Exciting Day!

The koi are here!
Renee and her husband, Brian, came and installed the mosaic today. She brought it in three pieces. The little bits are all taped together.

It will set overnight. Then tomorrow she will take the tape off. If any pieces come up with the tape they will have to be stuck in again and set for another night. Then on Wednesday they will come and grout it.
Each koi in the mosaic is a different type. They have Japanese names for the different colors and patterns. I remember one is called fawn and another is four. She said she would write the names down for me. I am so excited for it to be complete!
Also today, my dad put up the shades in the master bathroom. I can now shower and potty in there without fear of exposing myself to the world. He also hung the mirrors and toilet paper holder in the master bath and the towel bar, hand towel ring, and toilet paper holder in the guest bath. He is awesome!

Holy mackerel!!! I know they're not mackerel, but that is one gorgeous tile mural. I can't wait to see it! I am a little bummed that I can't watch you in your bathroom anymore, though.
