There is a peace and a quiet here that I need. It’s soul centering. The rest of the world stops and I feel like I can actually think up here.
Yes, there is a ton of work to be done this weekend ---- the first thing on the agenda last night was to change out the bad gasket between the tank and toilet in the upstairs bathroom. While Mickey was here…she called me down to her bathroom and said, “Houston, we have a problem!”
Looking up, we saw droplets of water beaded on the ceiling. Where were they falling? DIRECTLY onto the toilet paper roll hanging off the side of the cabinet. That roll had swelled to enormous capacity!
When the roll couldn't hold it anymore, where was THAT dripping? Directly into the trash can below it.
Miracle of miracles ---no water had reached the pine plank floor. It was at this point that we found that the gasket between the tank and bowl on the upstairs commode needed replacing. Water damage can be such a bad thing….we were lucky! No drywall was harmed because the ceilings and floors are pine plank and varnished. It was a minimal amount of water, and now that is fixed.
It seems that everyone and their dog in North Carolina is headed one of two directions for the Labor Day weekend – Either East to the coast…..or West…to the Mountains! This was our dead stand still creeping crawling view as we made our way to Wilkesboro heading toward Boone:
Red tail lights for miles!
But we got here!
I will be deep in Mystery sewing mode…..I am so excited about our November Mystery ----and will be going full force on it this weekend, so if you don’t see much of what I’m working on, that’s why! Just wait! You will NOT want to miss this mystery! Expect yardage requirements and colors by Mid-October. First clue goes live November 29th!
Have a safe,fun and memorable Labor Day weekend however you spend it ---
Love from Buck Mountain,
