The End of The Project

LOCATION:  In our tiny house in Retama Village, in Mission, Texas
WEATHER:  Mostly sunny.  High 94

We spent quite a bit of time today texting and emailing the three other couples that have reservations with us on the Canal du Midi (southern France) canal boat ride in October.  Everything is up in the air.  The canal boat company says they will be open if the country is open.  Some of the couples do not want to go even if the cruise is still on.    Then, there is a matter  of whether we can even get there.  More to come….

George finished “The Project” today, well, at least an abbreviated portion of the cracked tile replacement project.  He decided to just do the 3 tiles that are the most visible and hold on the rest.  Today, he grouted the tiles, and then we started cleaning.  There is dust everywhere!!!  It seems like there is a film of dust on every surface I touch. When he was chipping the KwikSet layer out, the shards and dust flew everywhere.    I cleaned and cleaned today, but still it feels gritty.

This Facebook memory photo popped up from 4 years ago.  We were between housesits in Australia and  went to Darwin which is very tropical.  They have a lot of huge crocodiles there! 

In the evening, some neighbors down the street invited us to come over for a drink and to see their new outdoor kitchen.  They are from Hawaii and like to cook with a wok.  They had the kitchen made with a special burner just to fit a wok.  It is very nice. 

DINNER:  True-blue American dinner tonight – hamburgers on the grill, french fries, and a stir-fry of bell peppers and onions.  There were a lot of leftovers, which we will turn into an omelette for Sunday breakfast.
