An August Pool Day

 

 

 

A sunny day stretched out before us, full of sunshine and blue skies. Should we eat lunch on this lovely patio, or head right to the pool and embrace the summer day and enjoy a casual poolside snack? When August arrives, the summer days seem like the kind of days you need to savor. The month seems to fly by, as fall preparations and plans beckon. There are many things to look forward to, but it is these final days of summer that I want to hold on to.

 

 

No, I'm not ready for summer to end. I want many more pool days, spent in a lounge chair next to the blue pool; as blue as the sky in August. And, I was lucky enough to have a unexpected visit from my daughter, Megan, this weekend. Our choice for the day, was to relax by the pool, catching up on her life and hearing in her voice, how happy she is in Pittsburgh.

Life on this late summer day was very good :-)

Happy Monday!

  12. We waited so long for this summer that it's going by so quickly. One of the things I wanted to do this year was head north to cottage country and hopefully get out on a boat (it's been years). This is finally happening this weekend!!!!

  14. Hi Vicki, There is something about that last picture of the pool;) It makes me want to jump right in. The summer has been so warm and although most of us don't have air conditioning here in WA state (making it difficult to sleep sometimes;) I still enjoy the warm summer months. Enjoy your perfect day!! xxleslie

  17. We have talked about this before. Although we'd love to have our children live nearby the next best thing is knowing that they are happy in the life they have made for themselves. But a weekend together here and there is pretty awesome, too!
