Now that the floor is finished, the piano decided that it liked the looks of the new room and has made itself at home at the far end, near the future stairwell opening.
You will notice in the picture that we were rolling the piano on some old cardboard boxes. This is because one of the piano coasters does not roll very well, and we didn’t want to scratch the newly installed floor. This move took place partly so that we could play music for the local Gideons. A banquet is planned for Thanksgiving day (Monday October 11). You may also notice that there is some basil drying on a blanket in the background. We had a hard frost recently, so all the garden produce has been moved in.
The most noticeable change was not the absence of the piano in the living room. Rather, the most noticeable change was the great improvement in sound incurred by the move. I suppose this may have something to do with the fact that all the books were taken off the top, too. It needs a little tuning now, but in spite of that, we all appreciate hearing the piano from all over the house when it is played.
Psalm 95:1 “O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.”
