It’s getting hot in here…

Temperatures have reached the 90s this week. Great pool weather! Which reminds me I need to get an updated pic of the pool to send you. We really like our little arrangement. H said he sits at works and dreams about being in the pool. The flowers are coming along, a bit too slowly for…
