This summer marks the twentieth year of this magical place.
There was an infrastructure fail that allowed about half the new water to sneak off down to the creek, but we got it fixed and refilled. I don't want to think about the upcoming water bill, but I will be working a little overtime in the upcoming weeks - and it will be worth it!
We moved into the house and before changing anything else, Jim made this happen. There had been a small financial windfall as a result of a life-changing, on the job injury he suffered and he decided that this was the best use of a good chunk of the settlement. We never regretted that decision.
Yesterday, I went in for the first time. For fresh from the ground water, it was refreshing, not freezing. I have to remember to bring my hat down there and am shopping for a floaty. Also have to set some time limits. Nah, that's crap!
Every time I get in, it's like church and I have Jimmy to thank for it.
