Karma and a little catnip.
More imaginary prey.
Okay...I have been finishing with the carpeting for the last few days--a little at a time because of my knees. Finally done. Now just waiting for it to get totally dry. Thought I'd show you the transformation.
When Dagan and I moved the cabinet that the fish tank had been on--OMG! I had no idea it was this bad from the Eclipse running over the top (filter in the hood) back when I first got it after I moved here. (I had to run it without the filter in it--unless I changed it about once every week or two or it would splash up over the top.) This mold had been dry for years and was like a black powder and stain. Horrible!!
After scrubbing by hand and using the SpotBot with everything we could think of short of our last resort (bleach).
Now--after using bleach water in the SporBot several times and then by hand with a scrub brush. TaDa!!
I know the bleach turned it a cream color, but I can live with this. World of difference from the above photo! I am happy with it. Want it really, really dry before we move the bookcase over, that's for sure. I'd gladly wait weeks--months! No dampness under furniture for me, I tell you! I am glad to be done with this huge project. :):)
Let's see. I left the poem and thank you card in the mailbox. Haven't been down yet to see if she took them. I sure hope she was on duty today. :)
Dagan and Leah brought Sammy and Annie home last night. The owners helped bring things over--carpeted cat towers, etc. It was really hard for the lady. She couldn't come in. I know how she feels. I'll never forget watching my African Greys leave before I moved up here to Fargo. They went to a fantastic home and I knew I couldn't take care of them properly--broke, lost job, going to be living off school loans--but I stood in my apartment and cried and cried. I loved them so much. I still miss them.
I talked with Leah on the phone last night. They moved everything downstairs for now so that the cats can feel safe and explore at their own pace. Sammy is the brave one. He cased out the whole place--all three floors. Annie was hiding in the closet at first and then came out and hid in one of the cat towers. Sammy would go back downstairs to be with her. They'll gradually adapt to the new surroundings. I have no doubt they'll be very happy with Dagan and Leah. :) :)
I won't go visit for a while because Dagan has a bad cold/cough--probably home from work today--and Leah was wondering if she was coming down with it, too. So, I'm staying away and we'll see how they are doing as far as Craft Night goes on Wednesday. Might skip this week.
Me--resting my knees today. :) Will probably finish another of Caroline's books before she comes tomorrow. Just sooo happy to look over and not see those ugly brown stains on the carpeting!! Whoohoo! Mission accomplished!! Have a great day--well, evening. Mine are flipped--hehe! :):)
