Corona de Tucson
May 27, 2023
Monday is Memorial Day. It is the day set aside by our country to honor our fallen soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our nation and our freedom.
In keeping with the December, 2000 law signed by President Clinton, all Americans are encouraged to pause for a moment at 3:00 pm local time to honor those who lost their lives while serving in the armed forces. President Clinton noted, "The observance of a National Moment of Remembrance is a simple and unifying way to commemorate our history and honor the struggle to protect our freedoms."
We had new master bathroom and guest bathroom countertops, under mount sinks, and faucets installed on May 19th. The countertops were purchased thru Home Depot whose contractor is The Countertop Factory located in Tucson.. They did our kitchen a couple of years ago and we were very pleased with the product as well as the measuring and installation. We chose Silestone again rather than granite. Silestone is an engineered stone that is durable and non-pourous and requires little maintenance. Our week began working on a small project.
The mirror attached to the wall over the cabinet was removed along with the old countertops.
New tops, sinks and faucets were installed in both baths.
Joe worked his magic on the guest bath wall and I painted.
The Countertop Factory returned this past Friday to measure for the backsplashes which should be installed sometime the first week in June.
|Silestone color for both baths...|
|Master bath...I can't wait to get the backsplash and check this off the list.|
I'm not sure the job would have gone so smoothly without Jack supervising and staying on the job with Joe or without Dover cheering him on !
Other than a summer hair cut for Sally
|Should hear from Dr. Huang next week...|
Early morning walks continue to start the day. The most spectacular sunrise we have had in months !
|The sun rising from behind the Rincon Mountains...|
|A gorgeous sky...|
|The Santa Rita Mountains...|
Joe and I feed the birds, fill the birdbath, water plants and enjoy our rocking chairs. A few photos from my rocker this week...
|We have seen lots of Gamble's...but no babies yet.|
Loving on our puppies, rocking, walking and a few this and thats seem to have filled our days this week. Nothing exciting, and nothing boring...it's life and we are loving it ! Until next time,
