Happy Hotober


Well Hotober is here today and it is living up to its name with temps in the mid 90s.  I truly hope this hot spell is almost over. We attended Landon's soccer game on Saturday at eleven and by the end of the game, we were all melting. Several of the players had to sit down due to dehydration. Usually by this time of the year the humidity is gone and the temps moderate. Apparently the weather is playing games with us this year.

I am so glad that my house is back in order. The floors are done and most everything is back to its original spot.


What a difference in our bedroom. Before we had carpet that had seen its better days. I am loving this flooring. Easy to care for and looks just like wood. This shade is petrified hickory by Shaw Flooring.

The crew that did the job was so great. We paid extra to have them move the furniture and they did so with great care.  Marvin and I had all we could to just moving things off the tops of tables, emptying the china cabinet and buffet etc.  The men came every day at 8 am and worked until 5 or later. They cleaned up their mess each day and I could not be more pleased with their work ethic. I highly recommend Elite Flooring in Decatur if you are in this area and need some flooring replaced. I will let you know if this flooring lives up to its reputation. Several friends have told me that they used this product in their homes and loved it.  We also noticed it was used at The Frontier Lodge in Pawhuska when we stayed there this summer.

Well time to go out and sweat some more. Come Fall Come!!

So sorry that the weather continues to be so uncomfortably hot there. We are currently up north and it's quite cool. Looking like rain today, but it's so nice to be away regardless of the weather. 😊🍂

Your new flooring looks fabulous, Arlene. Happy to hear that your home is back to normal! The humidity and heat is still hanging around here as well. Come on fall, send summer on its way!

Arlene, it looks beautiful. I am really having a bad case of envy. I so wish we had done this to our tiled floors upstairs. It just had not come out when we tiled. It is so nice looking. I think you are going to love it. The bedroom looks fabulous.

Wow! Those floors really do look like wood, Arlene! Love how they turned out and am seriously considering them for my basement. I wonder if they can be applied over concrete? I will keep a note of the maker and color as I really do like them.

Hope you get some cooler weather soon--it is almost 90 here today in PA so I can't send you any! I never remember an October 1st so warm...

Gorgeous with a capital G, girl! What lovely floors. Our carpet is so old...... I love that new wood-look tile. I’m going to show your photo to my husband.

Your flooring is just beautiful! It is still too hot here too. I think we are all suffering - except for those in Montana where they have snow already! Wow!

The flooring is just beautiful!
It's been very warm here too, but that's supposed to end today.
