It's Always Sumthin'.......
We had a lobster feast on Friday after finding them very much on sale at the market. They steam them there and put them on sale......sometimes.
They we delicious!
That was the best part of the week end. We had torrents of rain all day Friday. That evening both pond and pool were full to the brim! When I went out early Saturday with Winter the pool was down to the inlet. Aaaaarrrrgh! After careful inspection, which included crawling around under the deck, we realized that the gasket on the junction between the pool exterior and the little pipe inlet had disintegrated. The was definite evidence of a leak, plus a lot of ground even soggier than other areas that had been inundated with rain. The fix was relatively easy....take everything apart, make a new gasket from pond liner scraps and replace.....but not fun. I can't complain; the pool is almost thirty years old and has needed few repairs.
Fortunately we have had so much rain this year that there is no problem with refilling the pool. I do it slowly at a rate of about 250 gal. per day. It's no strain on the well, but also gives the pool a bit of time to warm up.
We've been clearing sassafras every week. It's extremely invasive here and serves no good purpose....not even for firewood.
It's cloudy today with sun coming this afternoon with more rain expected tomorrow. I'll be spending more time in my studio...yes!
Enjoy the week ahead and, as always, thanks for stopping by...........*s*
