Back to Backwashing

with 2 comments

Susan and Nat are cleaning the house like hasn’t been done in ages, so I figure I’ll make myself useful.

Is this the first time I’ve backwashed the pool completely on my own (except for when Susan came out to check the chlorine tablet level, which I would have checked on anyway)? Either I need to write down the instructions (like, how much powder to add at the end, and how to put the pump back in the service mode), which I too easily forget, or else I need to do this myself more often so maybe it sinks in. Susan’s been doing too much of the pool maintenance far too long, I’m ashamed to admit.

Through the remainder of the week, we need to shock the pool, then backwash it again. Which Susan will definitely have to do, or at least supervise, since I’m clueless how to shock a pool. See?

Ike Recovery Multitasking

leave a comment »

This past Monday, trash collection took normal trash, but left the pile of tree debris we had stacked out at the curb. Houston says its trash service will pick up storm debris; but our neighborhood contracts out with Waste Management, and of course there’s no readily available information to be had on what their policy will be or when it might be carried out. Our lawn service doesn’t chop debris, but did agree to haul it off next week. Even so, it’s relaxing to chop it all up myself, whereupon Susan will bag it, whereupon our trash collection will take it as if it were normal trash. (And after I took the lion’s share out by the pool for chopping, as pictured here, today’s trash collection did take the small orderly stack of debris that remained at the curb; so after this pile has been chopped and bagged, we will be done.)

But as lazy as this Ike recovery effort probably appears compared to what most Ike victims face, at least I’m multitasking. That’s not my Zen mp3 player piped into my ears; it’s my cell phone. I’m on a conference call, discussing government regulations that will extend relief for companies adversely affected by Hurricane Ike.

Watching Steam Clean

leave a comment »

Blue watches me push the steam cleaner over the foyer rug. He should run warn his furry friends that this is not one of my steamclean relaxation moments. That I will lie in wait to find out who has been making this their private toilet. And intend to exact justice. A certain little chihuahua and his person should take heed.

Cleaning the Zoo

leave a comment »

cleaning the zooListening to In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida on its 40th birthday while steam cleaning the foyer carpet the hard way (my noodlenoggin iron butterflied head not having noticed that the cleaning fluid reservoir has drained dry). With three dogs and two cats, steam cleaning the “zoo” is a constant task. Little do I know, the zoo is about to gain a newcomer.
