Thank you! Still a few things we want to do to it in the spring...pool decking of some sort and some other method, besides umbrellas, for shade.

Well, seeing that this thread popped back up, here are a few holiday pool pics!

Here is a pic of Christmas lights strung along the top of the pool fence.


I love how the lights reflect on the water.




Not closing up the pool and winterizing it for the winter months is a new experience for us. In Maine, it was necessary to lower the water level, clear the pipes and cover the pool with a heavy pool cover, but here in Arizona, the pools just stay open year round. Our pool is not heated, so it's really too cold to swim in it now. We were swimming until about mid-October, and I'm thinking it'll be mid-March before the water will be warm enough to swim again.

I'm happy to say that maintenance on the pool has been minimal. The in-floor cleaning system does an excellent job of keeping the pool very clean. It is much easier to maintain a pool in Arizona than it is in Maine!

Merry Christmas!

Every time I see your signature, I see where it says "home of the cards", and I always think you're in Arizona. We are loving the winter weather! Although, tonight I'm a bit homesick for Maine! They are getting their first big snowstorm tonight and tomorrow. I do miss seeing the snow drifting down, and being all warm and cozy in the house. And I miss a white Christmas. The feeling will pass quickly, though. I know too well the reality of all that snow and cold!

Thank you, Buckalew11! Seeing the holidays through the eyes of our grandkids is one of life's greatest joys! They are every bit as sweet as they look! Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Not liking this and we have a another 2-5 on the way for tomorrow afternoon!


Merry Christmas and enjoy that warm weather for me!

Thanks, nhpooh! Yes, I heard all about the snow! I've talked to family in Maine and I've seen lots of photos on facebook pages. Also, heard lots of grumbling! Ha! Ha! And more to come! I always miss the snow when I first hear of the storms, but my homesickness doesn't last too long! I wouldn't mind a FEW days of snow and cold weather, but not a whole winter's worth.

Stay safe and warm!

Nope, we're St Louis Cards fans here.

We've been here over a year and the winter has been definitely the hardest for us. Enjoy the glorious weather for me!

Oh, I see! I've always thought it stood for the Arizona Cardinals! Maybe you've told me that before! Sorry if I forgot! Yes, we are enjoying the weather here. Low 70's today and always that wonderful sunshine!
