There's Water In The Pool!

Well, today is July 2, almost exactly two months after I wrote this: Lazy Summer Days, and now, the pool is ready for a swim! It's just in time because we planned a 4th of July party this Saturday for family. I'm really pleased with every phase of the work. Because we live on a fairly large piece of land, and it's raw hill-country, there is still a lot of work to do to make things look like the picture in my head. But, now we can cool off after the work!

You know, there's always those "over-the-budget" costs that come along when you do any type of remodeling work. Well, here's one we didn't think of...because we are in a drought, we have to buy water, 12,000 gallons to be exact! All of a sudden I'm feeling sort of politically incorrect about having a pool. I'm sure I'll get over it soon......
