Fun Times :P


No, I'm not on vacation...
but I did get to wade in inches of water a couple weeks ago.
Straight off my bed as my feet hit the floor !!!

Consider mild temperatures last November, quick snow melt and excessive rain, along with living in a "renovated" basement apartment of a half century old building, all of which adds up to a recipe for disaster. A perfect storm of epic proportions, uh... not so much... more like, at a minor scale, thank God... but none the less, left me running around in my underwear, frantically trying to gain control of the situation.

I give justified praise to my spin mop, for obvious reasons, and the not so subtle hills and valleys of the original floor, hiding under the new "pretend slate" vinyl. Despite the fact that everything is on one level, the kitchen and a few room corners remained dry, will the rest of the apartment was drenched in melted snirt, a couple inches deep in most of the bedrooms, living room, and bathroom. I had started packing for the move, and my daughter's room still had boxes on the floor, that hadn't made it out to her new life yet. Cardboard does love water... damn it! But I could breathe a sigh of relief as I noticed that the high spots on the floor saved a few items from soaking in the lovely moat, that appeared in my home overnight. 

I was able to save most it, and didn't forget to count my blessings... like the fact that I have a non-leaking roof over my head, and a septic system that is not backing up every couple years. Been there, done that.... Moving on.

Speaking of snirt... here's a pic I took a few weeks ago at the mall parking lot.


Canadian Snirt Mountain ~ Ain't it lovely !!

I'm happy to say, the apartment is still dry, and most of the snirt is gone bye now.  I actually see a few strands of green, way way over there, across the apartment parking lot. About time!

I know, I know... A lot of you have leaves in your trees :/
So? How many times have you mowed so far? :P ;-)

MissK ~ Chiming In


I've been "dealing" with a few things lately... aren't we all :/
I will find Light at the end of this tunnel,
even if I have to Spark the Blaze myself !!


With that said, Life goes on...


& My Personal Therapist ;-)

I went over to my daughter's country home the other day
and went to town on their wood pile.
Still one of the best ways I know to clear my head.
