Floor saga update...

Weekend before this past one I took a break for a sisters camping trip. My sister Sherri and I loaded up the Jeep and headed up to the North Georgia forest service roads after work. Didn't make it in time to work in day light so put the tent up with light from lanterns. It was just a bit cold that night too so slept with many layers. Our camp stove was being difficult so cooked all our meals over the flame with a nifty grill table gadget. All in all it was a beautiful weekend with a touch of color on the trees. Even did a little off roading on some rugged trails and visited a lovely waterfall.

This past weekend was a long one for me since I needed to use up some vacation time. Most of it was dedicated to painting some trim and installing the flooring. Made great headway with the help of my awesome friend Rebecca and my awesome Mom.

I was hoping to get the basemold installed and furniture put back in but lost a day over drama from escaped kitties. My little furry children are indoor kitties because of neighbor dogs, busy road, and sundry wild animals who will eat them. A door blew open and two of them escaped causing two nights of worry, a few tears here and there, and chasing down leads from caring neighbors. Finally got them back and we are all calmed down now.

I have to say I'm really happy with how the floor is turning out and I love the color. I'm hoping to get the stairs done by Thanksgiving and then the view from the front door will be taken care of. I have a feeling that with the holidays and getting Christmas cards made that the kitchen and family room won't happen until January and my bedroom in February. We shall see.
