Pool build – day 8

I hope you each had a lovely Thanksgiving! Ours was different. We visited Steve's family in Moore, OK, on Wednesday night. We visited my mom and my sister, who was still in the hospital, on Thanksgiving. And then we drove home and built fence. We ate our turkey dinner on Friday which was odd, but not bad.

I'm showing you our trash containers – not photogenic but it's where they live. I spent a few hours on Friday moving wheelbarrows full of that red sand you can see there. I'm so glad that I don't have to do that on a daily basis.

Steve built a lovely gate. The hinges are self-closing (for safety) and they work like a charm.


Steve devised a way for me to hang my bird feeder so that I can fill it from the yard and then move it out over the alley. That way the squirrels can't get to it and the bird seed falls in the alley, not next to the pool – but I can still see the birds at the feeder from my studio window. The design needs a little tweaking, but it's going to work really well.
