron hangers:

I don't have ice, but I do have ice packs--I think I'm going to put it on my left shoulder/neck/back, which took the brunt of the fall. Then I'll get up and start working on eliminating the entertainment centre. It's been a good day--I took some friends out to Texas Roadhouse for salmon meals and then we went to Howard Curry Shoes, Rite Aid, and K-Mart getting new shoes, corn pads, and flip-flops (respectively) for a friend who's on his feet an awful lot, has to wear dress shoes most of the weekend while doing a standing job, and whose feet has been giving him fits.
I've got about an hour and a half until I go back to get him and take him to a meeting. So there's the entertainment centre full of books to deal with in the meantime, but first the icing and the lying down.
