June Arrives and With it Summer

Honeysuckle on wafting on the breeze as the temperatures hit 94 on the baseball diamond yesterday really brought home how great it felt to be on a floatie in the pool during the late afternoon. It took until June for me to finally get in the pool, but as I was baking in the sun I realized that this is what I dream of doing every afternoon that I am not at the beach.

While I was basking in the sun, I realized that despite all of the warnings about sun exposure leading to skin cancer that I am a sun worshipper of sorts. It felt great to be warm in the sun.

The trees and ornamental grasses around the pool have created a private haven carved out from the middle of suburbia.

Everyone needs a refuge from the hectic pace of life. My pool is mine.
