Playtime in the Pool

We are enjoying the little pool. Wishing we had put down the bed of sand to make the bottom smooth, as it seems to be compacting all the little clay balls into rocks.

Even Rei is enjoying the pool. She learned to perch on a boat cushion.

She does not seem to mind the dunking!

Holly seems to love the water, I think she thinks she is swimming. When she's in the water she kicks like a wild critter, but in her floating, shaded island she is relaxed.

Hot Weekend Work

This weekends project was to complete the flooring over the workbench-which is now done. By mistake, we got the heavier floor decking and boy, now we see we should have used the heavier stuff all throughout the loft. We can feel where the thinner stuff is giving a bit uncomfortably when walking around up there. Our plan is next spring when we run out of hay, to add another thin layer to beef up the previously laid floor. For now, the hay is going up.
Tim and Andy were on hand to help up move the hay that is left. The alfalfa went out to be stored in the pony barn.

Here you can see John's hay slide, which works incredibly well.

Here is John, cleaning up the dregs of last year's hay and pushing it down the slide.
