Refreshing Instead of Cold

What luck today to have the pool all to ourselves. Just us and
dive o saurus .
He's the toy dinosaur I use to practice surface dives. It's my way of checking every summer to see if I'm still in reasonable shape. I stand in the shallow part of the pool, dive down, and swim underwater to the deep end to retrieve him from the bottom . I can still manage it without feeling breathless. Yay!
The water was cold, 20C . The life guard said to think of it as refreshing . Ahh yes, this brain freeze is so refreshing

After that I came home, had some tea, and decided to get out again for another walk . Have to take advantage of the remaining sun lit evenings since the days are starting to get shorter.

Had a call this evening from the hospital reminding me of my MRI appointment . Gee, returning to work and an MRI in the same week. What fun .

Tomorrow I have to go to the hardware store and get a small tin of paint to do some touching up in the living room. I hope the colour I picked is a good match. I sure don't feel like having to paint the whole works again . I'm also buying a glass lined thermos to use as a water bottle. I'm sick of the plastic tasting water from these bottles I have . It can't be good to drink that.

Time to catch up on Email and some other online stuff.

Ahhh, I love the indoor heated pool at the club even more now!

... you would never catch me in a pool that isn't about a bathtub temperature :o)... I lived in Arizona for years and years and would wait to the middle of summer when the weather would be so hot that the pools would feel so wonderful! Love it.


MRI and work both sound like 'great' fun. :oS The hardest part is waiting for the results.

Wishing you a wonderful week!

I started swimming in my pool this year when it got to 20° and now it is 30° and it is almost too warm. (Brag, brag, brag...)
