Anticipating Christmas and The End Of Renovations

Wreaths, poinsettia and building renovation suppliesChristmas is eagerly anticipated worldwide right now. In my corner of the planet, I am also looking forward to the results of renovations on my apartment building.

The modernization started about a year ago and I see beautiful new workmanship every day. Dated pink wallpaper was replaced with serene, sensible beige. Moldings were added with drops a few inches from the ceiling to hide cable wires. The elevators were replaced with taller, safer ones. Marble flooring is being installed, which actually worries me: the inevitable icy winter weather will cause wet, slick floors. And you really don’t want to slip on marble.

But the disruptions didn’t stop management from adding the festive, seasonal touches that make this not just a structure, but home to, by my guess, over a hundred residents.
