~PIPES TO BE MOVED~
We had a pretty exciting, but stressful, weekend around my La Chaumière de Briarwood! Between the birthday celebration of our son, the two wrecked vehicles and the ripping up of our concrete my Mr. AGPMan are just about spent. Our new wood floors are being installed on February twentieth so there is much to be done between now and then. Three sets of pipes must be moved and new concrete poured so it's hours and hours of work for my hubby...
To keep the concrete dust down to a minimum my guy and one of his friends built a movable contraption that vents the dust outside. Is this ingenious or what? Even though all our furniture was covered the dust flying in the air during the tile removal was unbelievable! I'm still wiping things down and it's been over a month now.
~BASHED IN TRUCK~
Here's a daytime picture of our aging truck that was hit Friday nite. Still no word on the driver that was taken to the hospital. On Wednesday I'll be going down to the police department to pick up the report that was taken. Then we'll contact his insurance company and go from there. The truck once belonged to my Mr. AGPMan's father...he owned it for years and it was in perfect condition. My guy's momma gave it to him last summer when his dad went into nursing home care so he's especially sad it's so heavily damaged. Still thankful no one was hurt in the back to back car wrecks tho...
~SWEET TAG SALE FINDS~
While all the banging and jackhammering was going on I escaped to some estate and tag sales. I found an enormous lot of vintage laces and a vintage needlepoint piece that matched one I bought about a year ago. Couldn't believe it!
Today my Mr. AGPMan is off work and our SIL is coming over to help him remove the carpeting from downstairs. Little by little things are coming together and before long our new floors will be in!
I'm in my studio working today and I'm excited about showing you some of the new things for my A Gathering Place website. It's still up I'm afraid...with all that's been going on around here my guy hasn't had a chance to put it on hiatus!
More soon! Hope your Monday Monday is fabulous!
Love to you...
