I was sitting there enjoying the fountain running in the garden when Jerry came out and joined me. This almost NEVER happens. I love, love, love it when he takes time out to just LIVE instead of working all the time. As we were sitting there, I looked up at the ceiling of the porch and noticed a bunch of spiders crawling over each other. Then I felt my hair to see if any of them had fallen on my head. Then I checked my coffee to see if any were in my coffee. Nope, just a cat hair.
That is an actual picture of part of my porch ceiling. I told Jerry the Daddy Longlegs were having a convention. He said that is NOT what they are having -- they are mating. Lovely! A spider Orgy right above our heads. GROSS!
Then there is the matter of my new video. I have never done a video in more than one take, but this last one took four takes. Not only did it take four takes, I couldn't get any of them to upload properly to You Tube. I am thinking it is probably because of Carbonite working in the background, so I will have to wait until that is done.
They tore out the wall behind the refrigerator this morning and removed the filter and box from the wall. They removed all the old insulation, and replaced it with new. Here are pictures for Brad, our insurance adjuster. Feel free to just skip over them.
This is what the wall looked like behind the frig after they removed the old filter and box. The sign on the wall is from me telling them to remove all the old insulation as far up as they can reach. Why take a chance there could be a mold spore in it.
This guy is Kirby. He told me today he has a degree in Psychology and another one in Business. I asked him WHY he is in construction with two degrees. He said he hated that kind of work.
I think he was telling the truth -- unlike Kirk the INSANE contractor I used for my MIL's house -- because Nasan was right there when he told me.
He does seem to be more intelligent than your average contractor -- at least, the ones I've had in the past!
And here is the final work of today. They filled in the hole behind the refrigerator. Now we wait until at least next Tuesday for the texture guy. Then we will have to paint and wallpaper. Then I guess the trim goes up. They finished all the trim yesterday at the shop, and it is in the garage now. After that, we need to have the mold scientist back to check the house for mold because I know it will be an issue if we ever want to sell the house. We will need a mold-free report.
The guys just left, and I am all alone. I'm going back to work on Route 66. I am on the 2nd to last row!!! This is totally amazing! Here's a few pics to update my progress. This is Kansas.
Betty's legs look like they are two different colors. They are the same. Just the lighting. Not sure I like what I did in the Betty Block. I may rip it all out. I quilted a Linda Taylor design. My longarm stitch regulator is completely broken, so the stitches are too close together. I have just used it as is, but decided to call today for repair. Good thing I did. My longarm is still under warranty. It needs two circuit boards and they are both COVERED by the warranty. YIPPEE!!!
Better get back to it. It will be time to fix supper soon.
