This is the long-ago Ruth Deming with her two children, Sarah and Dan. Hard to get lil Dan to sit still for the free K-Mart picture.
Sarah is coming to stay with me, using my home as a Writers Retreat.
The Cowbell Inn.
The Family Room, where she'll stay, has a lovely pink carpet I bought at Sears, after the previous one flooded from overflow from the laundry tub.
I began fantasizing on Monday buying a new carpet.
Stop it! I told myself. There isn't enuf time and your tax bill is coming up soon.
Be quiet, I ordered myself and called Nick from Specialty Flooring.
On Weds, today is Friday, his man Jerry came out to measure. And brought out samples. Truthfully, none of em great, but they're all in stock and will be 'cheap.'
The one I ordered is the 'best' quality, said Nick, will last longer than I will - I only have about 20 mindful years left - and the cost is less than 2 grand. Of course I was hoping for less.
Samples from Jerry. I really dug the grey.... but Nick said I needed a bright color for the basement. (He's always right.)
Ready for The Installer and for Sarah Lynn. She'll share her stories about Rio with us. When I called her last nite she was having a small dinner party. Not feeling too well.
When she left for Rio I called her and asked if she was worried about anything. No, she said. She was finishing packing, which is always the worst.
My Art Studio is on the end.
"Buy ClearWay Gloss" for a gleaming wooden floor.
