Loving the Pool
Summer is here, no doubt about that. And for us that means time in the pool. Day or night, there is never a bad time to jump in and cool off.
On weekends I am in and out a few times during breaks in housework - just a dip to break the sweat and then I'm refreshed to keep on working. It doesn't matter that I drip water as I trek through the house - washing the floors is the last thing I do before I call it 'done'. So much more comfortable cleaning the house all wet from a refreshing dip.
Some evenings we head up with our coffee and enjoy drinking it while sitting in the pool. Most evenings we take a dip before getting into bed - so much easier to sleep with the body cooled off. We do not sleep with the a/c, just the ceiling fan and the open window/door which sends a wonderful breeze through the room.
Our third floor has an even better breeze, and one day I might put a bed up there under the stars, covered with netting to keep out the mosquitoes that are not up there right now but will surely track me down (I'm a mosquito magnet). We don't use our third floor nearly enough, but last night we took our coffee up there and just sat and enjoyed the breeze and the view of the bay overlooking Cancun.
The days are so hot, but it's worth it just to feel summer again. Summer - my favorite time of the year.
