Tricky Cuts

My floors continue to progress. Doing the closet area in the master bedroom required lots of weird cuts. I am pleased with how it came out.

The floor can be cut with a jigsaw, which I had. For the trim, I had to get a miter box. It does make nice 45-degree angles though.

The floors will be done soon. It’s tiring work, but it’s so fun to see the difference!

Laying Laminate

Happy Birthday to brother Brent and niece Alicia! Yay!

The guest bedroom is floored! I had the underlayment and laminate. It was just a matter of cutting pieces to fit. It wasn’t as bad as it might have been, because the room is just a rectangle. The master bedroom will be much more challenging.

Sanding My Feet

I’ve gone walking on the beach the last couple of mornings. It’s beautiful out there before the sun heats things up.

I usually wear sneakers, because I don’t like getting sand and water all over my feet. Dirty. Ugh. Yesterday, I decided to try wearing slippers (flip-flops), and taking them off when I got to the beach.

Big mistake. My between-my-toes skin got sore from the slipper thong, and my bottom-of-my-foot skin got sore from the sand. I have really soft feet. I never go barefoot – always socks and shoes. I’ll definitely be going back to shoes on the beach.

Nameless Treasure

I have often driven past a bush I don’t recognize, but I like. It has pale greyish leaves, and recently exploded with purple flowers. I seriously considered knocking on the person’s door to ask if I could have a cutting.

But then I found out my trainer had one in her back yard. And it’s not a bush – it’s a tree. She gave me some cuttings. I’m so excited to see if they root!

There are four cuttings in the pot

Going into my trainer’s back yard meant going through her house. I’ve never been in there. She talks about her dogs all the time, but I never met them. Until yesterday. They were so fun! Francisco is a big dog… a pit bull? He was really playful. Fernando is a chihuahua. He was mostly quiet and loved being scratched.

Piano and TV

I played piano in church yesterday. It had been a LONG time. I made a lot of mistakes.

Figuring I must have done my one productive thing for the day, I spent most of the rest of the day binge-watching a new(ish) Star Trek show.

I am interested enough to keep watching it, but there are a lot of scenes where people are sitting together and talking softly. That makes me sleepy.
