I had a fantastic weekend of diving in Victoria and Nanaimo (BC), and it was wonderful sleeping in a REAL bed again! We first dived Race Rocks in Victoria, and then dived the Saskatchewan, Cape Breton, Riv Tow Lion and Jesse Island in Nanaimo with Ken and Carolyn from Diver's Choice.
Yesterday we ran some errands and picked up the bathroom tile at Home Depot. Well, HALF of the tile anyhow. It seems the other half of our order is currently lost somewhere.
Today we replaced the laundry room window, and then spent most of the day crawling around under the house. We had to fix a leak in the existing bathroom/kitchen drain, then we finished plumbing the drain for the new shower. Finally, we nearly finished plumbing the water pipes for the shower.
Now, that may not sound like much, but everything runs at a snail's pace when you're crawling around on your belly in a 2-foot crawlspace. Here's a shot of what we're dealing with:
You never know what kind of creepy-crawly things you're going to find under your house. Of course, you have the usual spiders, bees and other critters, but I also found an abandoned rat's nest in the insulation. Then I came upon something that I never expected.
WARNING: WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO SEE MAY CAUSE NIGHT SWEATS, HALLUCINATIONS AND A GENERAL SENSE OF THE HEEBY-JEEBIES. VIEW AT YOUR OWN RISK.
It appears a cat met its demise under our house sometime in the distant past, judging by the mummy-like condition its skull is in. I'm going to leave it where it's at to scare the rats away. =)
