A day spent at the pool is the best kind of day. Especially when it is the first time back after the winter we had and when you can only dream of being there. And, especially when the person in the lounge chair next to you is your daughter.
I was very happy that Melissa was able to come home for Memorial Day weekend and even more happy that her work schedule will allow her to have weekends off this summer. She loves to go to the pool as much as I do, so I foresee many more days spent like this.
I had my book to read, an unlimited supply of cold iced tea from a passing waitress and for lunch, my favorite club sandwich served at a poolside table. I know how lucky I am to have such a lovely place to go to in the summer months and plan on taking full advantage of the warm sunny days. The pool was packed with people on the day we were there, but the atmosphere was fun; even celebratory, as we Michigan residents finally welcome the start of our summer. A day by the pool, beats a day shoveling snow, always!
