Below is what I have been keeping busy with.
I am acid staining the concrete pieces that will become the floor.You can see them all piled up in the stable. I can't get to the lawn mower. And the other day one of Senor's drip hoses burst open into a twenty foot arching waterfall and he could not get to the replacement parts. So I started working on this.
Below in the two photos is the base coat, one single stain. When the stain goes on, it smokes and bubbles up. Yes I wear gloves and my kiln mask.
And here is one application of his mixed color over the base coat. After application and drying time, the concrete is rinsed. I can certainly see why those folks would have a hard time with that last process. For me it is easy, my pieces are out in the yard. I cannot imagine attempting this inside a house.
We are moving right along with all this stuff, the roof top on the game room has finally been finished, with all its concrete and styrofoam and sand and rebar and whatever else it is that Senor has up there.
The garden lettuce bolted while we were in San Diego and the pump switch flipped off so Humberto spent a few days watering the yard and garden by hand, pulling up water from the cistern in a bucket.
Weather does not get any better, slightly overcast with lots of cool breeze. I am loving every day.
Que le vaya bien! Linda Lou
