Sweet babies over for more Friday night pool frolics this week. That's 3 weeks in a row - FUN! Next week we won't get them. We're trying to wring as much fun as possible out of the pool before the water gets too cold.

I'm not feeling wistful about the end of 105 degree weather, but it does seem the merest moment between the end of the super-hot weather and the instant when I realize the pool is just too too cold to swim in. I usually eke out a bit of cold swimming even in October, and I'll try to suck it up and swim at least until then. However, I remember several birthdays of mine have been bitterly cold (Oct 8), and I always hope for that, as I crave nasty weather. Sweet!

It's s'posta be 95, 93 degrees by mid week next week, and that is a cold spell, baby. Let's hope it doesn't fall off too fast - finally got the house somewhat presentable and it's been great having pool parties lately. [ Somehow I just KNEW Kelly would be bringing some cooler weather with her. That's right: she's bad. She's nationwide.]

I know that I won't always have a swimming pool, but for this moment, it sure is sweet. I'm going to miss it some day. If you have a choice between a lawn and a pool, take the pool every time. Oh, and make sure you have a good camera on hand!

Damn it. I wanna be "nationwide."

phlegmfatale said...

nongirlfriend - as much as you travel? You are SO officially nationwide!

nongirlfriend said...

Yeah, well, it sounded good. Must do something about that soon!

Kelly said...

You know I'm bad, I'm bad, ya know it.

I have to bring a little Pennsylvania with me you know. What could be better than a little cooler weather?

Just wait until winter! (Bwaaahahahahahahahaaaaa)

I don't think you have to worry about this cold wave ruining your pool parties. The 100's will bounce back quick enough.

We always crash my cousin's pool (she lives in an apt) and were going there every Saturday there for a few months.

Now that it is tapering off, I know how you feel - I don't want to loose my tan or the simple rest I catch up on there!

You are October 8? Well imagine that, I'm Oct 10. I knew there was a reason we clicked.
Round here there is definitely no outdoor swimming on that day, unless maybe you are a member of a polar bear club.

CP said...

I don't have a lawn or a pool.

But I do have seven computers in the house. Heh.

Glad you're having fun.

nongirlfriend - travel - you'll be alright

kelly - looks like it's already cooling off in anticipation of your arrival

fuzzbox - as long as it stays in the 70s I'm alright with swimming

heatherb - isn't it amazing how swimming in a pool or lake is one of the most restorative things there is?

barbara - No WONDER - we're practically twins! Yeah, I just always knew you were super-extra-special! Wow, so it must be cool there now already?

cp - Well, find what you like and get lots of it, that's what I say, hon. Glad you're having fun, too!

starbender - Yeah, we're trying to make the most of what's left of the summer. And these kids are so smart and sweet and such a joy. I am thankful every day for their sweet little selves. I'm totally unworthy, but I try to make up for it anyway.
