E.B. came in last night. He saw me out in the front yard and ran a quarter of a block to me. He had been down the street, I suspect, behind a house he likes. I once had to find him on that house's two story roof. I saw him up on the top of the house looking like a Halloween cat calling to me to come get him. I could only stand in the street and watch him.
I walked the neighborhood at one calling to him and then he came back to our house by the time I reached home.
I had a glass company repair man come to the house this afternoon to assess the shower door. It is going to fall out of its frame. The door hinge is broken the inexpensive twenty year old door has served its purpose. Time to replace it. Of course that means the remodeling job I wanted to do sometime in the future must be done now. I will call my contractor in the morning and have him come have a Diet Coke® and discuss the situation. I need to take the useless, giant, silly bathtub out and put a shower with a bench across that entire back wall with a glass wall and door. A pebble floor, glass tiles, and a marble tile floor of cool, mint greens would look very soothing. A bathroom shouldn't be too jarring in the morning.
We did have a pink bathroom in Waco. Pink tile on the walls and the floors. A pink bathtub. Our little Boston terrier, Checkers, loved the tub. She would run and jump in while I was in the tub.
I want a shower with a bench big enough that I can wash the dogs in the shower. It is going to cost so much to fix the door that I have to get the entire shower redone. Which means the entire shower wall and floor and fixtures. And take out the ridiculously useless, Hollywood, middle class idea of what a bathtub should look like which is so large and wasteful. A shower with a bench is so much more practical. And useful.
Gracie Rose is still at the vet. She can come home tomorrow but she has an upper respiratory infection and is on meds. Dogs often have these illnesses when they come out of pounds and shelters. It is quite common because it is hard to keep those places clean and disinfected.
So tomorrow I am home again, averaging grades and talking to the contractor.
