Nice surprises

The Seattle city beach patrols around here ended this weekend so the life guard/instructor staffs at all the pools are doing their final swizzle for Fall.  Out with the summer-only kids and in with the ones with enough seniority and skills to grab the plum outdoor jobs on the Summer shift.  When I got to the pool today, I first spied Wendy.  Wendy is a good egg who was at the large Summer-only outdoor pool.  She's been at my regular pool fora  long time and really is nice.  But then I spied Chelsea.  We gave each other big 'hi's' and I asked 'are you going to be on this staff??' and she said yes!

Chelsea is my second favorite aqua aerobics instructor. She used to teach my Saturday class (at another pool) and now we have her.  Yeah!!!  She likes me a lot ever since I went to her first class at her Summer pool.  It was a very cold and windy day.  The pool was outdoors and there were only 3 of us but I let her know that my only reason for being there was her.  She was very appreciative and even mentioned it again today.  It will be so nice to have her around!

When I plunged into the pool today I was in for quite a shock. The heating issue of the past couple of days had the pool at a very brisk, nearly chilly temperature which was actually pretty nice.  Well, today they over fixed and the pool was so many degrees warmer than even normal, it was a shock.  But, fine. Happily, I can swim in any temp.

Then when I got home, I had a beep from my brother who had tuned into the webcam and I wasn't there! And he was shocked.  Hahahah.  He was at his son's outside Boston.  They were wrapping presents for his granddaughter's 2nd birthday party.  When I got inside, we hooked up over video and I got to see his son, Matt, and even, briefly, Jen, Matt's wife.  It was very nice of my brother to hook us up.  The kids were at school. He said he'd call back when they were there.

It is not going to get Africa hot.  The poor weather people will be so disappointed.  I was looking at the 10 day forecast and next week the high temps are going to be in the 60's!!!  YEAH!!!!
