What a Drip! (Part 4)

I was writing about our life in a snow globe last week, and I'm now writing about our life in a bubble. Yep, we're living in a bubble, but it's not exactly bubblicious!

The crew spent the majority of the day yesterday creating our plastic bubble. First, we'll look down.

My hubby looks a little stressed, doesn't he?

Next, we'll look up.

Looking up to the loft from the great room:  full-blown bubble mode.

After climbing over the chair, ottoman, coffee table and sofa, I was able to take this photo from the foyer.

Heading up the steps to the loft.

Getting a better view of the great room ceiling from the loft.

I'm sure those ceiling fans were fun to wrap.

Duct-tape-city in the peak of the loft.

They're digging out the insulation that made contact with water today, doing more prep work upstairs and spraying in the great room. They hope to finish the spraying in the great room this afternoon, so we can (kinda sorta) have some limited use of that room, as it doesn't look like they'll be able to return to our job until next Thursday. Yessiree, we're still a long way from getting back to normal.

Back on the bright side again, the sun is shining and the sky is blue today. Even though I'm trapped in the bedroom, this is the view from my sanctuary.

We thoroughly enjoyed our short mental, emotional and physical break from the house last evening when we had dinner at The Hut. Steve had fish, wild rice and a salad; and I had a pork chop, wild rice and a salad. Everything was delicious. Then, we really treated ourselves and ran into Pat's Foods in Calumet to purchase 2 New York Strips (on sale) for Sunday evening. They don't look as wonderful as the steaks we used to get at Jack's in Saginaw, but they'll do just fine for a nice meal off the grill. Although we don't have TV service to catch the end of the Super Bowl, we figured we could still have our traditional Super Bowl meal and try to find the game on the radio. 

All is still well (with our souls) in the Keweenaw.
