I love bare floors so much that even to this day I still enjoy sitting or laying on bare cold floors for a spell in the hot summer months.
Doing so just seems to cool my body down when it’s a super hot and sticky day at times, especially when the electricity goes down in our area which happens a lot here in the country. The storms, hurricanes and tornado’s do a job on the electrical grid and so most times while on the floor I take the time to play a game of old school jacks while leaning my back on the sofa.
Each time I play with jacks it brings me back to the good old days when my sisters and I used to play a game or two.
So yeah there were times when I did have a new carpet installed in the living room area, a room that was occupied very rarely and if so only on special occasions.
I also recall having had Berber carpet installed in our master bedroom one time too.
But we always never put wall to wall carpet in the children’s bedrooms, play areas or in high traffic areas because we knew these were cleaning disasters just awaiting to happen and more work for me.
And so every time my neighbor comes by for yet another cup of coffee or to borrow a cup of sugar or flour and says “Why you put those beautiful quilts on the floors, are you serious? I’ll just continue to smile brightly and un-apologetically say yeah…. seriously! LOL!
