I am obviously past May for this post, but I am still going to show just the month of May in the progress here. That way when I show June and the yard looks more finished, it will be such a surprise to everyone that we will all shout for JOY!!!!
And then we will JUMP for JOY!!!!
But we probably won't be able to jump into the pool by then.
Anyway, I digress...
I think the coping is gorgemous.
Oooh, a partial roof over the new patio area. Nice.
The next week the concrete guys were back so they could sandblast the deck area and make it look slightly different than the coping color. Here's Vince trying out his new look.
There is no sign of the pool man or his helpers. We haven't seen him for a couple of months and he isn't returning phone calls, so we are starting to worry whether or not this project will ever finish for summer swimming.
Hindsight wise, now that I'm in mid June (even though this post hasn't caught up,) I have come to grips with my company/family not being able to use the yard for this nice graduation weekend that we just spent together. I was quite riled up and upset at the beginning of June when I realized it wasn't going to happen and my hopes were dashed, but now I do in fact see and end in sight and I'm over it to a great extent.
Stand by for news. (name that commentator)
