33 Years

Today is our 33rd anniversary. It's been fun and I hope the next 33 doesn't go so fast.

it's taking shape

What you are looking at is the cement pad with the electrical box.  This is where the heater etc. sits. On the right corner you can see that our lot goes down so a landscaper will have to put a retaining wall  because the pool sticks out of the ground at that end. 

The walls of the pool are metal, the steps down at the far end.  Steps built into the side to the right.  

On this end, underneath the metal plate is where the retractable liner will go.  There is cement poured all around the base on the outside and it is curing.  The gas line has been hooked up and nothing will be done until next week.

Thanks for stopping!

Fall Tree

I did some fall decorating this past weekend.
Brought out my Pewabic Pottery leaves and fell in love with them all over again.


Ginko Leaf

Some fall decorations in the foyer. 
The cool nights are great.
I see a few trees starting to turn color. 

Come back again.

Pool and Spa

We are getting a pool dug soon.  This is the area where it will be going. 

A 10 x 10 cement footer poured over on the left side and the spa will be put there.

The bulldozer just digging away.  It's hard to believe that a pretty pool will come of this.

More progress being made. 
It is going to be 18 x 40 feet.  The depth will be 3 feet to 4 1/2 feet.  I wasn't interested in diving, I wanted to swim, float and exercise.  It will be rectangular and the shallow end will have steps completely across.  I will add more pictures as progress is made. 

Thanks for stopping.
