A nice, calm day

July 31, 2017 Monday

I slept like a rock last night – I don’t think I moved all night long!!!  I woke up at 9:09 and felt nice!!  I had a nice relaxing day. I knew I had to take it easy cause I didn’t have a lot of energy but I also knew I needed to move too and not just sit. So I piddled around and kept moving but just having a nice relaxed time.  Part of the time, Coen and I sat in the shade on the front porch and watched Frank mow the yard.  I like to mow the yard but knew I shouldn’t do it today.

Later we all had very yummy grilled cheese sandwiches!!  So yummy!! Then the kids and I went to the pool for lessons. We all had a great time and I took it easy. I was very well covered in shirt, hat, and sunscreen but I guess the water reflected off the water and the area around my mouth feels burned. I’m going to have to sew a veil across the front of my hat to prevent that problem but I’ll do it if it allows me to continue getting in the pool. I’ll attach a photo if I do that. It should be cute. After swim lessons, we grilled hamburgers!!  I certainly do get to eat well when I’m visiting!!

So I’ve had a day where I was pretty tired and sort of weak, with some digestive upset but no foot pain or nausea. Overall, a pretty good day. I’m afraid that tomorrow may be the last swimming lesson day of this summer and I hate that but it’s been a great summer with the lessons this year. I’m going to bed!!!
