The pathway you see goes from the master bedroom down to the pool equipment,or to the pool.Someday(hopefully sooner than later) there will be doors from the bedroom out to the pool.The window opening that's there now is meant for 6' sliding glass doors,so it should just be a matter of taking one out and popping one in.R-i-g-h-t............
But then,what home project goes exactly just as planned?There are those so called bumps in the road that just make you wanna live in an apartment.....................
And we're still "discussing" where the smoker and turkey fryer should go.Grrrrr..................

I guess God,or the Cosmic Muffin,or whatever you want to call her,decided we needed a day of rest.
But we're soooo close to the end!!
The SkateBoard Park is no more.Quiet your tears people.You'll get over it.
It has now become Juan's WaterWorld.
This is it being filled last evening.
Notice the rain drops.Grrrr...................Actually,(knocking on wood,fingers and toes crossed as I write this),we think our repairs worked.It seems they worked well enough,that with all the rain we've had today,Jon had to pump water out of the pool!Who'd have ever thunk that?!
Hopefully(good Lord willing and the creek don't rise!),the BumperBoat Ride and the WaterGuns will be operational tomorrow.We're planning on having the grand re-opening of Juan's Poolside Cantina,on the 4th of July.

We're only gonna go halfway,then see if this is gonna work.Yep the water looks a little funky,right now.That's well water for ya.Once,it's full,the water will be tested,balanced,and get whatever it needs.
With any luck,the next picture you'll see will be of a pool filled with sparkling,glistening water.

After much pumping,mopping up and fans blowing,this is what we managed to get to.All afternoon,we dodged the bullet with the clouds and thunderstorms.Alot of praying to whomever(thanks Mom!),we stayed dry.So,it's ok if it gets wet,now,tho we would prefer it not to.At least unitl tomorrow,when we hope to start filling.Then we pray it holds water.
And,hopefully,Juan's Poolside Cantina will have it's grand reopening next week-end!
Much thanks to Erich and co. for all the help!(We bought Erich a new gas grill for helping out.....)

We are now under a severe thunderstorm warning and tornado watch! Grrrrrr......................
Needless to say,prayers are being said in Lutz,right now.

We need to fill it in with more dirt and more mulch.But the idea is there.
Jon is finally geting the point of where I want to go with this and is in agreement that it looks "pretty good." High compliment coming from him......
We have added more landscape lighting(solar,by the way.Trying to reduce our carbon footprint...).Please excuse the mess in the back.That will be burned(sorry,Al Gore,but it is all natural ingredients)at some future date.
Time to get more fill dirt and gravel.Just wanna get this done!!
Saturday, June 7, 2008
The SkateBoard Park is all patched(and those patches have set up),been swept out,vacuumed,and ready for pressure washing,tomorrow. Yep-that's Jon sweating his ass(which he doesn't have much of)off.We should own stock in Gatorade,after today.
The gas grill has been moved back.We still have to move the charcoal grill,the smoker and the turkey fryer.Actually,the smoker and turkey fryer may go somewhere else in the yard.They create way too much mess to be on the Great Wall.
Tomorrow,will be the "Attack of the Killer Power Washer."
to be continued........................

The man eats like a horse and has absolutely no ass.What's up with that?It just doesn't seem fair somehow..................
