Summer is here!

And things just keep getting better...
So here is what we are dealing with now in Vegas. Yesterday was hot today will be hotter. At least the heat and low humidity is helping drying the floor out. 
Got up just before 5 o'clock the morning. it was already 86 out.
8 o'clock now and the workers are back. Thank goodness the first thing they did was shut off the fans and dehumidifier.  Silence is great.  Now they are ripping up more flooring. 
I finally finished that puzzle - now I am out of any more new ones.  will have to re do some of the older ones. 
A closer look at a very small area. 
I did find a place for my Japanese Lady. I have a collection of Chinese and Japanese pictures and items in one corner of the bedroom. Just rearranged a few things and there she is. 
Bill continues too work on his wood spirits. Eventually we'll have to get a web site up or go on e-bay or Esty to get rid of everything. but not while we are still traveling. 
At least he is keeping busy and happy. 
Of course right now he is "supervising" the workers. They all speak Spanish, so I really don't know what is going on.  But they had him empty a cupboard in the hall and the big one under the sink in the laundry room. Lovely.  Will take pictures as they go along. Bill also just told me it might be up to three weeks before everything is finished. 
I've started a new project too - but won't be able to work on it for a while as the whole sewing room is full of stuff from other rooms. Actually I started it before we moved to Indiana about 11/12 years ago. It is a set of three ladies.  No I don't know what I'll do with them if I ever finish them. This one now has the paper patterns on it.

We talked to the property manager where we live and they are going to let us keep the RV in front our home for three days. By then the floors and everything should be dry and the stove hooked back up and no fans running all night. We'll see how much reno we can stand - This way we don't have to load the RV with anything but ourselves. Can not stand another night of the fans. Also now the stove is not hooked up either. But refrig is in living room and running. Between that and microwave we should be fine. 
This is turning into a major repair. Two cabinets have been removed, there is NO FLOOR where the refrigerator used to be. And all the fans have blown our power in a couple of rooms. 
So...there we are.
