Dirty Job

Cleaning out the pond had to be one of the grossest projects we've ever done. Shoveling muck and tadpoles and fully grown bullfrogs that Miss Kay would be happy to fry up was so disgusting at times. Especially when I'd clear out some reeds or hyacinth roots and see some slimy eyes looking at me.  

But the results were mostly worth it. 

Pool Makeover

We have needed to replaster the pool since forever and this year we decided that instead of going on a family vacation, we'd bite the bullet and make some pool repairs and replaster. We are going to get every bit of enjoyment we can from the back yard this year.

This is what the pool looked like last year.
