I’m going to keep this short tonight. This evening, Mark and I moved everything back into the bathroom temporarily so we can see how it’s all going to fit. Continue reading

The floor is in!
Saturday evening, Mark put the adhesive for the bathroom floor down. The bucket of adhesive said to wait until it wasn’t tacky anymore to lay the linoleum on it. By Sunday morning, it was still tacky. Continue reading
Our dining room has the largest open floor space if we move the table and chairs out, so that’s what we did on Sunday. Then we brought in the roll of linoleum we were storing out on the back deck and unrolled it… Continue reading
All God’s critters got a place in the choir…
First I’d like to say a word about my pastor, Nancy Bontempo. She will be leaving in a week for a clinic in Chicago that does a combination of whole body and traditional treatment. I believe she said she’d be there for five days while they have a team of therapists from different specialties examine her and ask her questions about her diet and exercise and mental attitude and such. She will be staying with a friend who has offered to take her back and forth to her appointments, so she doesn’t have that kind of expense to worry about. However, her insurance will only pay for any traditional therapy she gets. She is attempting to raise $50,000 for the rest of her treatment and has started a GoFundMe page: https://www.gofundme.com/f/nancy-bontempo-fighting-breast-cancer?fbclid=IwAR13FnmbqhcqhgqZvqZc98yIDWGHzhHaHIs6gTkNG1REQw2Kri8rjXCojPI. I don’t usually ask if my readers would like to help with things like this, but for her sake, I’ll make an exception. If you could even contribute a dollar or two, it would be a help. Thank you!

In various ways, Mark and I have each faced minor challenges this week. Mine was costuming for my job at the Noble House and Mark’s is the bathroom floor. Continue reading
Look, Ma! No tub!
Mark decided that tonight was the night to take the bathtub out of the bathroom. What a chore that was! Continue reading
Our 11th anniversary!
Eleven years ago, on a Friday the 13th, Mark and I eloped. We celebrated a little differently today… Continue reading
Out with the old…
Last day of freedom
Tomorrow, I pretty much start my new work schedule for the season. We had a staff meeting at the Visitor Center this afternoon to go over everything we need to know to work there. My head is spinning!
