It was a beautiful day, cool when we started at 8:30 but perfect as we finished at 10:30. We rode 25 miles. Some went 50 but I'm glad we stopped. I've not been able to get on the bike all week.
Oh, and on our way back from the turn-around point, we saw a Great Blue Heron fishing in a pond. Sweet!
The reason I couldn't ride is that we've had contractors at the house. We're finally doing the last of the 3 bathrooms! This is what we started with.
The shower in there was like a cave but the ceiling was higher than the ceiling in the sink area, so steam and everything would get trapped inside the shower creating mold issues. So we're doing the 3/4 wall with a glass panel from the wall to the ceiling, and adding a light in the shower, along with retiling with lighter tile and re-doing the floor. Adding a new vanity and mirror ... and painting.
On Thursday they were taking the old tile in the shower out and discovered that behind it was not backer board or drywall but CONCRETE, probably state of the art when the bathroom was built in 1967. They banged ALL DAY LONG and the parakeet screeched in sympathy. My blood pressure was through the roof!
But here's the mid-stage photo after they finished getting the concrete out. Yikes!
We are getting there!
