renovations continue apace

Today the workers completed one room and I had then to reposition all the furniture and empty the second room, luckily our friend B.P. came to lend a hand, bless him. The second room is our office, library with hundreds of books, it took 2 and a half hours to empty it and I was quite tired at the end of it all. Tomorrow the workers return to complete the flooring replacement in that smaller room and I believe from what they said that it would take just a few hours. The effect of Birch wood on the new floor is quite lovely.

I am very happy with the way it is turning out. I also hope to meet with the painter tomorrow. I am expecting a wine delivery. I found out you can buy wine by consignment and do not have to go through the LCBO. A blessing because the wines I wish to buy are not available at the LCBO. This week end we may go to the movies to see a film on Venice and Sunday I have my menu planned out for a luncheon for friends who have just arrived from London, UK.

Next week life should return to normal with Museum activities and the first meetings on Museum business etc...

This is much nicer than that awful old beige broadloom which use to be on the floor.


  1. Floors are beautiful! And as much work as it is to put it all back least there will be wine.

  2. Your moving items from one room to another jogs my memory of last time we moved entirely, 1986. So loathsome and exhausting, I said if we ever decided to move again, I would just get a gallon of gasoline and a match. To lighten our load, not to douse myself. As to the dogs in the previous post, ours, yours, and especially that one over at Michael's and David's, have NO idea how lucky. Which is just as well.
