Tomorrow, Monday, they start to grout all the tile. Then they seal the grout. I am so excited. I can not wait till everything is done. There is still the issue of putting all the doors back in, making sure they open and close properly, the stairs need to be finished and the bottom landing tiled. Then of course the paint needs to be touched up in a few places, and then the rugs can go down and the furniture finally put in place. The back deck needs to be scrubbed off where they cut the tile and mixed the mortar. Ooh it is a journey.
I have to remind myself that the counter tops have to be removed and replaced the following week. So maybe do not put the rugs down yet. Also, the cook top is to be replaced. That means only oven cooking and no water for maybe two days in the kitchen. Ugh! I will think about that next week.
Meanwhile,I still have to eat this week. Here are a few of the out to eat meals I
have had to suffer through last week and
this weekend. I have been trying out the restaurants that are small and local.
The food has been delicious!
|Grilled Grouper Sandwich|
|A Gyros Sandwich|
|Fresh Grilled Trout|
Sometimes I just feel like a big lunch and try to do peanut butter and jelly or cereal for dinner. I must say the fresh trout was delicious. I am anxious to try it again. I am thinking of investing in a good fishing rod and trying to catch my own. Maybe this summer when the house is unpacked and I need a lazy day.
