No fancy photos today. I promise tomorrow I will actually do a "real" post. I am sitting in the computer room with a large industrial blower and a very large industrial dehumidifier going on one side, and a cat who doesn't want me in here howling at me on the other side (Shadow).
The past ten days have been very hectic. We found water damage to three rooms of our house from the series of storms and extremely cold weather that kept battering us. Half of my kitchen is in the dining room. Yes, our new kitchen cabinets were removed from one wall, suffering some water damage on the back bottoms. Our bedroom wall and this office's outside wall have all been opened to the framing with only the outer rigid insulation and siding on between me and open air.
It's been days of boxing up dishes, pots and pans, silverware and food, coordination with contractors and reclaimation companies. The works.
On top of that, I managed to fall in the basement on Saturday. Gracefully, of course. I was thankful I had three layers of clothing on as well as a thick knit hat which cushioned my head from the concrete floor. For some reason, my feet went out from under me and whoosh!...there I was looking at the ceiling. I am bruised, but not broken with being more embarassed than hurt. Well, that's what I'm saying anyway...and I have a really colorful bruise to show for it all. :) Not to worry (that means you, Val!). I really am OK. :)
So, tomorrow after these beast-machines leave I shall try to post w/pictures of the latest from Oleo Acres (one of the cheaper spreads). Ya'll come back now, ya hear?
