A little nervous about that as I haven't tried this grout before.
Now that comment begs a question that has yet to be answered. What type of grout are you talking about?

I was outside fairly early this morning, and the moon and Jupiter were fairly close together. They will still be fairly close tomorrow morning right before sunrise if you want to take a look.

No tripod for this shot, so hand held on full auto. I hope Jupiter shows up - top left side.

Well, all my fretting was for naught as the grouting went very well.

This stuff is nothing at all like your usual grout. Easy to put on, and then just one wipe and that's it...other than some small cleanup.

Lunch was on the top deck as usual when the weather is like this (fantastic!) and I had a pair of loons keeping me entertained while I was eating.

Can you see this little guy? Hard to spot him amongst all the debris that blew into the pond with the big windstorm.

While I was down working in the J garden today, I noticed just how tall this new plant had grown to be. I couldn't even reach to the top of it standing on my toes, so it's at least 8 feet high.

I stole a little time this afternoon cutting some pavers to go around a curve in one of the pathways.

I love it, that is a great shot especially without the tripod. Cloud cover again tonight here, this morning heavy fog.

Could you give us a clue where the little guy is in the pond?

The counter tops came out beautiful Keith. Nice job!

I'm probably way off, but is there a frog in the upper right corner of the picture?

How tall was the bamboo (?) when you planted it?

Thanks Barb...that grout was so easy to work with I couldn't believe it. So one more fairly big job is now finished.

Now on to the plumbing and propane so I can do some cooking in here.

I can't remember how big that bamboo was when I put it in, but it was done earlier this year. That new shoot, which is the tall one, probably has been there for about 4 or 5 months. As more shoots grow, they tend to get bigger and bigger each time a new one comes up. I think the previous shoots were about 5 feet.

Yep, I see its eyebubs now. Did you say what kind of grout you used, if you did I missed it some how, if not, what kind was it?
