We have decided this would be the best time to start ripping out lathe and plaster and re-drywall and, what the heck, refinishing the hardwood floor! I say "we" very loosly. That is not to say that i am not in favour of such a venture..a contraire, i just mean Mike and a guy named Piet have done most of the work...along with some kind-hearted, sypathetic friends and I have left town or at least the house, while they do!
The lathe and plaster came out a few days before our holidays in the pantry and bedroom. The drywall went up via a wonderful timely and efficient drywaller named Piet...new windows to follow. we also put in a door to the bedroom that will go to a small deck right between the pantry and bedroom...to catch the evening sunset. Mike apinted the pantry "a touch of curry" and the bedroom two shades of "avacado"..looks soo good!
He is now starting to work on stripping the lino glue that is on the hardwood floor in both these rooms. A dusty job.
Needless to say, I am NOT spending my days cleaning, and will await such chores when the fine sand has settled nicely over all our wordly possesions. I will then phone a few friends who arent afraid to clean and then we will get the job done right! I suspect I will be only a couple of weeks or days from my due date, and helping hands will not be too hard to locate!
So, Finn and I hang out...away from the boxes and clutter, if possible, and make up new games and visit friends, and enjoy these last summer days with relish. I feel very tired very often, but thems the breaks. I suppose! This is a busy little baby on the inside, not to mention the little crazy oat on the outside!
The other pics are of the kittens, now free to roam in the laundrey room and yard...they will be given to their prospective, respective homes in 3-4 weeks.
