Since we were in the area, we stopped at the ReStore place. Lo and behold! They had tile there. Enough 4 inch tiles to do around our shower and in a neutral enough color to please us both. We counted out tiles, divided by 9 and multiplied by the 25 cents per square foot for a grand total of $7.25, plus tax. You can't beat that!
When we got home, J put air in my bike tires and adjusted the handlebars for me. This was a Christmas gift that we just brought home from R.I. on our last visit. His brother helped him track down and buy this old bike for a bargain price. I wanted 3 speeds and I wanted fenders. Do you know how hard it is to find that combo? J polished the chrome and it looks great. Just what I wanted.
You probably can't tell in this picture, but we do have little daffodils blooming. And the grass is green, and wait for it.......the snow is gone!
To finish up, a little dialogue.
J comes in and hands me a pen (clearly one he found somewhere)
"Try this pen out- do you like it?"
Me: "Yes, it's very nice"
J (with a grand gesture): "Keep it"
Me: "Oh mercy, what a man!"
J: "The least I could do for my little woman"
Ameranth: "You two are weird"
