...the last cement...

finally !



it's amazing just how much difference the texture of the sand can make...



smoothing out the bench seat...



here R's working on building the "dam"...
[the edge of the shower pan...]



and then, after hours of work...






the shower cement is done...



tomorrow...he starts the tile...

since there will be a lot of activity in & out...
what with mixing thin set, etc...
I talked with all concerned & decided that the critters...
are better off staying where they are...
until R is finished on Friday...

if he finishes early...[around 4...]
I'll start bringing them home then...
if not...I'll do it on Saturday...

Charlie & Sneaky Pie are prowling at the moment...
they're getting very restless in the bedroom all day...
but since that's the only place I'm feeding them...
I'm still able to lure them back in...

at least...so far...

stay tuned...

[I'm guessing...]UP...

I overheard him tell José that he thought the colors & pattern were"way cool"...;D
