I am not a hardwood floors person. I don't like the noise. I like my dust hidden in the carpet. I like soft on my feets and warm.  There was wall to wall high pile taupe carpet installed by the builder when I moved in here as the first occupant. It took 12 years to get disgusting. But it was a battle to make it last that long.

So when I went shopping for new, I looked for longevity. I bought a mottled colored, short pile darkish colored carpet that was half water resisting chemicals and half fiber. I mean when it was new, you could spill anything on this puppy and it would bounce right off. That was 11 years ago. Today I spilled a thermos full of ice water on it - admittedly on a low traffic section - but that water just beaded up like your favorite science project and waited patiently for me to get a towel.  Godblessyou, carpet, you are the best even still today.

Good day in the sewing room:

Baseball tonight.
