The Floor Project

The following is what you do with a linoleum floor that's been glued down
over 20 years and you don't want to put tile on top of it!! The girls were
determined to get that floor up and just keep the wood floor underneath.
Here we go.
"This isn't too bad"
Momma's thinking...."There must be an easier way!
Ariana has had enough. She has an idea.
"Let's heat the floor and melt the glue"
"It works great"
(We only burnt out two blowdryers):)
Christiana has a better idea.
"If the blow dryer works to heat it up, why not FIRE"

This actually worked great, but the smell was awful,
so back to the blowdryers we went.

Melted glue, after the fire.

Slow Going.

Look at the determined face.

Getting down to the last part.

Time to move everything out.

All the linoleum is GONE!!
Time to sand to the perfect finish.
Adding a little something special.

Thanks for watching.

The Fall Garden

The Fall Garden has been planted and once again the Lord has
blessed us abundantly. Here's a quick update on how it's progressing.
Our Garden Foreman

He keeps us company while we work in the garden.
He's such a gentleman:)

What a beautiful sight.
