So, it’s 2022. Is that swimming pool finished? Of course not, but as the daylight grows stronger, it gets closer and closer.
Today the intrepid pool guys braved biting winds and chilly temps to finally finish with the landscaping. They had a wheelbarrow and a bucket, but filled in all the gaps at last.
It really looks complete now. The Pool of Dreams looks like a dream oasis in a desert with all the natural rock.
In addition to the rocks, the guys labeled all the valves, installed the thing that will eventually dispense salt, and got us our remote control.
They also tried to do work on the fire pit, but their drill wasn’t long enough. And that’s what’s left: the hot stuff. I was happy to hear that we are on the list at the propane company to get hooked up. I’m dreaming of a hot tub in winter!
Lee took advantage of the fence being open so the pool truck could get in to bring dirt in to smooth out behind the pool. Progress!
So, between working hard and getting stuff done, things are good, except my favorite ring fell apart! When I woke up this morning, the beautiful inlay was gone. I’m sad about that. Maybe I’ll find it one day.
