Construction supervisor for the morning

It's Friday, my day at home, and it looks like I'm spending it as a job supervisor. Inspection and deliveryCollapse )

Other construction news: tile guy still hasn't measured, so I haven't placed the tile order. And contractor is preparing a new draw request now that the rough-in inspections are done. I'll go by the credit union and get a check cut once I have the amount from her.

Translate to colloquial Spanish

Anyone out there with pretty good Spanish skills? My high school classes are long since forgotten.

I need a sign for my recycling can to stop the construction workers from putting their lunch trash in there. (Probably will also need to get a plastic bag to line the real outside garbage can--normally I just move the bag of kitchen garbage out to it and don't use a liner.) Does 'Ninguna Basura' say what I want? The whole sign says:

Clean Recyclables Only
No Trash or Garbage
--
Ninguna Basura



While I'm at it, does my sign for the bedroom door translate properly?

Do Not Enter
Cats Inside
--
No Entrar
Gatos Adentro

More of Friday's activity

So, after the sheetrock delivery, I decided to get my bicycle out (first time since winter, I'm afraid) and ride around the neighborhood. Before I got out of the garage, Betsy (the contractor) and Mary (her office help, and the wife of a husband-and-wife tile setting operation) showed up to measure for tile, measure for cabinets, and oops! forgot the draw request they'd prepared.

the cleaning crew, the errand list, etc...Collapse )
Then it was home, then next door to get briefed on the supper arrangements. Sister-in-law bought 3 types of sausages, shrimp, and veggies for our usual 'Low Country Boil'--except we grill everything instead of boiling it. She then headed off with 2 kids for T-ball, and the remaining child and I moved to my house to play 10 Days in the USA. Then moved back to her house with Scrabble, so I could start cooking while playing. If the game hadn't been good, I might have had supper a little farther along when everyone else arrived, but we still ate reasonably close to our regular time.
