My dear blog friend, Christine, sent me this lovely bouquet of flowers for suggesting our art for books swap. I had mailed my four books to her in exchange for two of her paintings. Thank you, Christine, I was so surprised to receive this gift from you. I can’t wait to see your paintings next week.
Meanwhile, David consulted with an orthopedic surgeon about his sore right knee. The doctor told him that he can postpone knee replacement surgery for two years, because the problem does not warrant such an extreme measure at this time. He injected David’s knee with cortisone, and my husband will have a series of six lubricant injections on both knees starting in mid-April. I just hope he is well enough to travel to the East coast in August. The money we have already spent on air fare and hotels is non-refundable!!!
Sooner or later, we will have to remove the carpet in our entertainment areas, because it is becoming unsightly. David wants carpeting again, but I want vinyl tile as a permanent solution. It is such a hassle to keep moving the furniture to change the carpet every few years. As we get older, this will become an ordeal. Some people I know recommended wood. However, installing vinyl tile would not generate the sawdust that installing a wooden floor would. I just don’t want sawdust all over the place. Besides, vinyl tile can simulate wood very well. There are all kinds of designs to choose from. It’s so exciting to consider the possibilities!
