I may have had my last night swim of the summer tonight. I can’t imagine it will be warm enough many more nights considering it’s September. Yes, private pools are a horrible waste of water and other resources but it was very nice to be able to invite friends over this afternoon, in the 90+ degree heat and enjoy a swim (even better to sit by–or in–the pool with margaritas!) But my favorite use of the pool is still slipping in after the kids go to bed, swimming a few laps and then just floating, face up to the stars, watching the light reflected off of the water dance in the treetops. Here’s to a wonderful warm summer gone by and looking forward to an exciting fall, a cozy winter, an energizing spring and hot nights once again.
