There were an even dozen comments on the post from yesterday, despite what helloscan says. Thanks to all who chipped in birthday wishes for Thing 2; I'll be sure to show them to him tonight when he arrives this evening at La Casa Teeny (what's "tiny" in Spanish, anyhow? Poquito? Pequeñito?).
Ah, La Casa Pequeñito, livin' La Vida Loca.
Speaking of which (the 'crazy life,' that is), the LR floor is finished. It's gorgeous! All that crazy-hard work (THERE'S your segue!) sanding and scraping and sanding and sanding and ...well, you get the picture, followed by a coat of stain and 4 coats of polyurethane (clear satin finish, thanks for asking) have resulted in a floor that is richly hued and warmly glowing.
I'm almost afraid to step on it.
As luck would have it, the new floor color still matches the new rug that was bought to match the old (chocolate brown) floor paint color.
Yes, PAINT. Imagine the horror.
Anywho, there are some blocks of color in the rug that match the new AWESOME floor color to a tee (tea? 'T'? and why 't' anyhow?), which makes me happy in a Martha-ish way. It's the little things in life that need celebrating, people. This new floor, the product of much work, a cuple too-tree hunnert dollars of cash outlay, is a little thing, but important to me and a source of great happiness.
And the first one who scratches it is on my shit list.
A puppy update: y'all know I was concerned about him being so shy. Well, it's my happy duty to report that Nibbler is coming out of his shell even further! He went to the chili dinner date the other night and he played and played with their puppy until their players were sore, and then! He took a walk! On a LEASH! He didn't need to be dragged at all, not even one tiny step! I suspect he's more a fan of the harness-type walkies arrangement than the collar and lead type, and isn't it lucky for us that we have a harness at home just waiting to be broken out for Nibby's first 'at home' walk?
He's also taking treats from our hands now, and sniffing a LOT of cat butt.
Oh, it's nothing but good times and youthful hijinks around these parts. Again, a small but happy thing. I'm in the mood to be happy, aren't you?
Y'all have a fine day. I'm off to Thurs it like a wild woman!
