Wow! What a long day.
I took all that slate up to the house today.
I also took the stained glass window that I picked up at the same stoop sale yesterday.
While I was up there I began chipping away at the old tiles on the kitchen floor. Unexpectedly difficult. I spent around two hours hammering away at these things and I didn't even finish 20%. But I did manage to put a massive bruise on my left forearm from where I hit myself several times when the sledge hammer glanced off the top of the chisel I was using. So, yeah, I hit myself in the arm repeatedly with a small sledge hammer. What about it?!
One of my goals for today was to start cleaning up the old maple factory flooring that I bought three years ago and which has been sitting in our shed taking up half the floor space ever since. I took rough measurements and now I need to figure out if we even have enough to cover the floor. I think we might come up short. And even if we do have enough in gross, we will net much less once I have ripped all the dirty edges off.
Remember this stuff?
What else? I don't remember. I'm really tired.
[UPDATE: This day's exertions resulted in a backache that lasted about three weeks.]
