Grouting Away

The grout is going in. It turns out that there was not *enough* grout, because when you have tile in this style, it takes a *lot* of grout. So when our contractor left for the day, I went back to the store to get more grout.

Sadly, the store is in the middle of a going out of business sale, the owner of the small chain having decided to retire. Happily, they had the correct grout still in stock.

(It really is a shame that these guys are going away. They had an incredible selection of tile at really good prices.)

Grouting will resume on Monday.

Meanwhile, we took advantage of the state of the kitchen to unpack some more boxes. And we made a pot of chili for dinner, which is the first real meal actually cooked in the new kitchen. Last Sunday, I grilled steaks and we baked potatoes and prepared simple salads, but when the main course comes off the grill outdoors, I don't know if that really counts as "cooking in the new kitchen".

The chili definitely counts. :)
