Covered to the final corner

The last tile is down!

There is still final sealing and grouting to take place - but Dave has managed to tile the entire house laying the final tile this afternoon. It seems a looong time ago that he started at the other end in the study. It certainly turned into a knee bruising challenge.

Everything looks great - we are anxious to get our room completely finished and start sleeping in our bed again.

The documented last tile:

Warm stove - blowing snow - enjoying bermed home

Milos in the tunnel from our front door - looking pretty sad. on TwitPic
Over 2 feet of blowing snow made a tunnel out of the front lawn. It has even overwhelmed the "snow-monster Milos".

Dave has been on the tractor for over 3 hours clearning the drive and now I hear him pushing snow off the roof. Obviously, no school today which expanded our winter vacation (due to snow, ha).
The Tulikivi is warm and the cocoa hot - things could be worse.

Another bedroom floored

It has been a long time since we have posted another step toward completion. But, today we move to only one room with concrete floors. The 2nd bedroom has been tiled - we used a grey slate which I think Dave did a great job laying. I am sure our guests will appreciate not waking up to concrete during their next visit.

One more bedroom (ours) and then window and door trim - it is getting close.

2 Leonbergers -more than twice the fun

A dog post.
Tomorrow, my female leonberger turns 10!  See Sophie's page.

Why is this important? Because giant breed dogs age quickly - she is in her mid-70's human years according to many "experts".  I brought her home in the cabin of a United flight from Cleveland, OH to Portland, ME ten years ago.  She was so quiet in her carrier (all 18 pounds of her), that many didn't even know there was a puppy on the plane.  Since that day, she has stolen our hearts (see tribute on above page).  Just wanted to say "Happy Birthday".

We also have a 4 year old male - Milos's page.
He is a lover and takes very good care of his "Queen".  We celebrated his birthday at the end of December.

If you have pets,  give them hugs tonight and remember they depend on you!
