Handyman, My life

Memorial Day rainstorm

Monday afternoon there was a magnificent Florida downpour. This is my back yard. In the distance you can see my shop. The bare ground in the foreground is an ancient brick patio. Other non-grass areas have recently been reclaimed from the encroaching jungle. The creek alongside the garage is a brick walkway, which has sunk over the years.

I spent the weekend grouting the new tiles in the kitchen. The downstairs floor is finally done! Since Alicia left, I tiled the bathroom, breakfast room, kitchen, and laundry room. It involved moving appliances around, which made it even more of a hassle than usual. But it’s done! I’ve repainted the baseboards. Last night I nailed them back up.

Alicia is due back Friday night. I have an enormous amount of cleaning to do by then.

Sorry I haven’t been on all that much. WordPress is blocked at one of my work locations, and when I’m home I don’t have much time to get on because of all the work on the house.

  1. That was fun to watch! I love watching it rain!
    Did you go play in the mud?! πŸ˜€
    Sounds like you have been super busy tiling! Yay for tile and for all the work completed! πŸ™‚
    I hope you get all the cleaning done before Friday!
    Welcome Home to Alicia! I pray she has a safe and enjoyable trip!
    HUGS!!! to both of you! πŸ™‚

    • I didn’t play in the mud this time.

      I barely started on the cleaning last night because I was rebuilding the laundry room shelves. They’re up but need a coat of paint, which will slow me down tonight as well. I’ll really have to hustle to get ready for Alicia by Friday night.

    Now that is some very cool energy in that down pour.
    The kitchen sounds really nice and bet Alicia will be thrilled with it.
    Have a good evening and a good day tomorrow.
