The cement truck has been back several mornings in a row (6am) pumping concrete up to our backyard.

We now have stairs...

And the slab for the paved area beside the pool, and the rock feature edging...
Obviously none of this is finished! Nothing is anywhere near finished. Sigh. But at least it's a bit further along than just a hole in the ground.

Only other news around here is the heatwave. Over 40C several days in a row. I stay inside as much as possible, but still feel ill from the heat and humidity. Hard to sleep. We're supposed to have a few cooler days now before it heats up again.


  1. Glad to see they're making progress on your pool...
    But I'll trade heat for cold any day - just returned from quick week in U.K. getting my MIL settled in nursing home. She's very ill (cancer) but I am hopeful now that she'll be getting decent care, she'll be with us a while longer.
    Hubby has blocked himself off for family leave for rest of the month but will be able to do some remote work via the wonders of the Internet.

  2. Sorry to hear about your MIL, my own mother died from cancer two years ago. She was ready to go though, didn't want to be kept alive in that state, so went quickly at the end.
