The swimming pool is open!

poolI found out yesterday that the building’s swimming pool is open again!  Yay!  I use to love swimming, but I’m not sure if I can anymore.  When Julian comes back I’ll find out.  I’m not sure if I cna actually lift my head out of the water to breathe (which wouldn’t be good at all), but I guess I would be able to float, and I can move my arms so I suppose I could swim. 

I’m hoping I can because it gets so hot here!  I heard on th news that this summer we can expect some days to go up to 100°F (37.78°C)!  When you can’t sweat below your shoulders you don’t tolerate heat very well at all!  I’m really not looking forward to the heat this summer.

You may notice the stairs in the photo, there is another way to get to the pool.  There is a gate on that level, but you have to go back through the building and down a floor to get to it.  The stairs lead to the sun deck where there is a tennis court, bbq, lounge chairs, a gazebo and things.  Here is a photo of that part.

I would like to try playing tennis too.  I did a bit when I was younger.  We found some tennis balls with bells in them at Petsmart, but I’m not sure how well they would work.  I think a beeping tennis ball would be better.  We were also looking at tennis rackets at Sports Authority.  We found a couple that I might be able to use if I attached them to my hand.  This reminds me I should go down to the games room and play some pool.  I’ve lived here for five months so far and I haven’t been down there since before we moved in!



  1. Swimming in the style of someone drowning lol!

  3. Today I was sitting here at the desk listing to music and checking posts on a message board I go to. I heard someone trying to push something under my door, and once they did I checked to see what it was. (I really should teach Sophie to get things that are slipped under my door for me)! I opened the envelope only to find a smaller one! Thanks Caroline LOL! It was taped up too, just to make things a little harder. When I finally got it open it was a key to the pool gate! Yay! Now I can have access to the pool too!
