When I got home, I did some staining of half timbers and then decided that I wanted to make sure that I had a suitable tile floor for the kitchen.
Zar and Tessie got into an argument about the suitability. Tessi con and Zar pro. I have used this particular floor before. It is one of my favorites from this Dover book.
I don't know if it is still in print, but if it is, it is invaluable for tiles. I simply sized it with my TPS 15 greeting card program and printed it out on card stock. I will glue it to a piece of mat board and then incise the grout lines with a fine stylus. The rest of the floor will be carpeted in the living room and probably wood in the bedroom area.
I am now looking for fancy ceilings. I am looking in here. This one was first published in 1977. I got it second hand several years ago. Again, it is wonderful, but I imagine that you would have to search for it second hand. Good luck!
While I am being lazy, Spike and Fuzzy pup are vigilantly guarding the opening in the foundation. Something or someone must have moved in overnight. I am going to let them handle it for now. They seem to have things under control.....Maybe by tomorrow I will have actually accomplished something.
See you then.
