Memorial Day Around The Pool

It's hard to believe the change in our backyard in just one year.   We love it it.  There is still a ton of work to be done, some hardscaping, storage, fencing and then redoing the patio furniture and etc, etc, etc.  You get the idea, tons left to do, but we love where we are now and so thankful for what we have.

June 8th last year I did a post "The Pool Is Finished". You can see the last part of the construction.

I feel so blessed that this is where we are today.

We are going to have a quiet weekend, so I am sure we will work in the yard a little, swim a little and of course eat a lot.


 An afternoon snack is always welcome.  Crackers, sausage, carrots and dip with some wonderful pear lemonade.  I've had these placemats for a few years, they are perfect for outside.  Little pockets hold the silverware and napkins so nothing blows away.  I also really like my new plastic dishes and stems.  No danger of breakage and glass in the pool.





We'll probably BBQ for dinner and then maybe another dip in the pool with a glass of wine.


What are your plans for the weekend?

  10. Hi Marty,
    Your pool and patio look so nice. I see you have three umbrellas. Guess you need the shade with the heat you get. We're having lots of rain and high humidity. Pray we have a quite hurricane season.
    Everything on your wish list will come in good time.

  17. very pretty Marty....and there is nothing like relaxing around the pool whether it be with family or just hubby. We have never regretted our move to the West Coast of Florida 8 odd years ago. Your pool area is inspirational and just lovely, and I have similar placemats but yours are adorable.
