I’m so comfortable to be scripting this from my mattress! Nicely, truly it is simply my mattress on the plywood that’s the ground in my bed room proper now, however it feels so luxurious to be in my bed room as a substitute of on the sofa in the lounge. Except the realm the place the brand new bathe goes to go, I’ve all the subfloor executed.
|Pure luxurious proper right here|
The cats have been going loopy as a result of I have not been in a position to allow them to within the bed room (the very first thing they might do is soar down into the crawl area). As I have been working in on the bed room, they sit proper exterior the door. Yesterday, I used to be screwing down the plywood proper in entrance of the door once I noticed a black paw push a small piece of wooden below the door–it was so humorous!
I really feel like all of my weblog posts have been rushed currently, and I assume it is as a result of they have–this entire bed room/lavatory undertaking has been continuous. (I really want to think about a special identify for it; calling it the bed room/lavatory undertaking is an excessive amount of.)
I used to be enthusiastic about it whereas attempting to sleep (on the sofa once more final evening) and I spotted how humorous it’s in a means. I wished to shock Jerry whereas he was out of city for the weekend by eradicating the carpet in our bed room and putting in the posh vinyl planks that have been left over from the remainder of the home. It feels like loads, however that might have been a fairly easy undertaking.
If I did not run into any issues.
I hadn’t considered what I’d discover once I ripped up the carpet–and water harm on the ground between the bed room and toilet was in all probability the worst case state of affairs. The bathe was in opposition to the toilet wall that
is was on the opposite facet of my bed room, and the water harm went from lavatory to bed room. I knew, as quickly as I noticed it, that I used to be going to have an enormous mess on my arms.
I actually wished to simply put the carpet again and neglect that I noticed something! Haha. Nevertheless it wasn’t one thing we might ignore, particularly with mould rising there. The best solution to actually repair every little thing was to take away the subfloor, the bathe, and a few partitions. *eye roll*
Since we needed to take away the bathe anyway, and we have been needing a brand new one for some time, we’re going to rearrange the toilet a bit. As a substitute of placing the brand new bathtub/bathe the place the outdated one was, we’ll put it within the reverse nook. Then, we’ll put up a few partitions the place the outdated bathe was and switch it right into a linen closet. I feel.
Our lavatory is basically huge and we do not want that a lot wasted area. By transferring the bathe, we achieve an area that may make a reasonably large linen closet. So it’s going to be good when it is executed! It is simply plenty of work getting there.
This morning, I drove as much as West Bloomfield to go to my pal Jack, who I went to highschool with. I used to be already sore from engaged on the “bed room/lavatory undertaking”, after which Jack and I went on a five-mile stroll/nature hike. West Bloomfield is fairly hilly, and I might definitely really feel my quads working onerous. So, I am certain I will be sore tomorrow, too, however a minimum of it is a good sore 😉
Anyway, West Bloomfield is an hour away, so I had plenty of time within the automobile and I selected to hearken to a brand new podcast. It is referred to as ‘The Plant Powered Individuals’ and the episodes I listened to have been SO good. Bear in mind how one in every of my huge targets for this 12 months was to give attention to consuming extra fiber? Nicely, the primary episode I selected was about fiber and the digestive system–particularly concerning the intestine microbiome.
I would examine it however did not absolutely “get it” till listening to this episode with Dr. Will Bulsiewicz, a gastroenterologist who’s a complete nerd (in a great way!) about fiber and poop and the way the microbiome is tremendous vital to our well being. It ended up being a two-part interview, so there are two one-hour episodes. I extremely suggest that everybody hearken to them! (Episodes 75 and 76–you could find them right here.)
I additionally listened to an episode about sprouts (episode 78)–which sounds actually boring, however it was a subject I knew nothing about and thought it could be fascinating. And it positively was–I had no concept that sprouts (from seeds, lentils, beans, and so forth) have been so good for us. Now I need to strive sprouting some issues! The visitor that was interviewed, Doug Evans, wrote a guide referred to as ‘The Sprout Guide’, and he explains methods to do it (no backyard required).
I’ll search for some extra fascinating episodes to hearken to. I used to be losing interest with true crime, so I added a few new podcasts to my telephone. It was refreshing to hearken to one thing new and it bought me form of enthusiastic about fiber and sprouts–hahaha!
