A Day Later, and a Dollar Shorter

   It's Wednesday, and I've been blogging for a whole week now!  Isn't it amazing what can happen in such a short space of time?
   Our excellent work crew got back at it bright and early this morning, and I'm happy to say that there is a functional sink in the upstairs bathroom.  No more rain downstairs!  So far the counter is just a piece of exterior plywood, but there's always tomorrow.  As Eddie tells his loan customers at the bank when they're trying to figure out how much money to borrow for some kind of building project, "Figure high and double it."  His advice has certainly held true for us, too.  We had planned to just buy laminate flooring and underlay, and if you've been reading about our adventures for the past few days, you know it ended up being much more extensive than that. 
   Still, God provides and is so good.  A few months ago our son Michael called and asked Eddie if he'd like seven sheets of exterior plywood that he had left over from a project.  Eddie said yes, and Michael brought them to us on his trailer and stacked them neatly against the inside wall of the carport.  They were still there Monday when Marcus needed them for the sub floor.  Guess how many sheets it took for the first layer?  Yup.  Seven.  To quote another cliche, "Ain't God good?"  And though it was raining Monday and Tuesday, it was warm enough in the house, even with the door wide open, while they went in and out working on the floor.
   Today, it was freezing, and fortunately the door didn't have to stand open too long while they put the new weather-tight threshold down.  It would have been terrible if they had begun the work after this cold snap blew in! 
   As for the ferrets, they're snug as a bug in a rug in their favorite drawer of my craft cabinet.  I gave up trying to keep craft supplies in there and just gave them an old hoodie to snuggle in.  They also like the drawer closed while they're napping.  Privacy, don't you know?

   Nighty night, and don't let the bedbugs bite!  Stay warm, too!  It may sleet and ice tonight.
Love'n stuff,
Sandy :)
