Today is a sad day. It’s the first day I had to don my jacket . Yep, the pool is officially closed. The end of Summer was cooler than normal and brought lots and lots of rain. So the pool hasn’t exactly been inviting for more than a month, but as long as it’s not jacket weather I’m always optimistic that the solar heater could keep up during a warm spell for one last weekend of swimming bliss.
The leaves have already started to dominate the pool. I had planned on getting a cover for it this year. I was sure I didn’t want to endure another Fall with the pool uncovered. But alas, procrastination won once more. It won’t be long now before I’m fishing pounds and pounds of leaves out of the pool every day.
But the worst part is that I really really want Courtney to love the water. And she’s getting to an age where she could start to have a lot more fun in it. So now we’re looking at maybe late May if we’re lucky for the next stretch of pool time. I hope to spend lots of time with her swimming, surfing, sailing, etc., etc. over many years to come.
So while Karen loves Fall, it sort of saddens me because it’s so long until it warms up again. I guess it’s the Florida in me.
