However, I couldn't stand thej dirty, faded shag carpet for one more minute, so I picked out a low-pile wool berber on Tuesday. Here is the before and after, as they are taking up one and laying the other.
They measured on Thursday and are installing it today. It is a JOB because all the STUFF had to be removed from the cabinets and bookkcase and closet floors before they could even do anything. Have been llugging and throwing since Tuesday and am now squished into a corner, out on the porch, along with the tip of the iceberg from the guest room. Much of this will go to Good Will or the Salvation Army.
To my left, leaning against the sliding doors, my so-called design wall. I hope to move it back into the guest room tonight when the carpet is down and the furniture is back. It doubles as my sewing room when I am here.
On the bright side, the weather and the view are beautiful. Here is what I am looking at if I turn my head slightly to the right.
I've already had a teaching request for March 2015 on the west coast of Florida. If anybody else wants me while I'm there, let me know. For the moment, I am happy to put my feet up and enjoy myself for the next few days.
