We had a huge amount of rain, resulting in no gardening. Allan took some photos in the back garden:
After a great deal of news reading, I started a new book, recommended by Our Kathleen.
At first, the author annoyed me.
This doesn’t sound farcical to me:
I didn’t like this classism:
I almost put the book aside. Fortunately, I persevered because it got much better.
The author is seeking how poor people live:
I wonder if this is true.
At over 400 pages, Deep South should keep me occupied for two more excessively rainy days, which is about what is predicted.
I had wrought a miracle over the past two days, actually getting the bathroom closet completely emptied. Today, Allan removed the door and walls, which will give us a corner to store the glass bricks for the tub project. I expected the sounds of a sledgehammer and splintering faux wood; instead, he did it neatly with a screwdriver. Glass blocks will make the end wall when the tub (still to be acquired) is placed in the already plumbed spot; a tub used to be there till the previous owner had it removed in order to place a rolltop desk in the bathroom. Bathroom/slash office was an unusual combination.
This probably doesn’t seem like interesting blog fodder. However, I know of one reader who will be interested to know that the glass blocks got moved into the bathroom (but not the 95 Pound bag of mortar).
