The Weekend, so far

Yesterday was home improvement day. I brought the camper home, so workers could have access to the house without canine interruption. My summer experience with bulldogs wasn’t great, so I insisted they have air conditioning available. Turns out the camper trick worked well.

I was forced to sequester myself inside the camper with the dogs. I worked on some long suffering edits, but didn’t get them all finished. Don’t tell anyone, but it was awesome.

The workers decided to quit about three o’clock, which I thought was odd. This meant a return visit this morning. We went to the first round of the fair after they left for the day. Our fair has free concerts included in the price of admission. This was the big event last night.

I snapped this pic right before one of our famous summer thunderstorms. To her credit, Joan finished her song in the rain. The Firemarshal made them step offstage. She vowed to come back and finish, and she did. Some people left, but the finale was wonderful.

The concert ran late, but some of the food booths were still open. We went different directions and met at the picnic tables. I wound up with an awesome gyro that I may have to take a repeat visit on.

Just because I’m that way, does anyone else think the hand-washing station looks like an alien?

When the workers left, my house looked like this.

By noon today, the entire job was finished. We really like it, and here’s a pic before we put all the furniture back.

My company is all here, and came in handy for lugging couches back in. We’re headed back to the fair, and the free concert is Trace Adkins. He’s good, but I was more pumped up to see Joan Jett. Today I’m more excited to visit the food vendors with a little more time to cruise around.

  1. The floor looks terrific. Joan Jett is great as is Trace Atkins. Why these guys leave at 3:00 I’ll never know.

  2. It ABSOLUTELY looks like an alien. The concert/fair sounds like fun. I love Joan Jett. My kids have dragged me kicking and screaming into the country music world. You could do worse to hear Trace Adkins.

    The house looks great. I don’t know why they didn’t just finish yesterday, but the end result, despite the hassle, is worth it. Enjoy the weekend!

  3. Fab floor Craig! Worth it in the end and a camper van sounds like the perfect writing haven. We’re off to make some decisions about new kitchens tomorrow as our kitchen is about 30 years old and it really needs updating. My left hand has been itching for weeks, which means money out. I’m bracing myself lol.

  5. Floor looks great. Though I’m still stuck on the concert part. Nice to hear she came back and finished. You always hear about the no-shows, late comers, and jerks. Happy to see the opposite happen.

  10. The camper van sounds like it was a perfect solution, and the fair/concert sounds like it was enjoyable. Glad you’re happy with the floor, even if it meant two days of hastle having it done.

  11. The floor is stunning! I love that mixture of it looking natural from the wood grain, and yet a little different because of being gray. Yes indeed the hand wash station looks like an alien, and that fair with the concerts sounds great!

  14. Wow, Joan still looks amazing, doesn’t she? She’s a rock legend.
    I completely see the alien. Such a bizarre looking one too!

    Your floor looks great. Gray is a trending color right now and makes such a great base tone for just about anything.

    They finished my kitchen floor yesterday. Right now I am at Panera’s with my MacBook while hubby and the contractor start setting the cabinets. I’ve got to go order my countertops at 9:30 (appointment) so I thought I’d grab some coffee first and enjoy a rare Saturday morning online. Of course, I’m supposed to be writing!
