Woke up with a sore arm and knee,have no idea what I did to make them this way.
After chores I went for my walk. It is going to be another hot day I can already tell from the amount I am sweating this morning !
Hubbie took the day off work to get started on daughter's house. After I got back from my walk we headed up to church to clean. We did it all this morning so we won't have to come back this evening.
After lunch we went over to her house and started pulling the nasty carpet and padding out. Surprisingly it wasn't as bad as we thought it might be. The dog pee and other spills on the carpet hadn't penetrated the sub-flooring.We did decide that a vacuum had never touched this carpet. How anyone could live with such filth is beyond me. I can't imagine kids in this nastiness.
Anyway just as we got there the storm clouds looked ominous over toward our house so I drove home to check on our open windows. We had shut the house windows and turned the air conditioning back on with a predicted record breaking hot day but left he sunroom windows all open.
When I got here it had rained and had blown in some ,so I shut the windows and dried the floor. I checked the rain gauge and it had 6/10ths of an inch in it. Thank you Lord we needed that !!
However I know some folks who did not need rain today......
This is the booth of some friends of ours during the downpour as they try to keep things dry.
#2 son who was delivering mail in town this afternoon said it poured the rain for about 20 minutes,clearing the streets and making it a soggy start to the festival. The news said tonight that some of the display tents blew down in the windy rain storm and they had to close,hopefully they can come back tomorrow.
Pictures from earlier in the day from our newspaper sight showed that there was a nice crowd.
There is an abundance of apples ripe this year.
Now back to our afternoon of carpet removal !! Hubbie and I worked for almost 3 hours and had all the carpet and pad out of the house and most of the smell went with it thankfully. The power was already on so we did have air conditioning but we had to leave the doors and windows open , so it was a hot job.
Daughter and #2 son came to help after they got off from work and we got all the staples out of the floor and a couple other small jobs that can be marked off the list. It was a very productive day as all the floors are bare ,the interior doors are down,the smoke detectors have new batteries and the crack in the ceiling is puttied.
I am so tired tonight my legs are cramping as I sit here typing. I am sure I worked out this morning's soreness only to replace it with much more soreness for in the morning.
Daughter baked and I iced chocolate and coconut cakes tonight. Daughter left on a dog sitting job so hubbie and I loaded the van tonight so we can get an early start in the morning before the crowds descend on the parking lot and fill all the spaces. I have decided if I don't have a very good day tomorrow,next year I will take this Saturday off and stay home out of the crowd.
Very tired but thankful tonight for a strong body and a welcome drink for the garden and flowers today.
Good Night and God Bless.
