Yesterday was kind of tiring. There was massive progress in the plumbing disaster recovery. (photos here: http://marthawells.tumblr.com/post/45693225626/plumbing-disaster-recovery) All the holes in the ceiling and walls are filled in now, except for the one under the sink. There was sawing which produced a lot of dust again, but at least I was more prepared for it this time and the clean-up didn't take three hours. The contractor is going to have to come back to sand (which means another dust storm) and texture and paint, and then we need to replace the moldy carpet. So that's a relief, and it will be a bigger relief when it's all done.

In annoying news, I found out that the payment I sent in for my credit card bill had not arrived, so the company had of course immediately canceled the credit card, even though I've never been late with a payment before. I got that straightened out, but can't use the card for a couple of days. Also I had some bad cuts on my hands from various household disasters and one of them had still been hurting way after it should have healed up. Yesterday a small piece of wood popped out of it. Yeah, it feels much better now.

Stone Kissed by Keri Stevens
When Delia Forrest talks to statues, they talk back. She is, after all, the last of the Steward witches. After an arsonist torches her ancestral home with her estranged father still inside, Delia is forced to sell the estate to pay his medical bills. Her childhood crush, Grant Wolverton, makes a handsome offer for Steward House, vowing to return it to its former glory. Delia agrees, as long as he'll allow her to oversee the restoration.
