Most of the time I try to update my blog every other day, but my internet service provider seems to sense when I’m getting ready to upload photos (usually in the evening) and slows my connection down, often cutting off access to Xanga entirely. It is almost as if True Corporation is deliberately keeping me from posting. Anyhow, I tricked them today by sneaking in a morning post!
A month into the pool remodel project, the tile work is almost done. You will recall that our plans for a poolside Thanksgiving potluck party were interrupted by the announcement last month that the pool renovation would commence the next day. Thankfully, that worked out okay.
In fact, this picture is four days old. In the meantime they have laid the rest of the pool tile and grouted the whole thing. According to the schedule, there is a month left in the project, which leads me to wonder what else needs to happen that would take so long. Maybe you need to let the tile adhesive and grout cure for a few weeks? They do need to fix the light fixtures and finishes the edge tile, plus I think the pump system will be replaced, too.
Yesterday, I had to run an errand to the Silom district. While descending from the pedestrian walkway I caught sight of this motorbike driver who was trying to keep his load balanced. “What was he carrying?” I wondered.
Sure enough, loads and loads of green onions. Who in the world needs so many green onions delivered all at once? Or maybe this is a new Community Supported Agriculture initiative in which farmers deliver direct by motorbike?
