Wow...what a week it's been...

I lost internet connection at my home on Wednesday night, then Thursday was pack out and move day. That went pretty well given that two of the four guys that were going to help, didn't show until much later than planned. The work started at the house on Friday and on Saturday morning, mum and I went to do some weeding over there.
This is what greeted us on the front porch...

Here's another view:

All of that came out of the bathroom:

They also had to rip out the sub floors because they were rotted and apparently there were three sub floors. I wasn't able to get pictures of that, I'd forgotten to take my camera when i went to water the garden on Sunday morning.

Of course, when I tried to water the garden, I discovered that there is no water on at the house, so I can't water the plants. We are currently in a rain free weather pattern with lots of sun and heat... i'm hoping my plants will survive.

I just got back from going with my step-mum and dad to take their cat to the vet. She was 19 and had been in renal failure for 2 years. It was very hard to watch her leave this world and even harder watching my step-mum say goodbye.

I am way behind on blog reading but will try to get caught up soon. I saw in another comment that Dracenea gave me an award. I've never gotten a blog award before and can't wait to get to her blog and check it out. Thanks so much Dracenea!

I'll check in again when I can.
