An Arm and A Leg
There's giant grasshoppers in Florida. We saw some of the same type when we lived In Arkansas. There are a few arms and legs helping us with our home remodel. I couldn't help but think this grasshopper wanted to help out too.
Gary was pressure washing in preparation of painting the outside of our home. I kept snapping photos and every time the flash went off he stopped and looked around. Finally he saw it was my camera making the flashes of light. We both got a laugh out of that.
Here's a shot of our entry tile laid out to see what the hopscotch pattern would look like. Sometimes it's better to do a dry run before laying the tile in thinset. I guess test tiles in ceramics are dry runs of a kind.
Cindy Shake wanted a photo of the pool. I think she was hoping for a shot of Gary and I actually in the pool. We plan to have a BBQ for the tile guys in a couple of weeks. Hopefully we'll have a few action shots then.
No pottery making happened today, I spent too much time running to get this and that for laying the tile. But the evening is young and Gary has brought me another box of supplies from the bus. I thought I had all my supplies in my car. I can't believe how much stuff I have; what a thrift store junkie I am. Wonder what ideas I can drum up tonight. Comments and suggestions are welcome.
