Martha, here, well maybe not, b/c Martha wouldn't have let plant waterings run all over her new floor! Luckily, Buddy the cat, is curious and sat there mesmerized by the dripping overflow.

Jumped up from my trusty chair grabbing anything which would soak up water fast. The saucer that overflowed holds a fairly large plant in a fairly heavy porcelain pot. Did I ever mention that I'm a wimp physically?

Luckily I knew where our plastic camping pans were - with a big grunt and lots of whining (on my part), Wayne and I lifted the pot (heavy with the water) into the pan. What a wet mess on my precious floor - plus the plant stand was soaked. Luckily, the floor appears to not be marked.

Found a big plastic tray to set the pot in - it's all been sitting in the dining room as I don't have the energy to try to move the whole shebang back in place.

***The painting was done by my brother, Neil.

Oh, the Martha thing? I sprayed Pled*e on the dark brown saucer and it looks new. Something had to go right in all this.

Glad the floor is alright. The painting is beautiful.
