Either it rained hard in Florida last night or .....
they`re filling the pool.
Ok, I see the hose at the one end so I guess someone left it on all night on purpose.
The thing is with this pool build from afar, I like to fret about it.
And, it`s not been without it worries. From the first week with the Inspector changing all the elevations and making them raise it by 6``, to the entire 30`foot wide patio at the bottom having to be taken up because of a misplaced drain, and then the pathway not lining up to the gate by nearly a foot and having to be redone, I`ve lost confidence.
Then I discover that the coping I selected was not recorded properly on the spec sheet. And there`s nothing I can do as I signed off on the spec sheet.
In my head I know I picked something else (I can visualize the exact spot on the shelf of samples my pick was sitting on) and I would have never done coping the same brick as the patio, which is kinda like painting your walls blue and the trim.
But, the SPEC sheet with my signature is carved in stone (pun intended) and the coping is a mixed blend of 3 colors that I love on the patio but really dislike on the coping. It doesn`t work well with the Mexican tile but it`s done now and I have to live with it. And besides, there`s a lot more going on that should have my attention than a stupid pool.
My brother and his family in New Jersey are all Ok. My pregnant daughter in law and her family who are currently in NJ are all ok, but without power and apparently charging phones at a local mall. DIL and her sister are to travel home today to Montreal but can`t get gasoline yet.
Close to my heart this week is a special someone having a stem cell transplant in New Jersey under the care of a brilliant team of people.
You can save a life by signing up to be a stem cell donor...please check it out.
And.......I`m kinda wondering, given that it`s Friday, if anyone from the pool company will be stopping by to shut off that hose......
