After work yesterday I headed to the pool for a swim. I have to admit as much as I love to swim I did not want to go at first. I was feeling lazy. Waking up at 5:30am, blogging edits, preparing for work, putting the kids together, breakfast for Malina, driving in traffic, and then working all day can be tiresome.
The sun was out. The sky was blue. It was the last day of my swimming pass. I made myself go. And I am so glad that I went. There was a breeze in the air. The water was a little cold as I stepped in. By the end of my first lap I was warmed up – although I could feel the chill out of the water when my arms reached in and out of it.
Forty minutes later my swim was over. I sat down for a minute to take in my surroundings one last time for the year. The sun is starting to set much earlier now – the shade was everywhere. There was nowhere for me to feel the rays above before heading on the drive home. I toweled off, put on my sandals, and walked to the car glad that I had made it out for that one last swim of the year.
