Favorable Results

David Stewart Photo by David Stewart.

Kneel, rise, s-t-r-e-t-c-h … always a fraction of an inch beyond my reach. I’ve been working every day for hours – weeks. It’s taking so long, but I like the results. The approval in my husband’s eyes gives me the energy to continue. People are asking how I did it and I delight in giving them all the details. Sometimes even I stop to admire my work. The thing I like most about it is the simple maintenance – and the graceful beauty, of course. Once the last coat of polyurethane is applied, I’ll be finished with the floor.

  11. Very sweet and simple. Lovely!

  12. I like this very much. I did not expect that ending. Neat!

  13. I like the simple relating of the home-y works she’s doing and the time she’s spending on something that will be so worthwhile. I didn’t know exactly what to expect when I began reading so you surprised me in a relaxed way. (I also wish she’d come and do our floors when she’d done.) 🙂
