A couple of weeks ago I noticed mold growing in the wall where a water pipe had been repaired and the wall left open to dry out. I then noticed it growing on my place mat box in one of the drawers under the counter top next to that wall. Maggi promptly put a fan there but I wanted the mold treated as it was smelling quite bad.
So the mold folks came in a week before Mum was due to arrive and ripped out the wall, counter top and units. What a shock to come home and see that!
Early Saturday morning I went to Warrenton where I was helping WomenBuild, a group of Habitat for Humanity build a house. I got there nice and early to find that it had been cancelled due to flooding from the storm a couple of days ago. But the blessing was going ahead so I stayed for that and met a couple of other potential builders.
I got back home and had no sooner sat down with a cup of tea when Maggi appeared. We both confronted each other with folded arms but before long our grievances were aired, hugs were administered and the eviction notice revoked, and we both went outside to hunt for 4 leaf clovers which apparently are supposed to be in abundance outside the house.
Sunday morning I couldn't sleep, still worrying about the mold and my upside down kitchen, so I walked outside and took a few photos of a wet but sunny early morning.
This will likely be the last post for a month, the time that Mum will be here. Each post takes me 2-3 evenings usually to prepare, (not this one, this was rushed!), and I'm not going to want to do that with Mum here. The daily blog, link below, will still continue but Lucent Moments will grind to a temporary halt as from now.
But there will be plenty of post about in a months time!
