Tile Respect

I have a new found respect for those who lay tile, much like roofers, this is a job nobody wants. It is a body buster. I was thinking...since I am currently working with mosaic as an artistic medium, this little patio job would be a piece of cake. Well, that is some stinking thinking! I had conveniently managed to forget just how long it took me to set the powder room mosaic!

This is day five and the hard work continues (despite the wretched smoke-filled air from the terrible Gila fires, nearly 152,000 acres are burning and the morning wind fills the Tularosa basin with air so dense with smoke we cannot see the Sandia's....feeling bad for the folks in and around Silver City).
Our goal is to grout both patios by Friday, fingers crossed! Again, thanking our lucky stars for the help of friend and tile guru Rick. Left to our own devices, Cope and I would have been tiling well into fall!!





Good friend and Nija ~ Rick tiling himself into a corner...

Victoria, I love learning what you cook. It always looks so pretty! I admit, though, it leaves me feeling pretty guilty when I go and pop the quickest thing I can into the microwave!

Susan, Thank you! I am so happy to know you enjoy my posts! No guilt aloud though...you are working! ;)
