Earth Day

In honor of Earth Day we drained and refilled our pool. And I've been running the air conditioner for three days.

Diane seriously I love your posts they crack me up. That pool looks like someone needs to come swim in it I think my next trip out there we will have to come take advantage for sure.....

try that crap in my neck of the woods and you'll get lynched. we just got our pre-summer flyer from the water department... i think i'll send it to you. you would not believe the "suggestions" on conservation. plus, we are required to eat hummus while doing any form of irrigation here. it sucks.

Someone should report you to my daughter, who thinks she is the earth day committee. She told me when she came home today that I should turn off the fans and open the windows (it was 98 degrees outside)

What a lovely backyard oasis! Maybe I should have a pool installed for earth day. My kids could water the lawn with all their splashing!

AC in April? That's just wrong...

We were going to have ours drained too, but they have to wait for this weekend when they can guarantee it will be below 95 degrees for 72 hours!!! Yes, 95 degrees. Our a/c has been pumping for a couple of weeks.

So Ms. Earth - why don't you kill a few endangered species and put rare wood flooring down in your house while you are at it!! Sheesh - draining a pool and running the A/C is just so terrible :)

I would have run my AC if it wasn't broken. And I barbequed and let lots of smoke in to the atmosphere. I put my cans in the garbage. I drove my SUV to the store a block away. I too did my part.
