Cleaning Up

GrillLots of work around the house over the weekend... We finally got our pool area straightened out. First thing to get done was the concrete patio. After years of neglect, the concrete was covered with nasty black and green gunk - mostly mold and algae that needed a blast from the pressure washer to get rid of. It looks 100% better now. We also took the pool cover off, cleaned it off and put it away along with the water bags lining the edge that were supposed to keep the cover from falling into the pool. We situated the patio furniture and swept up around the patio as well. I also knocked down the rotting fence around the pool filter. I also fertilized the lawn and gave it a good soaking so it wouldn't burn out. The folks from Monster Sheds also stopped by to give us an estimate on a new shed. The one that came with the house is falling apart and it needs to come down before it falls down on its own. We're getting a 10' X 14' building in the corner of the property, with a ramp and a nice double barn door.

On Sunday, we went to Fortunoff. I really wanted a big grill, since I spend my spring and summer cooking most of my meals outside. Check out the pic - we got a great deal on this one, and I can't wait for it to arrive.

Next weekend, Craig is dropping off his Bobcat and I'm getting a dumpster to get rid of all the debris I'll create. The old shed needs to be demolished, plus I need to do a great deal of landscaping work (yanking out stumps and bushes, clearing out beds, digging up an old walkway, etc.)
