Already here and already destructive. This is a photo of our pool before the summer came, when the weather was kind of coolish. So–you know–around early February. Not perfect, but I kind of thought the one good thing about all this unseasonable heat would be early swimming. We began to treat the water, and things were looking fine. Then the heat poured on.
And created a green pool of horror. I’m pretty sure the Loch Ness Monster is vacationing with us. Who knows what’s under there? The beloved took a water sample to our trusty pool supply store, and they’ve given us a cocktail to return the pool to fitness. I can’t wait.
I also can’t wait for the shower door to arrive today. I imagine we won’t be able to use it until tomorrow-ish, but oh, the joy of a functioning bathroom. I may have taken the convenience of such a thing for granted–before. Never again. Because I’m pretty disappointed when I head to the sink to wash my hands. Only to discover a still topless cabinet!
It’s cleaner in the room now. The cabinets aren’t covered in paper. The floor’s clean. We’ve put the paint cans away. If we ever sell this place, people will stroll in, stampede through, and then get to the bathroom and want to move in. Seriously, the nicest room in the house. I’m a little sad for the other bathrooms.
Gonna shake off the yoke of irrational melancholy and get to work. I wrote 2036 words yesterday, and I need at least that many today! Happy Tuesday to you!
