the joys of summer

Whew, I've had a busy week! But I also spent some time in one of my fave places ... my pool !! It's both relaxing and invigorating at the same time. To me, nothing says "summer" more than floating around in sparkling blue warm water under the bright sun while sipping on a grape slush from Sonic, LOL. (btw ~ did you know that Sonic has drinks (including slushes) at half-price every day from 2:00-4:00 pm?)

(I took this photo myself, using my iPhone, so the angle's a little weird!)

I had to be sure to get some pool time in before this weekend because we're now dealing with the effects of Tropical Storm Bonnie. Thankfully, so far, we're having just blustery weather, nothing extreme.

Hope you'll be savoring some joys of summer over the weekend.... enjoy! :-)
