Friday List

We BOTH have 4 days off this weekend!  Such a rarity.  🙂  It means, however, that my Friday list is not my own.

This Friday is the opening day for one of my favorite local farmers’ markets – Stonington.  It is supposed to be rainy and dull, and local is a euphemism for “in my County, but an hour away” and A doesn’t really enjoy farmers’ markets, so I will hold off on going to that for another week or two.

I desperately need to pot the pansies I bought.  As pretty as they look in the 6 packs on the doorstep, I know they will look prettier in the pots. I can do that in the rain…

I can knit in the rain…

I can start laundry in the rain…

I can begin prepping for the pool in the rain (although, I would rather do it on a cool cloudy day than a rainy one).  Last week we bought a new pool for me, a replacement for the one that met its demise last fall. This one is deeper – 4 feet! and wider – 20 feet! so I need to expand my circle of rock-less sand in the yard.  I hope it won’t be too terrible a job. Like the expanded circle will be over the only bit that has no giant boulders under it.  I can dream….  I would love to have the new pool set up and commence filling it before the weekend is over.  It is killing me that I am missing all this rain for help filling it.

This might be the whole list, as we have 4 days in which to get the usual chores done, and A will be there to help with them.

But I might also find time to get up into the craft room/disaster area to get ready for when dear friend Crimson Crow comes over to play “Clean Sweep” with me, and help me sort out, clean up, and TOSS until it is neat and organized up there. If I am brave enough, I will post before and after photos. But it might be weeks before there is an “after”. And photos of “before” might be too scary for me.

  1. Congratulation on the new pool. If the weather pattern continues it will fill up the pool for you and we won’t have a fire season.

    1. lol – you are right! the prep is going slowly, I am moving a rock pile that I made when I cleared for the last pool. Had I been thinking, I wouldn’t have put it so close to the pool…

    1. it was a small soft sided one, and the drain developed a leak, where I could not patch it. So I am upgrading a bit – steel frame to hold up the soft sides, and I wanted a deeper one. This is 48 inches deep, but the only one thay had that deep is 20 feet wide. I think the old one was 14 or feet. Lots of digging ahead of me! I won’t get it all done this weekend, but I have to keep thinking I will or it will never get done. 🙂
