Day Three of the Project

pro·ject

Yesterday was a gloomy, rainy day.  This morning when we awoke the sun was trying to break between the clouds.

And today is day three of the sink project and this is what it looks like:

I know, it doesn’t look much different from yesterday.  We have to wait for the section in front of the hole to dry.  This is where the concrete needed a bit of repair work.  The tap is in place and is working and the big, pink bowl to the left is currently serving as our kitchen sink.  It’s a little inconvenient but it works and in the end we’ll have a nice, big, clean sink taking the place of the cracked, dirty, concrete sink.

Spousal Unit was wearing what he calls eye pro when he was doing all the cutting but still managed to get some dust in his eye and is  suffering from an ojo ailment.  He refused to go get checked out at the clinic so we took a trip up to Dusty and El Gordo’s yesterday.  There, they flushed out his eye and gave him some eye drops.  Yet another thing to add to my list of what our friends bring to our life.  SU’s vision is not very good now so he’s grounded at home resting.  This isn’t necessarily a bad thing for a guy who is constantly on the go.

There were about six Hummingbirds out in the garden this morning buzzing around with a large group of Hummingbird Moths.  I went out to look at them and they were whizzing around my head.  This city girl still finds it fascinating that these little creatures have chosen my garden to visit so often.  Little Miss Bossy Pants hasn’t come by yet but in her place was an equally bossy male.

The house directly beside us has sold and the workers were there for half a day Saturday and are there again this morning frantically trying to complete all the little things that need finishing.  More changes on the calle!

I’m off to yoga this morning, leaving the grumpy patient on his own.  Dr. Dusty says he has to rest his eye for at least another two days.  I think I have my work cut out for me on what is promising to be a lovely day in the campo.

    Hope SU’s eye recovers! My neighbor was doing some building on his house and got too much concrete dust in his lungs and was pretty sick for a while. That concrete dust is not good for a person.
    I had a dream that I saw a hummingbird moth and thought of you!

      LOL! I thought there was only one around but there’s a bunch of smaller ones here now all buzzing around and dive bombing. Every little critter seems to be co existing fine now, until LMBP shows up intermittently. 🙂

      He was wearing a dust mask so hopefully that worked with the dusty part. He probably should have used his goggles instead of just the safety glasses for this job because he was right over top of it. It looks a bit better today but still looks like he’s been on a three day bender. 🙂

I'd love to hear from you!
