    I miss swimming!!! I use the local public (indoor) pool and they had been closed for remodeling before the pandemic hit and have not yet reopened. I can’t wait until I can get back in the water. I don’t go often, due to the open swim times, but I tried to get in once a month or so. So glad you got your meditative me time back 🙂

      I hope your pool reopens soon!

    This makes me happy. With this shit show and never really leaving the house I miss my “me” time the most.

      Yes! The gym and pool was my me time, so I missed it for sure.

    We froze our gym membership. But since it is now reopened I really want to go back. We are doing the home workout thing but it isn’t the same. Maybe I will put the mask on and just go. Love the picture of you in the bathing suit and mask!

      That’s nice you could freeze your membership. I couldn’t do that!

    My husband swam most of the summer. Outdoor pool. He went first thing when it opened and was usually the only one in the pool (and the pool had “set/chemical-ed” all night). I was not willing to go, but he did fine. His brother swam (also outdoor pool) the whole time March/to current! He is in Texas where I don’t think much ever closed (and he is foolish).

    Very glad you are able to do this, it will make a big difference in your life.

      It is definitely making a big difference for me!

      I have been jealous of everyone in warm weather parts of the country that had access of outdoor pools!
