Tonight I cemented.

Not my teeth — I haven’t gone the false way yet!

Instead, the basement demanded help.  I have inserted some new duct work under a two foot section of the floor. 

The cement instructions require that not too much water is added.  Otherwise you decrease the strength of the cement and length the curing time.  I carefully measured in some water and added a bit more (sort of like cooking!!).  Then I trowelled in the mixture, filling in all the cracks.  I left the final topping just a few centimeters short of the floor surface.  I’ll add a final mixture of fine cement to level the floor.

Now, on to the next project — finishing off the basement decor.
