Originally, it was to be sure that no critters ended up in there over night, or to get some air after dressing for work (we don't have central a/c and the house tends to be QUITE warm as a result). But it's become something I look froward to each morning. I LOVE the way the pool looks at that time of day.
It's so calm and crystal clear. Of course, I have to send a huge thanks to Jim, for endlessly working on it. :-)
I took this picture this morning before I left for work. I love how you can clearly see the gradual slant of the bottom, heading into the deep end. Cool.
Oh, and hip-hip-hooray for California! I'm sure this is only one step in the right direction, but it's a pretty darn exciting step!!!
P.S. I almost forgot!!! Today is the 3rd anniversary of our parakeet, Junior's passing. :-(
He was an AWESOME bird, and even though some people don't think of parakeets as a 'real' pet - he was the one that would have made them believers!!! He (and Buddy, his cage-mate) used to fight with one another in an attempt to be the first one to the front of the cage each day so they could say hello to us.
While I don't miss cleaning their cage :-), from time to time I still miss hearing their constant, happy chirping throughout the house. R.I.P. Junior!!!
Junior is the blue one, Buddy is the green one....
