Long Time No Blog

I know, but I've been busy. With what, you ask? We've begun remodelling our master bathroom, we attended my cousin's son's wedding, we had out of town guests, we heated the pool for a swim party, we weathered a storm that was so bad it lifted a glassed top patio table and threw it into the pool, breaking the top into a zillion pieces...

Anyway, it wasn't that the bath was in bad shape or even out of date. The problem was the small shower with the nonadjustable shower head. The people who lived here before us must have been tall. At 5'3" the shower spray hit me directly in the face. After a year of that I had had enough. So we called the contractor and began the task of removing the extremely small shower that spit in my face and replacing it with a linen closet/hamper and removing the large garden tub which had become an extremely expensive laundry hamper and replacing it with a luxuriously large shower. See before and during pictures below:

The downside: lots of cement dust and climbing the stairs every morning to shower.
The upside: it's fun to pick out tile and paint.
The cliche: to make an omlette you have to break some eggs.

What? No writing projects to keep you even busier!?

I particularly like the "during" pics of the tub faucets just standing there supported by their copper pipes. Oh, and that cliched omelette sounded good, but are you planning to paint the ceiling "eggshell white?"

Lastly, you'll have to ask RobotJam about Bubbles. The panda thing was all his idea.

It all works out in the end. You should enjoy the spray now.
