The creepy old carpet has been cut, rolled, and hauled to the dumpster. The carpet pad had mostly disintegrated or been inhaled, alas. All the living room furniture is shoved and stacked in the dining area. Just getting to the coffee maker means squeezing through a maze.
Playing "Wallander" DVDs as I work. A son introduced me to Henning Mankell's detective a few years back. Now stubbly Kenneth Branagh propels my heavy duty scrub brush. Emily Barker and The Red Clay Halo's theme song percolates up through the concrete.
Home Depot employees are my new best friends. Plan to finish removing plaster and adhesives from the concrete tomorrow. Saturday evening Inspector Wallander and I will be repairing cracks and divots in the slab. So it won't be a mystery if the blog is set aside.
