Busy, Busy, Busy!

Me and Teka have some home improvement projects underway, and we thought we would give you a guided tour! Just so all y'all know that we are not vegemetating or somethin'.
Here is our lovely back walkway, lined with boxes of tile and stuff.
There are also some neat ladders out there! We are hopin' that someday we might get brave enough to climb them, but mostly right now, we are busy just sniffin'.
This monster thingy makes a horrible screechy noise!
It chews up tiles and makes them smaller.
We do not understand why it likes to eat the tile.
We think the tile is pretty flavorless, actually.
This is what muzzer and Dad's bedroom looks like! Even muzzer usually keeps it neater than this.

Note the piles of STUFF on the floor!

Good thing we are not all sleeping in here, isn't it. We have moved down the hall to the guest room, which is OK, but the bed is a bit small for all of us. Muzzer usually gets up sometime in the night and goes to sleep on the living room couch. I sometimes go with her, leaving more space forTeka and Dad on the Guest Bed!

Most of the work is directed toward making the bathroom by the Muzzer and Dad Bedroom a bit more functional for hoomans who shower rather than using the tub for their ablutions. Oh yeah, and the old toilet was so short poor Dad had his knees up around his ears. Oops, wasn't supposed to share that!

Today was a big day, because the floor is now in place! I told muzzer that the tile made me dizzy, and she told me that was fine, maybe now there will be one place in the house she can go for a little peace and quiet.
I don't think that was nice of her to say that!
Anyway, this is what we are doing to support the economy.

kisses to all

PeeEssWoo: Ummm, just wait until one night of too much adult beverage...Muzzer might be changing her tune on the tile!

Gussie, my lad -- Did you and Teka do all that tiling yourself? We think it's very interesting and goes well with the house.

We do know why the bed was all covered -- we had our bathroom tiled and it is very dusty business.

But well worth the effort.

And when you were in the guest bedroom, did you find any wirey traces you remembered from Schmauss time???

Stay cool, pal!!

Sounds like the Mango estate. Something always under construction. I am familiar with the tile screecher. Most annoying. I wonder if the new wet room will have a special doggie spa area.

Hey! We'll be back, cuz we wanna read! But we're hungry and Mom said she'd feed us breakfast!

First, though, she found Best in Show on NetFlix and WE CAN WATCH IT ANYTIME ... on our computer! Thanks for the recommendation! We'll be happy dogs. Or, at least, Jake will be happy! I'll (Fergi) probably sleep.

More later....

Eric said...

Gussie what a fabbie job your doing. I guess you are getting sooper dirty with all the tiling works going on and can take major advantage while a bathroom is out of action...smart move pal. But then I've come to expect nothing less of you wise Gussie. I'm just off to knock a bit of sense into the leggededs at Tesco's - want to help out? Wiry wags, Eric xx

Abby said...

Wow...you shoulda had Noah's peeps come over and do that floor in the bathroom...they just bricked their driveway all by themselves...they coulda bricked your bathroom...it looks fab by the way...Mumsie loves that pattern!!!

Now we're thinkin' that if Muzzer is gettin' up every night to go sleep on the sofa, that she's gettin' very sleep deprived and probably crabby. So...I'm comin' down to start her on a new sleepin' regimen...brisk exercise walkin' the Lacie in the afternoon...yoga and doga after dinner...dog massage...for you and Teka right before bedtime; followed by some special tea I'm brewin'...she'll go right off to sleepy land in no time...specially since Muzzer and I get the bed and you dogs and your dad get the sofa...

I'll be there soonest, dear Gussie...

Love and kisses...

Gus, Please help!
Axl, Autumn's little brother has accidently bumped his head and has been very sick after that: vomit, seizure, hasn't eaten for a week, please, I'm begging you to visit Autumn's blog to support her and sending positive power to help for a good recovery!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Mango, Ximui and Chubs

I can't wait to see the finished project :)
Big licks to you

Princess Patches said...

We can't wait to see it when it's all finished! Our mom wants to tile 2 of our bathrooms, but in one of them, she'll have to use the 12 inch squares. The other one can have small tiles...then our mom's eyes can go all goofy!

That tile is going to perfect to upchuck on when your tummy isn't feeling well. It is going to be awesome.
