Finally, finally, we have a kitchen floor! It's wonderful and feels so much nicer on your bare feet first thing in the morning than nasty cold concrete! There is still a lot of detail work to be done, like the little trim pieces around the edges and the doors painted and put back up in the pantry and laundry 'room' (closet) but I'm going to be patient about that stuff because WE FINALLY HAVE A KITCHEN FLOOR!
Keith has vowed to never ever do a wood floor ever ever again. Jobs like that are best left to the professionals.
And in celebration of having a new floor (finally!), yesterday I did some long overdue major cleaning in the living room, taking all the books out of the bookshelves and all of the doodads out of the cupboard, cleaning all the books, doodads, bookshelves, and cupboard, and actually MOVING the bookshelves and cupboard to clean behind them. Which apparently hasn't been done in years judging from the huge amounts of dust behind them. Not to mention the huge amounts of fuzzy mice cat toys that were under the cupboard which you can't get to unless you move the darn thing. Buddy has been in kitty cat toy heaven since I found all the fuzzy mice for him to play with.
I dusted everything and did some rearranging of books and doodads.
Then later in the day I was working on my shops and attempting to put merchandise away with a little help from Mimi.
It was a good day with me feeling like I actually accomplished something. And today I have some orders to go out, which makes today a good day too. And I'll even go clean that new wood floor!
