1/2 and 1/2 Make A Whole Entire Backsplash

The tilers worked hard today.  It's finished!  YEAH.  I think it looks grand.  When I get some curtains made to cover the shelves below the counter it will look 'done'.  Whew!

The other half.  Now, I know you are thinking .... what the heck has R16 got to do with anything?  Absolutely nothing.  I saw it, I liked it, I bought it, I put it in the back splash.  I think it adds 'interest'.  I have a liking for letters and numbers.  Together is a wonderful combination.  : o )

Done.  Complete.  Fully dressed.  The whole enchilada.

The landscapers came today.  Lupi is back.  The gentle giant.  We drew in the dirt.  Where do I want the tree to go?  Where do I want the fountain to go?  Could I do this?  Could I do that?  In the end, I decided on an all brick yard.  I didn't like the gray slate with the house.  The fountain is going to be on the side wall where I wanted it in the first place.  I have also designed a Sun, a Moon and a small star which will be laid into the ground in pebbles.  (a form of a mosaic)  It will be simple and lovely.  Work began today.  It could take up to 5 weeks.  AND, this is Mexico (?)
Today I found in my papers, old writings about my Mamma and Papa.  It brought back so many memories.  I have begun to add these pieces to my writing site,  Fragments of a Woman.  If you are interested in reading them, please go HERE.

When I miss you, I don't have to go far ... I just have to look inside my heart because that's where I'll find you.
