Thanks for the comment on my blog. It is the only thing I can do right now if I cannot work. Why does the government make it so hard for some of us and others get it and do not need it? 4 hours ago
Hubby won't get in the pool unless the water temperature is 84 degrees or higher. We have a solar cover, but the Pro Pools place said if it is left on in the day time, it will cause an algae bloom. We left it on in the daytime.
They said it is to hold the heat in the water over night and should be removed or at least folded back off of the pool during the day. We didn't do that. We left it on until we wanted to swim and when we took it off, the water was green.
We still have it. My husband wants to get a leaf cover for the pool which will let water through, but catch most of the leaves and seeds from the neighbor's maple tree which is probably 60' tall and right by our fence. The limbs, leaves and seeds leave a mess for us to clean up. 2 days ago
My Wonderful Spark Friend !! Remember just because it is a Holiday Weekend doesn't mean you can't have a good time and stay on track... just watch be sure to weight the hamburger meat out to 3-4 ounces, layer it with plenty of veggies like lettuce, cucumbers, onions, radishes or your favorites!! Try adding some grilled vegetables to the list... Family BBQ's can be the greatest way to get your family on board to trying fresh grilled vegetables and "Yes" even grilled "Fruits"... Try gilled fruit and veggie kabobs... along with your favorite salsa. Even visit Chef Meg for some of her favorite recipes for grilling!!
"Memorial Day Weekend Blessings!!" Remember to Plan for those desserts to, no more than 1/8th of a slice if you put it on your tracker!! You should have plenty of room for it!! Let's be Happy with our choices, not sorry about it later! 2 days ago
It will take a while for the pool water to warm. It will be nice on these warm days to work outside and then to jump into the pool. The neighbors in back of us cut down a tree along the fence line which will allow for more sun to hit the pool.
With fishing and swimming, this should be a great summer. 2 days ago
