Critters, weather, and floors
August 2nd: We have seen a chipmunk living in the rocks by our front steps, and we have seen a groundhog just across the road, on occasion (he lives on the hill facing the lake). But this was quite a bold groundhog, especially since the dogs always sniff around these rocks.
August 6th: Tawny was anxious to go out to play, and so she helpfully brought a pair of Freda's socks to her so she could get ready to go...
August 6th: As you may know, the floor manufacturer (TORLYS) is very graciously paying to replace our flooring because it was improperly installed by their authorized dealer. I will not hesitate to say that that flooring store is not an authorized TORLYS dealer any more. Torlys is supplying new flooring and is paying their premier Ottawa deals to remove the old flooring and install the new stuff. They will not remove and reinstall the shoe moulding, so we have to do that. I am limited to how much I can do in a day because of my excruciating headaches, so I have been doing a little bit at a time. Here you can see a section of the flooring and baseboard where I have removed the shoe moulding.
August 7th: Another incredible rainstorm!
