Three wall scrolls hang in front of the window, because there are no curtains or blinds yet.

From the outside, the wall scrolls light up nicely.

First time in a year that their car is parked in the driveway, and they're home, with the lights on, after dark.

This counter needs to be cleared. The fragile antiques are in danger.

Coffee maker and coffee grinder. Part of their morning routine. They occupy prime kitchen real estate - the counter between sink and stove.

Another little coffee maker, toaster, and microwave oven. Also coffee filters, paper towels, and banana.

And there's a drawer missing, next to the fridge.

The cupboard to the right of the fridge mostly contains fragile things they don't use often.

The cupboard to the left of the fridge has food. Almost every bit of it purchased at Trader Joe's.

Oh, this is a bad sign -- clothes heaped on top of the dresser instead of in the drawers or in the hamper/laundry basket.

There are a few things on top of the other dresser as well.
