First waterlily bloom of 2011
I was going to try to post this yesterday, but the week continued to throw its curve balls. An early morning call from the floor guys (refinishing the original hardwoods in a unit of one of The Old Girls) had me adjusting to a budget and schedule change. Seems there are always surprises when you renovate.
This particular surprise was a hole in each of the bedroom floors the size of a full sheet of plywood... well, not a hole exactly, since the plywood was there... but the hardwood had been "replaced" with plywood, subsequent to some repair in the past, and covered with carpet. This required the adjustment for cost of repairing the holes (large project) and staining the floors as well as sanding and coating with polyurethane. Cha-ching. I could have opted to just cover them up again with carpet, but my goal is to get them back to their original glory. So, we are another week behind on finishing... and over the initial budget. Life in the lovin'-The-Old-Girls stlye.
At any rate, we had our first waterlily bloom this week!! And, the Fish Boys are growing and enjoying the warmer weather.
I, myself, enjoyed some sunshine and a Coke Zero earlier today right in this spot. I was celebrating finishing a report for the Historic Tyler on Tour committee! yea! Still have one more report before passing on all my duties to the next in line.
Hope you are having a swimmingly fine weekend!!
