Larry finished one project, putting terracotta tiles in the area in front of the most-used entrance door. I like the way this came out, and it blends nicely with the brick hearth in the living room. The tile came from ReStore, Habitat for Humanity's resale store that has all kinds of great building supplies at low, low prices.
Now he's moved on to re-grout the tile on the kitchen counter. A few years back he re-did it with a dark grout and I have hated it. No matter how clean, the grout always looked dirty and it made the counter look darker. The white grout takes more cleaning time but it looks....clean.
My projects this week:
Learning all about BBPs and PPE and MSDS and such things for Staff Development Day training at work. Sound like fun? Hooo boy.
Finishing our income taxes. I got a good start last week, and then just left it. I can only handle so much of the IRS at one time, you know?
Helping Derek and Jared fill out the FAFSA. (This post is starting to look like alphabet soup).
Paying my BILLs. Capital letters because that's how they feel, big. (If BILLs were an acronym, what would it stand for--Busting it & losing lots, sucker? or Bitty income large loans? or But it looks like spending?)
Storytelling on Saturday night in Gallipolis, Ohio. (pronounced, gal-i-poe-LEES, thank you).
And maybe, maybe, if my mind isn't mush by the time all these things are finished, maybe I'll get some seeds started.
(What do all the above acronyms stand for? anyone want to guess?)
