Run For Your Lives zombie run zombies

Long time no see, Internet. So of course there was Halloween, but before that, the Run For Your Lives zombie run (more of a hike-sprint-hike).

Connie covered it pretty well over at the aptly-titled Ryan, Connie, Emilia, and Liam. Thanks to her for volunteering a camera that I could drag through the mud and guts. And for linking to Usain Bolt's wiki article for us non-runners that have no idea who he is.

In addition to the suckers dressed for a run, there were lots of Raccoon Police and southern sheriffs but only a couple of dudes - like myself - legitimately prepared for a pandemic (not running in 90-degree weather, however).

Halloween itself consisted of parties the Saturdays before and day itself. My self-imposed Facebook exile means I have to actually request of friends photos from the events, but at least I have a few pictures of book-Dorothy, Scarecrow, and a vampirate.

Shower tiling detail

All the while the master bath has progressed steadily. After finishing tiling, I picked up $125 of Spectralock epoxy grout at the hardware store. When it didn't go very far (about 24 sq ft per mini-unit on regular tile), I ordered the commercial pack online.

That amount covered the shower area, leaving only the 8x5' floor in the vanity area. But for now I can wait the required ten days for the epoxy to cure and then have a master shower.

Week of tile

Wall tiling is progressing steadily. All that's left for the 12x12s is the foot of the wall, door frame, and shelf face.

I mostly finished the vaulting:

Burning the midnight oil

Busy days and nights. The beams have been verathaned. The shower and fireplace are nearing completion. Tomorrow will be a foray into flooring. This weekend will feature some prodigious laying of hardwood.
