The bathroom went well. There were some tears and doubts, some painting at 3am; but I forged ahead, and we now have painted ceiling and walls, and one tiled wall in the surround. Husband and I plan on tiling the remaining two walls Saturday. Yeah! Success!
I'm very excited at the prospect of peeing upstairs. Very. Excited.
We also had another trip to Big Bend. I was sick the week before we left, which made getting work done a challenge. as well as packing. and caring. Then, right when we were a good 3 hours from civilization, Husband discovers the camera is broken. The whole reason for the trip was to get pictures of more birds. It could not have gotten off to a worse start, but we still had a great time. We brought a lot of our own food and cooked on a propane stove and in a crock pot. That worked out really well and saved us a lot of money. It was nice to come back to the room after a day of hiking and have something hot and ready in the crock pot. Good friends and good food equal good times. Even when you have a broken camera.
Currently, I am barreling toward the weekend like a herd of stampeding buffalo (really, they are bison, but whatever). Ain't nothin' gonna stop me. Weekend! Here I come!
It will be a homey weekend. A weekend of food prep, yard work, bathroom tiling, laundry, dog petting, reading, and reflecting on how much God has blessed our lives.
I can't wait to get started.
