Dust Bowl

After work today, David and I worked on the floor at the house. I guess we worked until about 7:30. I walked out to the car to grab the camera and as I walked out I saw Sam Z and his wife, Claire. Sam Z is the youngest of the 5 children that lived and grew up in the house that we just bought. He and his wife own the house next door! He is very nice and I got to meet his wife and 3 children.

They all came in and walked through their grandparent’s house, I would love to walk through my grandmother’s house. I know “Granny’s house” have so much meaning.

Tonight as I wanted to finish getting all of the tile up in the dining room and David hoped to get to the first layer of vinyl. I did get all of the tile up, but getting all those layers up and gone is very labor intensive! He got almost all of it up.

After that I just went from spot to spot trying to work on something but not too sure what to do, so I just made a mess! Ha!

I sprayed vinegar and water on the back of the top vinyl flooring, that helped some, but not near enough – there is a layer of dust on everything!!!

Today at work, Cynthia told me about this product that works good on rust! So I decided to get some and try it on the bathtub upstairs. Oh my goodness, it really works! I only sprayed it on the surface, I didn’t scrub or do anything else and it worked FAST! Notice the name of the product…”the Works”!

Also, Sam gave us a tip on how to get the bottom vinyl flooring up, he said to use a heat gun! Oh my word, I’m going to try it!

David seems to think the subfloor in the kitchen and back porch should come up easier. I sure hope so, because this is such a slow process.

I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,

I enjoy piecing quilts and getting to know people, as well as sharing the information I have on sewing. I love the sense of accomplishment once I'm finished.
