A SUNDAY DIP


Today I thought I heard "splashing and laughing" at the pool.  But it's February for heaven's sake.  True, the sun is shinning but this is the first time anyone has braved the "unheated" pool since summer.

It was three young boys and one girl.  I got my camera to document this first dip in the pool.  They said the water was COLD but that didn't keep them from some splashing and fun.  When they saw me, they wanted to know if I had cookies, and I had just made a batch, so after they dried off, they came up for for a few.

I truly love that this complex is FAMILY and Seniors as I love the laughter and fun children bring to a community.   

I will be waiting till summer to take my dip!!

    1. They know me well by now, and my cookie jar is seldom empty. Of course my new mixer is a great help to making them in a hurry.

  6. that looks like such a nice pool! It must've been very warm there yesterday for them to go swimming. Our subdivision pool is closed until May. We did have some nice warm temps yesterday too though.

    1. It was warm high 70's, but I like 80's and 90's for swimming.

  7. I think kids are much braver than I am.
    What a great sense of adventure they have and I'm glad your complex is kid friendly.
    I'm also glad you have the "Cookie Lady" reputation.
    Love that those kids know it too. (:0)

  11. I don't think I would want to live in a community with everyone the same age as me. It would get boring.

    1. Your right, Jim. What makes this place to great, is we have seniors and families. The best of both worlds.

  12. Brrr. I don't like to be cold. But kids just like to have fun and don't often think about the weather or temperature like we do. I'm sure they were very happy to have the cookies after. Best wishes, Tammy
