Home Project: Laying Carpet Squares!

Franklin received the boxes of new carpet
We're always coming up with home projects, and last week Tom installed new carpet squares in our den. Our den used to be our garage, but we converted it into a room in 2009 or so. We've got a TV in there, and our exercise

equipment as well as some recliners. It's Tom's favorite "after work" room where he crashes.

  Once the den was completed, Tom found and installed really cool carpet tiles (that were about 2' by 2' each). Over the years, they've endured dog rescue "accidents" and just got dirty so we looked for new carpet.

   The boxes of new carpet squares, a lighter color, arrived on a Monday, and Monday night after work Tom decided to install them. Of course, the dogs supervised. 

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
