It appears that smurfs attacked your home with snow, and left behind their blue shoes.

2 cents.

Hmm, looks like too much copper in the bronze mix for them baby shoes.

I wore a big ol' stupid grin all day. Now I'm going to bed happy because tomorrow....I get *water*.

Yay!!!!!!!! So happy for you Banana. It's been a long time coming and you've been so patient. Please do post pictures, can't wait to hear how you love the blue granite. Did you ever find a jump rock? We did not, unfortunately, but I'm over it : )

Sounds like you are being very patient with an incredibly slow pool build! What part of the country are you in?

Thanks everybody for your kind words. We actually had people over this weekend SWIMMING. That said, we're still a landscape/construction zone. I'll put some pictures up of where we're at.

marta p: Yes, we found a jump rock. It's perfect and will, hopefully, look amazing once properly landscaped.

womanowned: VERY long process. However, I'm in Michigan so it's not quite fair of me to count Nov - March. Then in May, our Great Lake State had a record amount of rain which stalled us further. We're on clay so even when the rain stopped, the trenches needed to be pumped out, etc.

I was patient because at the time my build was stalled, the rest of the country was experiencing devasting floods and tornados. Whenever I started to whine, I realized that my problems were small in the grand scheme of things. (I didn't necessarily share those feelings with the pool builder, though ;-)

Once he got rolling, he rolled. Now we're trying to tie up landscaping.
