right now, although the days are warming up nicely, the pacific ocean temperature is around 59 degrees. horribly cold. so we have been swimming in the pool. i've been coaching her since i have a bit of experience and she's out of practice . it's been a lot of fun, however, since the swim is in two weeks we need to make the switch to the beach. this is something i'm beyond dreading (we both are) but i've promised to stay with her through the training and the actual swim. if your listening weather gods, please warm up the ocean a wee bit, and while your at it stop those dreadful tornado's. thank you.
(i hope it's not like this)
( but more like this)
(with dolphins to help her along)
one nice thing about being nearly out of a job is that i can go to our local farm stand during the day. i love being there with only a few people, discussing recipes and uses for all the lovely vegetables and fruits and even beans. yesterday though, it was the bouquet of sweet peas i brought home, that made my day.
have a wonderful weekend everyone!
