This hot tub is missing fire. That’s what I have decided. Even though I installed the hot tub right next to the fire pit, let’s be honest, I’m not building a fire every time some yahoo wants to get into the hot tub. The lights are cool, but I just felt like it needed more.
Moving Day. I admit, generally in these posts I complain about being tired and talk about the challenges that face. I am tired. But today was a great day. Maybe my best showing ever as a amateur do-it-yourself. I wish I had more pictures, but I feel like if I had pulled out the camera more, I may have gotten punched in the mouth by the guys doing the work.
I didn’t do any “work” on the hot tub today. I did some prep though. I have been saving all the scrap aluminum that I have been pulling off the house (screen doors and what not). I took them to the scrap yard. I got 28 dollars for my trouble, and a free ice cream sandwich, that I am not supposed to it. But I did, because free ice cream tastes soooo good.
Then I stopped at the landscape supply place, and picked up half of a ton of crushed limestone, which was $18.00. So I have a hot tub, and a 1/2 ton of limestone and I am up a 10 spot.
I feel like I have done nothing but dig all summer. I will say now that digging when it’s cold and even raining, is MUCH better than when it’s 105 degrees and hasn’t rained in a month. My mother stopped by yesterday when I was pulling up the bricks in the sidewalk. She told me that she felt like I could have the hot tub installed THIS weekend. I told her she was crazy and didn’t realize how much work it was going to be.
I really want a hot tub. I have always wanted a hot tub. I love hot tubs. Lots of people who have hot tubs, say they never use them. That’s never going to be me. I figure in a few years, I will get one. As a matter of fact I am right on schedule with my outside work, and all I have to do before it gets cold out is paint the back fence. Which would be done only I can’t find the gun for my sprayer. Every time I am right on schedule, I get some great idea, or something happens.
