SUNDAY 16 JUNE
Having just spent the last twenty minutes arguing with my laptop, trying to delete an unwanted programme, I decide I've had enough and that I need to cool off...both metaphorically and literally!
It's 5.25pm(ish)...the perfect time for me to get into the pool. The water is sitting at 26 degrees (C) at the moment, but even so, there's a bit off an 'OOH!' moment as I lower myself into the sparkling, turquoise water! JUST GET UNDER GIRL... it will be fine!...and it's better than fine, after that initial dunk!
As I grab my new pink 'noodle' (my left shoulder hurts too much to use for swimming)and start moving up and down the pool, I feel the heat of the sun on my back and hear the sound of birdsong from somewhere fairly close by. I can hear the little splashes my arms are making and also the tap-tap of the pool thermometer(a little blue whale this year) against the side of the pool......and there, in the background, is the sound of some kind of electrical tool being used somewhere up on the mountain behind me.
As I swim up and down, looking around at the views from each direction I am thankful, yet again, for whatever quirk of fate allowed me to end up here. I am reminded to give thanks for all the blessings in my life, and as I start to go through them in my head I hear the village clock chime the half hour...... and I wonder if that programme has deleted yet......just another few lengths and I might go and find out!
Linking up to SIMPLY A MOMENT, hosted by the lovely ALEXA......and confessing to it being another half hour before getting out of the pool!!
Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
