The solution to waking up too early

Yesterday I woke up at 6:00 am.... ON A SATURDAY!! I could have slept in and here I was wide awake. Nate didn't have a soccer game until 3:00 pm. Everyone else in the house was asleep, but not me. I did a load of dishes, made myself some breakfast, put a wash on and watched the "Ghost Whisperer" from the previous night, messed about on the computer. About 11:00am I started to fade from not getting enough sleep so I decided to take a nap ~ in the pool!
It's really the best place to nap ~ on my float ~ in the pool. DSC07360 The warm sun on my face and a cool breeze blowing. The pool temp is just perfect this time of year. Not too hot/not too cold. It was so quiet in the neighborhood. No lawnmowers or power tools could be heard which is odd for a Saturday. The only sound was the birds in the trees. DSC07321It was heaven. I was actually able to just let it all go for almost 45 minutes and just float.
I probably could have used another 45 minutes but that's about the time the kids decided to come out and join me. DSC07327 That's when the chaos begins ~ the screaming, the splashing, the whining. Actually I'm glad they enjoy the pool. I just wonder what I was thinking when I got them the atomic squirters!
Richard came out and finished up his book DSC07328and then joined us in the pool. Actually we enjoyed the pool so much we were actually late for Nate's soccer game! It started at 3:00 but he's supposed to be there at 2:15. We didn't get there until 2:45. Oops! Oh well, the price you pay for pure bliss!

I am so jealous of that pool. I cringe with envy every time you post pictures of it. So amazing!
