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.
