We're getting a pool on the compound!!!
(People tell me I need to stop referring to the fact that I live on acreage with several different houses with my family as a compound. They say it makes us seem like a cult. We aren't. )
A bona fide, in the ground pool. No, we aren't digging a hole in the dirt and filling it up with the hose. My granddad, who lives two doors down, is putting in a pool for the grand kids! Last week he had the pine trees taken down got the permit from the county and construction started this week! I have no idea how long pool building takes but I am hoping that it will be done by Labor Day weekend. Hopefully we will be able to use it until mid-October, being that this is Hotlanta and all.
Tonight my cousin Daniel is going to be in town and I am making dinner. Shrimp and grits baby! I am using a different recipe this time. I bought 8 POUNDS of shrimp last night!!! Hopefully that will be enough to feed 12-16 people. Some of those people are children who don't eat much. I'll be sure to post pictures tomorrow!
