The New Swimmin' Hole!

For me, I can't believe that it is the middle of June and I don't know where the time has gone.   So many projects going on here at My Wonderful World and too little time!

We decided this last winter we would put our pool in.   This was something I have wanted to do for 10 years or more but just didn't have the house build, the time, and mostly the money.  Things to get expensive but there is nothing better than being able to finish a project without going into debt.  

The completed project....
I had to accept that this project was larger than anything I had the skill set for.  We began in January looking for a pool contractor and used Campbell Pool and Spa out of Knoxville.   I must admit and they also we did have a few hurdles, but finally the project was completed and Campbell and Cindy Dotson has been a dream to work with.  They both suggested that we use Baquacil for water treatment.   Nice, since you don't smell like chlorine when you get out of the water.  

After pool installation, it was time to contact our builder and he and his great crew installed our deck.  Once again, the 32' deck was far beyond our construction expertise.  We needed his crew to complete the the project since we were having three "pool parties" in June no matter what the temperature of the water was.  Things warmed up nicely and we have been enjoying a constant 76F water temperature.   I know some think that is a little cool, but when you have been sitting in the sun...that temperature feels so nice.  

After all the projects, it is time to get back to the kitchen and dream up some new treats to share with you.   Got a couple in mind that I served at the pool parties.  Until then.....

Bon Appétit and Enjoy
