My Orchid!

Standard

I’ve had this orchid plant at work for years.  Out of the blue last year it grew a stem, budded & flowered about 8 blooms and they lasted for a few months!  At Christmas I was taking it into the little kitchen here at work to water it but I dropped it and broke the little clay pot it was in.  I was so bummed because it had just grown a new stem with tiny buds (again!!) and I was afraid I killed it.  I repotted it and took it home.  It is blooming again!!!!  Seriously, I’ve had it for years – maybe 5 and now it’s bloomed twice in one year!! Totally stoked! And yes, feel free to notice my cute little pig picture in the background, lol.

 

Cutting Under Door Jams

Standard

I borrowed this oscillating tool from a friend at work and it was a LIFE-SAVER!

I just put a piece of scrap flooring up against the door jam, set the blade on top and started it up. I just kept pressure on it and moved it left to right until I cut through the door trim.

Knocked out the cut piece with a hammer and screwdriver . . .

and slipped the flooring underneath!  It really was much easier than I was anticipating and it looks marvelous!!!  I need to ask for one of these tools for Christmas!!!  Jason . . . . Amie . . .  😉

 

Flooring is Done!

During . . . found linoleum under the carpet

Voila!! Done & I love my new rug from Overstock.com – the exact colors I wanted – too bad you’ll never see the middle again, LOL

Old closet – floor is done!  Now I need to get on the baseboards!!  If I put my furniture back – I’ll never get them done, so until then I’m sleeping in the guest room!
