Summertime....and the living......

Product Image

Summer is on it's way, my happiest time of the year. Summer just suits me to a t!
I feel good, I look healthy with the extra vitamin D I get. I feel happy!

I came home from work and jumped in the pool and took a nice relaxing swim, it soothed my soul.

I am a pisces and I love the water, not the ocean, but swimming pools and lakes. I grew up near Manhatten Beach, California, I hated the beach, the sand always got in places you never imagined and the sharks and riptides were the scariest things I ever lived through...I saw JAWS 13 times as a kid.

But put me in a pool or let me float with the current of a river or stream and I am at one with the world.

I remember as a teenager, one of the kids we knew had a swimming pool and we all went over to his house and played in it during the summer. I sat there one summer and said one day I will have my own swimming pool. And sure enough there it is in my own backyard, my very own swimming pool!! I just love it!!

I hope you can look back at some childhood dreams you had and make them come true this summer!
Life is short and we have but one life to live, so let's make it count and let's enjoy our summers!!

Summertime and the living is easy....

Here's a little Janis to keep you company...I am headed out to the pool to light the tiki torches and sip a little wine....rock on....

No WONDER you were scared of sharks in the ocean - THIRTEEN TIMES?!!! Looks like you're in the swim of things already, and summer's not even here yet - good must be heated to the perfect right temp!
