Slab Floors, Rain and the Flu

Looks like I’m touching on the kitchen sink of subjects today.

We had our tile floor ripped out one week before Memorial Day weekend. We walked on slab until my husband could put down the wood floors over the three-day holiday. You can see the imprint that the tiles left behind.

In the mean time, I got this horrible flu bug. It started in the stomach and turned into the head cold from hell. I was still in sniffing and rasping mode on Friday for our wedding anniversary. But boy, did our wood floors ever turn out nice. I knew I stuck around for 27 years with this man for something. 😉

If you recall, I’ve written a few blogs on how dry it’s been here where I live, and how much I miss the rain. I took some photos of the little lakes in our subdivisions to show how dried up they were getting.

Then, finally, on Friday, we got some relief in the morning until about noon. Even though  my body was still battling the monster-flu  invader, the rain soothed my soul. I breathed deep, set my head back and closed my eyes to the sound of the tapping on the roof. I fell asleep. Now it’s supposed to be dry for another week or so. I’ll take what I can get.

I’m still struggling with getting my health back in shape. Any good thoughts sent my way would be appreciated.

Happy, healthy June to everyone.

    1. Thanks, Terri. I wish I could say I was better, but it just won’t go away. Just got some meds to take from the doc today, so I’m hoping this will do the trick. I do love my new floors. Thanks for checking them out.


  1. Lori – Happy (belated) Anniversary! Looks like you two are on beautiful, solid footing! 😉
    I’m so very sorry about the flu. It can knock you for a wicked loop. I’m glad to hear you’re on the mend. Praying for you!


    1. Thanks, Debbie. I appreciate the prayer. Still dragging from this thing, but better than yesterday, and hopefully better tomorrow than today. Blessings to you.


  2. It may appear as a flu-bug; it’s really your body saying: hey! pay attention to me! So, take care of yourself…floors look great!


  3. Hi,
    The floors look fantastic, he did do a wonderful job, you just can’t beat the look of nicely polished timber just beautiful.
    I’m sorry to hear about your flu, I hope you start to feel better soon.


  4. We were bombarded by rain on and off for 2 days. You know, the storm clouds blow in, gets humid as hell, pours like the dickens for ten minutes and then it all blows away. Repeat at least once an hour. 🙂 Back to dry now (the usual). Great pic you guys really are low!

    Nice floors too. Yeh man, we gotta work together to make things happen no doubt. I hope you’re feeling better!
