All work has come to a halt, probably until next fall. After the last hail storm, we are having to reroof both the house and the garage, so extra monies going there. Also, because of the sprinkler system, Keith wants to wait until fall to tackle that.. so hopefully we can resod then.

The pool is finally done. It looks so blue and so nice. It was 97 yesterday and I had to work... Darn.
Got the new landscape timbers in. We will probably wait a few weeks to start the dirtwork and leveling out the front half. Keith is talking about a terraced bed at the end of the pool, (about a 4 foot drop). I cannot visualize it yet, but I think he is still in the planning stage. When he gets it set in his head, I'll have him draw it out for me. A terraced bed there would be nice, but it is sure going to be a mixture of sunlight and shade.

Well the pool guys finally showed up and the new liner is going in. This is going to be so good looking.
Keith and I were talking last night and he is hoping by fall we can get the front and back sprinkler system in and then bring in several loads of dirt to level the back. He even talked about sodding. I love this man! He's talking my dreams.
