Do you remember I told you about those big noises my mom was making in the bathroom? Well, this is what she did. She changed the tiles of the shower! She took pictures of the whole process but something happened to them. We only have these ones. The floor of the shower was not well leveled and it caused that the water was always there after a bath. My mom got tired of this and she decided to do something about it. She had never done something like this before and she thought it could not be so difficult (silly mom). After a battle to take out the old tiles, cut the new ones, the cement and the level... she finished! The work is far from perfect but much better than it was. Now the water runs perfectly to the strainer.


Sunday lunch
Tuna biskuits

They are made of the same dough of the tortillas. Filled with beans. Green sauce. Cheese. They say they are delicious but I really don't know because I did not have the chance to taste them!



Have a good night

Hi Lorenza,
Your mom did a terrific job! What hard work, too. Glad you got some wallymelon at least! The tuna biskits look really yummy.

love & wags,

I hope blogger works this time. Had trouble commenting before.
Your mum is so clever to do that tiling work. My pinky D would never be able to do that.

Peanut said...

Your mom is quite the gal to do that all by herself. Wallymelon is the best of course.

Rambo said...

Wow! You have a very handy dandy mom for sure. My G-Mom would never even try that. Hope you enjoyed your wallymelon. It sure looks delish.

We'd love to try Tlacoyos! It looks good!!

Arabella said...

Goodness! I love watermelon, its a real treat. Your mom must have worked really hard on the bathroom - my mom wants to do a similar thing but she's afraid to screw it up. I think your mom gave her courage. We'll see.

Hi, Lorenza -

Your mom did a great job on the shower fixing it up. Papa could take lessons from her.

The tuna biscuits look yummy. Mama loves watermelon but we haven't had any yet.

Love -


Hi, Lorenza -

Can I have some of that watermelon, too?

Love -


Rosco the wonder mutt said...

Momoko said...

Hi,Lorenza!I ate watermelon too.And I ate the seed of it.

Deetz said...

I am proud of your mum, that is a wonderful tile job. My mum and dad did the kitchen counters in tile and they had never tiled before either. That food looks delicious. Oh, and a sloppy joe is loose hamburger mixed with this sauce served on a hamburger was really good

Aniemother said...

Your mom is very clever fixing the shower! And that food looks yummy.. You should get some! I love watermelon.. my favourite fruit. Mom will leave me some red on the inside (she'll eat out of a wedge with a spoon) to gnaw. I actually had some a couple of minutes ago! :D


Toffee said...

Okay...that whole putting tile in the bathroom sounds and looks very difficult!!! Kudos to your mom!!! Seriously. No wonder she made such delicious food - she deserved it!

Petra said...

My mom's mouth fell open when she saw what your mom did. Where does she get this talent?

And Motch would love that tuna recipe; that looks as good to her as the wallymellen looks to me!

Pedro said...

You mom is very handy! Good job Mama-Lorenza! Enjoy your shower.

Gus and Louie said...

Good job mom you do wonderful work.. Mom always lets Dad do that kind of stuff at our house.. He seems to know how to do most everything. She thinks she will keep him for another 28 years.. They had their 28th anniversary on the 14th.. She says it is to late to break in a new model.. We love our dad...

Lady Kaos said...

The shower looks great! Dad did some tiling in our house and he didn't like the leveling, cutting and all that either.

The Army of Four said...

Woo! I love watermelon! It's my FAVORITE thing. Except for chicken cooked with green chilis.

Abby said...

Hi, Lorenza...

Your Mom did a great job...My Mom wants her to come here & do ours, too...

That wallymelon looks delish...I bet it cools you off...

Abby xxxooo

Deefor said...

Your new tiles look really really nice. Your mom has a lot of talent. Hope they don't put you in there for a bath.
Nice dinner.

Kathryn and Ari said...

You have a very talented mom! The Tlacoyos look fabulous. Do you think she'd let you post the recipe on your blog?

PS- Ari loves wallymelon, too!

Your mom did a great job on the Bathroom. My Mommy and Daddy are also doing something like that in the bathroom. I hope they are done soon, I hate getting a bath in the kitchen sink.

Paw to you later

Good evening lorenza.
The bath is constructed, and it is serious.
It goes to a public bath when under construction when it is Japan.
In the United States, is there a public bath?

And, it is instigating of the tuna of the cookie delicious dish.
And, a wonderful dessert is the highest. :)

from loved ume tyan

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

Lorenza, tell your mom that she did a great job on the shower. Our mom thought SHE was the only one silly enough to take on such a big project. The wallymelon looks yummy and really cool.

Chloé said...

Mango said...

Your mom is so brave to take on those tiles. She did a great job! Those tuna biscuts look pretty good.


Mango said...

Lorenza -
My friend Dark only speaks Spanish on his bloggy! He write me in English, but I am never sure what he is up to. Maybe you could make friends with him too.


P.S. Sometimes I use online translator to see what he is up to. But it gets confused. Maybe his Spanish is not so good.

Anonymous said...

Hi Lorenza! I love watermelon too. I don't get it very often but it is yummy!!

Patience-please said...

Wow! your mom is the cleverest, and WOW you have a LOT of comments!!!! Everybody loves sweet Lorenza!

What a great job Mom did! She should get an extra cookie for that.

Sami & Baylee said...

Hi Lorenza,

Isn't Watermelon the best? I love it too! Yummy

Super Boy & Baby-Licious said...

Your mom is so skillful. Our mom thinks that is too tough to do.

WinstonBerry said...

Hi Lorenza!
I think your mom did a great job, especially given that she never did anything like that before! It looks good! It's great that you mom is so handy! And she puts out a great spread, too! The "Wallymelon" would be my favorite!!!!

Winnie :)

CoCo said...

Your Mom did great with the tiles on the bathroom floor. My Mama could never do that. She is a makeup artist and can make girlies very pretty, but never do a good job at house repair. Your Mom is talented!

I think I ate Wallymelon on this day too. It was super hot that day and my Mama took pictures of me eating Wallymelons too!
