Summertime At The Pool
We've visited this quiet gator pool before, but never via video, and I thought you might like a brief glimpse of the place in motion.
Not a lot of motion of course, ... unless you're one of the countless dragonflies cruising this pool. The juvenile gators seem pretty content to just do their floating log imitation, conserving energy, while waiting for the gator equivalent of the pizza delivery guy to show up.
The big gator was nowhere to be seen again, so I stayed back away from the pool's edge.
You don't want to wind up like one of those zebras at the African waterhole if you know what I mean.
On the home (mine, not the gators) front:
The living room remodeling continues ... with a minimum of fauxpasnicity.
The basil paint is on the walls. Valspar paint is pretty amazing stuff. Good enough that one coat might have done it, but I'm not a one coat guy.
The wainscoting is up except for where it has to wait until I trim the windows and entry. I'm getting those pieces today.
The wall that will be completely panelled in T&G pine is partially clad. I'm picking up more of that paneling today.
So far, the materials have come in at about $300, but that will rise after today's visit to Lowes.
Of course all the labor is free.
Tomorrow is Wordless Wrensday again, so you will be able to check on the nestlings progress if you slide back over here.
