On My Mind...

I have decided to start participating in On My Mind, a photo feature started by Rhonda at Down to Earth.  Every Friday I hope to share with you something in my life on my mind and invite you to do the same.

On my mind this week is flooring.  We started the monumental (at least to us) task of pulling up (mold, dust, and allergen filled) carpet.  We just have a small corner of our room done, as we have to wait for nice enough weather to open the windows and the time to work to fall into alignment.  The thought right now is that we will repair and paint the cement and lay rugs where needed.  Even with the hope of having the toxicity of the carpet out of the house, the task is daunting.

What is on your mind this week?

We are also tearing the nasty carpets up and out of our house. You're right in that it is quite a nasty job. We are lucky enough to have hard wood floors UNDER the carpet - it's beyond me why anyone would want carpet when such beauty is all ready there. I just hate carpet. YICK! Good luck with you tear up and out.

Hi, Good luck with this huge task. I have read some terrible stories about mold spores spreading lately and hope your experience is a good one with desired outcome.

That is going to be great. I just repainted our Kitchen and Bathroom. It is a lot of work is it not?
Good luck with the reno. I do not like carpet you never know what is under it. B

It's amazing what is hiding in carpet

Hi, that is a big job. I wish you lots of luck !!
We have vinyl flooring upstairs and tiles and laminated floor downstairs, so no carpets at all.
Have a wonderful weekend.
