If We Were All The Same...

Something happened Thursday that made me very happy!

Our pool opened, finally!  Usually, it opens around the long weekend in May, or at least by the beginning of June each year.  But, this year was different.

This year, we are having repairs done to the balconies.  Workers were blowing off the concrete dust, instead of vacuuming it up, at least until recently.  It was a given that the dust would go into the pool, and therefore would go through the pump and filter, clogging it up.

No one wanted that to happen!

So, we just waited until the workers made their way far enough away from the pool.  Then, once this happened, the City of Windsor had to come and inspect the pool and area, to give permission to open the pool for our use. 

Yay!!!  Thursday was the day!

Now, don't misunderstand me.  I did not go in the pool Thursday.  I was far too busy for that!  However, yesterday, I went into the pool for the first time this year!

Actually, I cringed getting in.  Our pool is a heated pool, but it was cold.  At first, I thought possibly that someone had forgotten to turn the heater on, but later, I overheard someone saying that the heater isn't functioning properly.

Hmmm... that makes sense!  Heater or not, with our hot temperatures this weekend, I am sure the water will warm up.

My poor body is aching, though.  Well, in addition to my regular exercise, I exercised in the pool. 

Believe it or not, it's easy for me to overdo it while in the pool, for I can work out much better in the pool, than anywhere else.  I can do things in the pool that I cannot do outside the pool.  Like situps and other stuff.  The only problem is that while I don't feel pain while working out on the water, I certainly feel it, later!

Okay.  So I am weird!  I admit it.  I'm very different.  But then, if we were all the same, life would be boring, don't you think?

Until next time...
