The beauty of Summer is even more fun when you have a pool. One drawback though, it is a pain in the behind to maintain. Good thing my husband is in charge of all that and I only have to do very little when it comes to the swimming pool. He is proud of himself for keeping the pool clean and clear so far since it has been opened. The water did get a little cloudy one time that got him worried. I had to look for a water clarifier while I was at the store. It was either a lot of people were getting chemicals for their pool or the stores didn't have on hand stock coz I could not find one. They did have a bunch of chemicals and stuff for the spa like spa filters, spa water clarifier, spa shock and so on and so forth. It was a good thing that our neighbor did have the clarifier he needed. For now, the water is crystal clear and ready to be enjoyed.
Giving our kitchen a mini makeover did make a big improvement. It got a new coat of paint which is Aloe Vera. Got rid of that awful wall paper that has been peeling off the wall. We also got a new kitchen counter and new flooring. It was such a hassle before we got the counter. I did not have a sink for almost 3 weeks. Imagine my joy when I finally had my sink back and I got a double sink, even better. At first I didn't like the new faucet that Ralph picked. But it grew on me and its better this way, it looks tidier and easier to clean. If I am not mistaken, it is a Grohe faucet that is getting more popular than the regular faucet. Its gives our kitchen a modern look. I am just glad that I have my kitchen back and hopefully it will still look the same after we get back from our upcoming vacation.
