*affiliate links to followI've been sitting here this morning listening to and watching the weather report. I don't think it's as bad as they're saying it's going to be-- we are waiting on, what's now called Tropical DEPRESSION BILL!
We've had rain about 4 hrs. Fortunately where we live our little community sits on the highest elevation in our county. So- NOT a flood plain. Though we do get saturated and waterlogged, it runs off pretty fast. I can't help but think how good all this rain is for the underground springs and natural aquifers AND MY GARDEN!
We are still a few days out from the official start of summer- it's an odd season this year!
Lots of rain, a late garden;
…and we haven't even officially opened the pool, yet.
We usually have it opened by now. It’s an above ground pool—and after almost 16 years of summers—it is in need of some upgrades. I generally try to shop early for all our pool supplies and when I do-- I shop In The Swim for everything from opening to closing the pool.
Right now, the Littles are chomping at the bit to get out there and swim. So we’ve had to use a patch on a pin hole in the liner.
This year it looks like we might be needing to replace the liner if so, we’ll get it from In The Swim—we’ve bought one from them years ago and it was a good deal!
We’ve also replaced the sand in the filter…and now we’re just waiting on BILL and the rain! It never fails—just when we think we have the water just right, the rain comes and creates a set back! Clouds and cooler temps—make it uncomfortable to swim.
Unless you don’t mind blue lips like the kids! KIDS just don’t care. All they want to do is swim, swim, swim! I can’t wait to get out there and put some FUN! into my workout!
‘Til next time, bring on the FUN!
* It’s true I may be paid by In The Swim , but the thoughts and opinions, along with any extra …is all mine!
