YUCK !!!!!!!!!!!

Took the cover off of the pool this past weekend! YUCK, was the word for the day!

 Not sure what happened this winter but I have never seen the pool this bad. Could not imagine what in the world happened but no time to stand and wonder, had to clean it up.

 Taking a closer look we realized that it was not the water but dirt on the bottom. Now how in the world that much dirt got in the pool is a mystery.

Out came the long hose and the vacuum head and Dennis got busy. It is a one man job trying to vacuum the bottom but he did a good job and once again after a few hours it started to look like a pool!

Ready for Summer! 
We worked several hours in the yard and around the pool and by mid to late afternoon we were done. Hot and tired my husband turned and looked at me and told me that there was just one thing left to do, and with that he stripped down to his undies and........................................... you guessed it............ he jumped in the pool!

It the temperature of the water  was a balmy 56 degrees!  Burrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!  
I had no time to grab a camera!  What a Kodak moment!  He did not stay in there long......... but it sure was a fun ending to a hard day.

Life is for living............ laugh and enjoy.

THEN got up the next morning and what did we find?  A copperhead snake in the pool. He was swimming around looking for a way out. I think the June bugs thought he was an island and they were climbing on!
He was fished out and off came his head!  He was only about 12" long, wonder where Mama is???????

He is a dead snake now!

I was going to take a blog break this next few weeks of May  and the month of June but have changed my mind. I love to blog and am going to get back into it.......this is where my heart is and I miss so many of you.

We cleaned out part of our storage unit today. We have been paying on it for 10 YEARS!!!!!!!!  That is crazy. There are some things in there that I have not seen since we put them there. Now have a dozen of large boxes are sitting in my shop.   Our plan is a garage sale the 10 of June. We are hoping to make $2000.00 and then build our new potting shed/ work shop.  BUT there is a lot of work to do before then.

Hope every one is good and having a wonderful weekend.  I will go now and visit some of you before bedtime.
