What will never be so clean again?....The garage floor!!! Yesterday MOTH spent the whole day lifting everything out of the garage. Remember we've lived here for 35 years. Then he blew out all the dust with the leaf blower. Today the workman came, commercially cleaned, sealed and painted the whole floor. Look at that shine!! It took from 9:30 a.m. to about 2:30p.m. We can't walk on it yet or move anything back in preferably for two days. The biggest problem? The cat's kitti-litter. We spread a drop cloth in the hall and moved the kitti-litter to it. The cat usually gets to his kitti-litter through a cat door in the hall/garage door. I was worried to death he might be offended, (the cat that is), and have an accident but so far he has accepted it all as perfectly normal. This from a cat who used to run upstairs and hide under the bed if the doorbell rang when we first got him.
I took these photos from the hallway door looking into the garage. The door you can see below opens into the back yard, north. This wasn't quite as sudden as it may seem. We've been talking about doing it for quite some time. So we had them come out and give us an estimate and decided to get it done two days later because the weather was really dry, (Santa Ana, but the winds were further north) and there was certainly no rain forecast. Remember everything inside the garage was/is now outside in the back yard, including the washer and dryer.
So here am I with a silly look on my face -- I was telling Moth how to use the camera, it's different from his -- and Bailey sitting on my lap in his usual position, face front, while the work was in progress. He looks a bit worried, but that's because he doesn't like the camera.
KUDOS to MOTH for working so hard to move everything! Now if we can only get it all back in, we'll be set for the men who are coming to put more insulation in the attic in about a week.
Incidentally, you might recognize the design on my T shirt as the one on which I based my medallion drawing a couple of posts ago.
