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!
