It's Almost Time....

After spending a warm day painting the pool,
two coats....

Notice anyone missing from this picture??
Ha, ha, ha....

And then letting it "cure" for 7 days....

And then let the hose run in it for 3 days straight, during cold, rainy, windy weather, with the solar blanket on to try and catch any heat from the sun....our pool is now ready!
We just need it to warm up so we can use it!

This has to be done about every 3 years. It is a really old cement pool, but the kids enjoy it and it makes for great summertime entertainment!
Note: We are still "tweaking" our yard, so any messes you see won't be there for long!


  1. Hi Lisa,
    I just discovered your blog and have to say I love it. The colors in your garage sale post were so warm and comforting. I'm looking forward to reading more about your great old house.

    We're in Californa and just had a pool put in last fall. The kids started swimming early this month. It was too cold for me but I checked yesterday and the water temp is up to 80 already. No heater, just really hot weather for May and a good 12 hours of full sun each day. Hope your water warms up quick!

  2. We've opened our pool too. Ours has a liner, but after 13 years it's really faded, so we're going to bite the bullet and order a new liner this maybe be thankful that yours can be painted...even though I'm sure it's quite a job.
    It might actually be warm enough here this weekend to get in :)

  3. What mess? Your yard looks great to me!

  4. I am guessing you were supervising and making cold lemonade. Smart lady! Enjoy your pool. I think I would like the Arizona summer more if I had one. Take a dip for me! Hugs, Bobbi Jo

  5. HA.. did you all leave a path out... looks like you trapped yourselves! It will warm up eventually and you will have plenty of time to enjoy.

  6. Just blog hopping tonight and enjoyed reading your blog...I am posting on our Disney trip so hope you will stop by. Also, the June giveaway starts today...all comments left in June will be in the drawing for the "June Card Box"! You will have to go down a few posts to read about the monthly giveaway.


I would enjoy hearing from you!
