All Tiles & Smiles… not

After the carpet in our front room was destroyed by unknown causes *cough* dogs *cough* we got a crazy idea. Let’s tile the room! But let’s not call in some stranger to do it for us. No, we would try to tile the room ourselves! How hard could it be?

Hard.

Very, very hard.

But we did it! And we have the pictures to prove it!

Alvin handled the, uh…

Existential crises, I guess?

After three days of dust, grout, and mortar we were finished, and the dogs were able to enjoy their room again! We napped.

 

One last thing, while you’re here. On our last entry we talked about getting ready to plant our first crop of the year. Well, with Hazels help I bring you…
