Mr. T our pool guy came over at nine in the morning. It took him two hours from taking off the pool cover and to put all the screws and solar panel and heater. He has to make sure that everything is working excellent before he leaves. He also works by himself. My husband also helps a bit. I asked him if we are the first pool he opened. He said he opened three pools already. Mr. T is a very quite guy. He charges my husband $130 to open our pool.

We like Mr. T’s job. He always did an amazing job opening our pool. We will see him in October when he closes our pool. We want to say thank you to Mr. T for opening our pool. My kids are blessed that we have our own pool. We also invite friends to come over and join the fun in our pool. I cannot wait to bring my friends and their families this summer and we all have a blast.

Our awning is installed last Monday


I forget to tell my wife that the awning will installed last Monday. She already figures it out as she saw the awning on the ground. Our awning is from the company called Kohler’s. One of my wife’s friend is working in this company too. it is even ironic that her friend sews our awning many years ago.

Why do we need the awning? We need the awning to keep our patio cover. We can relax after swimming with the sun blocking us. It is an awesome protection from the sun rays. The house also is not really warm. it keeps the family room cool. If we do not install our awning, it is very excruciating hot outside. There is no coverage for your body. We know that we love the sun but awning is the perfect protection under the sun.

We are ready for the summer though we have to wait for a while. Our pool also will open this weekend. We are all set for the summer. I am sure that the water is still very cold. We can wait until the warm days are coming everyday and the family will enjoy the pool and relax in the patio under the awning that protects us from the sun rays.

Saving electricity by drying the clothes outside

I was making something for my son’s golf. I was asking y wife if she can help me. She said she will when she is done eating and cleaning the dishes. My wife was about to come outside and help me. Our boy neighbor came. I was actually surprise to see him. He did help me with my golf project.

My wife saw that our young neighbor came so she did not help me. She indeed do our kids laundry. She did not use the dryer to dry the clothes. Instead she hangs the clothed over the pool fence. This way we can save electricity. Recently our electric bill is high.

My wife does not mind drying the clothes over the pool fence. She did loads of laundry. She even make fun of me to build an extension for the fence so she has enough space to dry the clothes.

It rained a bit which makes the wife sad. She does not want her laundry gets soak from the rain. Surprisingly, the rain stop and she remove all the clothes over the fence. They all dried up now. It just needs for my wife to fold them.

How about you? How do you save your electricity?
