Our backyard is quite small, and in the winter it seems like a waste to fill so much of it with something we can't use, but oh! the joy of swimming in the summer makes it all worthwhile.
This is our twelfth summer with our pool, and we have learned ever so much about pool maintenance. The main thing is that plain old grocery store bleach works just as well as chlorine and costs a whole lot less.
I did go to the post office today with Suzanne's and Nathan's wall hangings, since I didn't have their addresses on Tuesday when I went. It's quite thrilling to send something across the ocean!
Have a great weekend, and come join me for a swim.
