Daily Journal - May 30 & 31, 2006
Tuesday, May 30, 2006 - Today, we continued our
work on the POOL. It's up and running. We finished at
8 p.m. last night. It's not quite clear yet. Okay, so it's
about the same color as this green on the page... It
just takes time.
Since it's getting close to the last day of school, I was
going to put that picture of Jarrett with the Mohawk and
Chad walking together, and then Andrew, Charlie and
Cody are walking behind them - after they got off the
bus on the last day of school, but I couldn't find it. My
time is running out this morning because I have to go
into town (yes, I am a farmer) and get some supplies.
Mostly, stuff for the pool. We love the pool. Gotta go.
See ya later, djd

When I planted these poppies, the boys were still alive.
Andrew is going down the slide, Chad is in the middle
and Jarrett has something in his hand... fun in the pool -
those were the days!
Wednesday, May 31, 2006 - Yesterday, the new German iris
bloomed - it's pinkish and I love it. So gorgeous. This is the
one I got when Donna and I went into Painter's Palette (an
awesome plant nursery). It's out there with all those purple
irises. I'm going to have to dig up some of those iris and plant
them at Avis and Bergy's house. After all, purple is Kylie's
favorite color (inside joke). Purple and white - fight, fight!!
The pool has "turned." Amazing! It only took two days to go
from yukky to slightly cloudy but NOT green. We're going to get
the heater hooked up and then I can swim whenever I want.
My problem is that it has to be 80 degrees before I'll get in,
otherwise, I start turning blue. No, seriously, I do.
I have to go out and vacuum the pool. The oil in my new tractor
has to be changed. I wonder if I can figure out how to do that?
German iris - it's hardy, gorgeous and pink!

graduation party on Sunday. I took my sunglasses off.
