Summer--Day 2......



Trying to get into the summer groove.....


........which I must say is kinda hard when you have a day job that sticks you in a windowless basement office for many hours each day.
And, it's even harder when said office is extremely cold.....so much so that I run a heater in my little office for a good portion of each day....

From an energy standpoint, it makes no sense at all....the heater, that is.
But, it is the only thing I can do.....unless I want to wear my winter wardrobe 12 months out of the year.

And, that's no way to get into the summer groove.


Last night, I decided that I really need to find a way to tell myself that it's summer....and the livin' is easy.

So, with that in mind, I made a mental list of things I can do with the time and resources I have available to me....

And, for the first time in a very long time--I actually considered going to our community swimming pool.


Going to a swimming pool would definitely make it feel like summer.

And, I was good with that....

What that means is that I'd be putting on a bathing suit and actually going to a public place...in the same town I live in.... where I might actually run into people I know.

I wasn't trembling at the thought of it nor was I masterminding some amazing disguise.

I should probably consider this a turning point....don't you think?
All it took was 115 pounds.

Bring on summer!

Make sure you wear your sunscreen. The smell of suntan lotion always makes me think of summer.
