Today was such a gorgeous day. The sun was shining, the breeze was blowing, and the husband was working…..A friend of mine said in her blog, and I TOTALLY agree…that she loves work, as long as she is watching someone else do it!
Last summer, due to an unfortunate event, my son and I had to move our pools. Pools you ask? yes, I use swimming pools as a container garden. I do this for 2 reasons.
1….this is the biggie….our dirt is just awful. I think that our back yard was a dump at one point. While digging a 1 foot diameter hole this past week, my husband dug out a whole brick, 2 half bricks and a rock the size of his forearm. We have bad dirt!
The second reason is because I don’t want to have to till up soil. Lazy…..yes, I know, but there it is!
After the moving of the pools, grubs moved in. Today we fixed them. We, I use this term loosely, moved all the dirt out of the pools, put some window screen down, and put the dirt back.
Lest you think I am a total lazy bum…..I offer proof that I do indeed soil~~well, not really soil, I had on gloves~~my hands.
oops……you can’t see my beautiful gloves….here you go….
After we finished getting the dirt out of this pool, we moved it down to be with it’s friends.
Honey, aren’t you going to help me with this one?
I don’t think so….besides…..it is time for lunch! now back to work!!!
The boy arrived home from work early, just in time to help with the pink pool. The pink pool is mine…cause I like pink!
In goes the screen.
What is the daughter doing whilst I am busy cooking and the men are busy sweating???
How did you spend your Saturday?
