Weekend update

Saturday was spent finishing off the tiling for the backsplash in the kitchen. Custom fitting the tiny pieces in the the nooks and crannies was very labor intensive. Now I know why people pay good money to have this work done. Hard to believe that was just yesterday. Late in the day I got out on a bike ride on the ATT for a change to the ballpark and back.

Today started off with some grocery shopping and the a grueling bike ride at Beaver Dam with swindunbar. I have the GPS, but too tired to upload it right now. It was 10 miles on the west loop, south loop and also the drop zone which was a lot of fun--HUGE drops and run offs. I'll take pics next time. So after over 2 hours on the trails I was ready to come home.

After a late lunch and some Formula 1 racing, I finally got to the job of grouting my tiling job. After 3 hours I only got 40% done. This is a lot of work. I also don't have enough grout and will need to get some more. I got to a stopping point and called it a night. With all of the tiling I did yesterday and more today of reaching under the cabinets to apply grout, my back was done and I could do no more. So far, I'm very pleased with the results. I'm starting to realize this is like art work and it does not have to be 100% perfect. No tiling job is perfect in every day. I'm not sure if I'll resume the work Monday night or Tuesday night.

That explains why I saw you leaving Lowe's in Chapel Hill Saturday evening. Must've been picking up supplies. You had a very determined look going on!

Hey, are you qualified for and might be interested in a Sr. Web Developer position, but in Philadelphia?
