Project not completed!!!

I mentioned last week that I hoped to show you a picture of our FINISHED stucco project. But I also mentioned that many times things do not happen as planned. We are moving along, but it's not completed yet. Yesterday they put on the 1ST coat of Stucco. Today the 2ND coat with the design will go on and Monday or Tuesday it will be painted..... It is looking different tho, here are a few pictures.

Just getting started. (click on all pictures to enlarge)

The first batch of Stucco goes up. They need to work on the shadowy side to keep it from drying so fast.

With 3 guys working on this little building, it doesn't take long.

Just about DONE!!!

There it is,,,,,,,,,1ST coat on!!! Now it needs to dry and set up good before the 2ND "design" finish coat is applied,,,, Manana. Ha ha, hopefully tomorrow!

This next picture is for our faithful readers Jerry and Suzi. After Jerry's comments on last weeks Blog.......

Jerry said:

"I'll bet you don't have any doors and windows that open onto a brick wall or staircases that end at a ceiling!"

This fellow had me worried....

Come to find out, he was just doing some measuring and cutting for the pieces above the door and he didn't cover the opening!!! Pat and I had a good laugh..........:-)

So,,,,again we HOPE to have a COMPLETED picture to show you Wednesday. But then again, you know how that goes! Manana!!
That's about it for this week. But, of course, one quick shot of Ms Mega2:

I just had to try and get a picture of her sleeping on Ms Pat's lap. She opened her eyes just as I clicked the shutter. She sleeps in some mighty peculiar positions!!!!! Just relaxin!!! You can see the scar on her stomach is healing nicely........

It was a GREAT WEEK !!!!

Thanks for stopping by. God Bless you all.

Looks like one spoiled Cat to me.

Mike, sorry we didn't respond yesterday -- you know we like to be first! But we had a busy morning with out-of-state company arriving at 9:00am on a Sunday! And the casita was an unholy mess! We had to skip blogs yesterday.

Thanks for the special treat for us. That would be a bit of a question to see that material across your door!

By the way, Suzy is spelled with a 'Y' most aften, although her Dad ususally managed to write "Suzzie."
