My projects

As part of my last full week of freedom before I'm back to school commitments, I have been pretty busy on a few things.
One of these has been my shower. I don't know if any of you ever run into the problem of nasty stuff getting behind the caulk and being impossible to clean, but my shower was really bad. I pulled out all the dirty caulk then spent hours scraping and cleaning out the gross stuff. This picture is after the caulk was removed and in the process of scraping.
Here I am all gross during the caulking phase.
And, finally the finished product. I love it now! I hope it lasts at least a little while!
This last weekend, my friend, Katie threw a Canadian party where the main event was to watch "Strange Brew." I hadn't seen it before, but am now a big fan. It is very dumb, but very funny, eh?
This fits in the "my projects" post because I offered to bring something to the party and got assigned to make a 7 layer dip that looked like the Canadian flag. This was my attempt. It's really hard to control diced tomatoes, but it turned out alright!

Well done, Alona!

We just make it a point to recaulk every stinks, but the strategy pays off, I think!
