Days 2 and 3

Now the changes are coming rapidly.

No more carpet in the living room. What exactly did they do to the floor? Nevermind, I really don’t think I want to know.
Spouse’s office floor has been sealed.
And mine, too!
Evidence of the future outlet in the kitchen island that will bring it up to code and be so handy for using cooking appliances in the kitchen
Say goodbye to the wall sconces in my office!
Mom’s shower, tub, and fan are gone . . .
But not forgotten.
I can imagine that this is endearing us to the neighbors. I have to ask, wasn’t there some place safe in the house or garage? Really?

This hole beneath the master bath tub keeps getting bigger for reasons that aren’t entirely clear to me. By the way, the tub, despite its resemblance to a sarcophagus, is staying.

Goodbye, rec room carpet.

I’ve decided to spare everyone (including myself) the pictures that Spouse took while using a black light to identify the pet stains. Suffice it to say, we are going to seal everything, and we aren’t going to salvage any carpet. Sigh.

Last, but not least in my mind, which is yearning for spring and gardening, the future orchard grew to nine trees with the addition of an apricot, a lapin cherry, a nectarine and a plum.


It is such a relief to see things moving forward, and I’m starting to see glimmers of the house I see in my mind’s eye. Very exciting.
