Tuesday Morning

My house is still pretty much a construction zone.  I love these floors and even without my stairs being done, and without a railing, I think my house looks beautiful!  I had several guests last night, and they all loved it too!  

We are having a heat wave in Colorado.   It was in the 70ºs yesterday.  It will be again today.  It is nice to be able to be outside without tons of clothing, and it is nice for folks to be able to get back and forth across the state without dealing with treacherous snow-covered mountain passes.

I am grateful for having almost gotten through another winter.  There are only a couple of weeks left of this official season.  I really struggle through late winter every year.  I guess it is called Seasonal Affective Disorder.  

One of my favorite doctors at work came to tell me about an inservice he had attended about the importance of vitamin D.  It seems that since everyone has covered up in an effort to avoid skin cancer, people are now having a shortage of this important vitamin - that is mainly available through beautiful sunshine.  Sunscreen prevents the absorption of vitamin D.   I may have worn sun screen once or twice in my life, but I love the sunshine and I don't want anything getting between me and it.  

I will strive to get out in the sunshine today even though I have to be at work early and will probably have to stay late.  

I think it would be a good day to stay sober, care to join me?

I love the floors darlin'!!!
I'm on year 4 trying to find the perfect area rugs, I hope your search is better.

Great floors. I know that you'll enjoy them so much better than carpeting.

You are looking for area rugs? The market is flooded with 'em!

Wall-to-wall carpet is only for bedrooms.

The wood is beautiful - my favorite flooring is wood!

Watch out for nails - I had construction going on in my home and I stepped on a nail!

I love the look of those floors!
I live north of the 55th parallel and take vitamin D 6 months of the year. It helps my mood.

See comment to "Mission." You are sometimes my Vitamin D. J.

Home renovations = lots of prayers!

I was ready to ask when we could expect pictures of the wood floors (do ya think bloggers other than "recovery" people would be waiting, anticipating, a "Home Depot" ad on a blog? -grin!)

Looks GREAT! And yep, I do care to join you--and stay sober one more day

The floors are absolutely beautiful! I know you are going to love them. I have been taking a calcium supplement w/vitamin D for years now so I guess I'm good on that.

... Heat wave. 70 degrees. Hehehehehe. (That's not to say I wouldn't die if we hit anything below 10. Lol!)
