a pool’s eye view

Today was a pool day for certain. Clear blue skies, no threat of rain, sunny, low 80s.  I sit writing this entry poolside about mid-afternoon. A nice breeze blows by once in a while and a few minutes ago the breeze lifted the umbrella up and the table I am typing on as well. wheeeeeeeeeee…......

We went to the Farmer’s Market in Warwick this morning and had a great time. I took lots of photos and my blog post is coming, probably tomorrow. We had a lovely lunch from our purchases at the market. But more of that to come in a later post.

Anyway, the afternoon has passed by with a combination of swimming laps and lounging on the floats. I took a few funny videos and we’ll see how they turn out. I also was trying to take a photo of my swimsuit and the pool by looking down at myself because the colors matched, and realized I was taking photos of my reflection in the pool [while in the pool], so I hammed my postures up a bit. Fun. See what you think below. I think my new camera is causing me to act a bit weird. I keep thinking of new things to entertain on my blog! I’m not sure if you are entertained or not as a reader, but I certainly keep myself entertained. And, I suppose that’s all that really matters. If you think I’m strange; so be it.

On a more serious note, I had some more amphibious reflections and made Rick bring his laptop poolside so I could type while soaking in the not-quite-summer-yet temperatures.

Swimming along doing the side stroke I see and notice the following things.
Sounds:First of all I hear the water gurgling and glugging beneath my ear. Leaves rustle companionably in the strong breeze and various birds lend their song to the air.
Sights: Looking up I see our big oak trees swaying in that same strong breeze, their large limbs flung wide. Clouds, far and few between scud by quickly out of my line of vision.  And for now, dear readers, yes, I am fully clothed in bathing suit. Rule #1: no skinny-dipping in daytime hours. Period. I make no promises for night time swims, however.

Since I’ve been sitting here, a chipmunk has come to peer at me, wondering what I am doing out here, and just now a hummingbird hovered near me. Good thing I don’t have on my neon pink suit today or he would have thought I was a flower! Butterflies flit in and out of the flowers in the bed next to the pool. We seem to have an abundance of white butterflies lately. They are beautiful, but skittish. I’ve tried numerous times to capture their images, but they are too camera shy.

So, with that I’ll sign off for today. Enjoy the vid. More to follow on the market tomorrow. Right now I need a nice chilled glass of white wine ...



ha ha! love the second shot! you have so much wildlife there! and i am terribly jealous of the pool. swimmin gin the ocean seems eons away now! we’ve had rain for almost two weeks!
hurrah for skinny dipping!

Divine!! I think I might need to come up for a visit in - say - August??

Love the pool creature shadow pics, too!

Yes, it is rather divine if I do say so myself!

Sure, Reya, anytime in August is fine. Come on up!

Pod, why not join Reya and come for a dip?

Hey can I come too???

Cold and rainy here…we have a late summer and it never really gets all that hot.  (and I consider that a good thing)  I’m glad to see you are working so hard to entertain us!

Sure, Susan, the more the merrier!
Maybe I should move to the NW; I am NOT a sun lover. I much prefer rain!
