365 Grateful – Day 87

365 Grateful - Day 87

I am grateful for the first swim for this summer in our pool today!

I love swimming in our pool in summer.  It not only cools me down on a hot summer day but it relaxes me in a way that nothing else can.  I love to float around and swim under water.

I also needed some outside time.  I needed to get me some Vitamin D.  Recent blood tests revealed I am Vitamin D deficient.  What the?

I took my camera with me for this first swim (just in the shallow area – didn’t want to risk getting it wet!) as I knew it would be my grateful photo for today.  I took quite a few photo’s but selected this one because I absolutely love the patterns and colours in the water.  It reminds me of peacock feathers!  There is no filter on this photograph.

  1. I’ve only been in my (apartment’s) pool once, but after I’m back following Christmas I’d like to change that!

    As for the Vitamin D thing, I think it’s more common than we think. When I was trying to get pregnant a couple of years ago I got tested and was also deficient! (Strange given where we live!!!)


    • Yep Deb – get in that pool more often. It’s soooo relaxing and therapeutic 🙂 Yes re the Vitamin D being more common than we think – I saw a video by Amelia Burton about it. Might post it on my FB page actually. It is strange considering where we live. Perhaps the slip, slop, slap has gone a little too far?
