What a great weekend. Temperatures on Saturday were in the mid 70's and yesterday it reached 78 yesterday without a cloud in the sky. I live not too far from a regional airport (usually single engine planes) and the planes were out all weekend. it isn't bad having them fly overheard because their engines are fairly quiet.
It was a tiring weekend though. My pool has been such a problem. It was opened on Wednesday. Not ever having a pool of this magnitude I didn't realize that as long as the water isn't frozen you should be shocking the pool every month. Well, the pool was full of worms and dirt and was green. I have the pool blue, but getting the dirt out has been one big headache. I think I vacuumed most of the worms out, but the problem is that my filters keep getting clogged. I think I have cleaned the filters at least 8 times this weekend. It is not a fun task. I am so disheartened with this pool right now. It seems like it will take me another two weeks to get the pool cleaned. I didn't realize how much work can be with a pool if it wasn't taken care of all winter. Not that I even knew you had to take care of a pool during the winter. I sure wish the previous owners would have given me some advice.
Other than the pool, the grass got cut, the raspberries were weeded, the weed preventer was scattered throughout the gardens and the potatoes were planted.
I am so glad that the weather is cooperating. I just wish it could have started earlier so I can get the pool clean. Ugh, what a mess. For now I am just letting the dirt and stuff settle to the bottom and vacuum and brush and vacuum and brush and vacuum and brush. Ugh.
