I'm back from my swim competition and thought I should post a quick follow-up on the awesome time I had. Actually, racing 60 lengths of the pool is not at all awesome while the swimming is taking place. But a few minutes after, I thought it was the BEST event to do. I received a BRONZE medal for my efforts.
Many thanks to my new friend, Karen, where we enjoyed her hospitality all weekend. Great food and conversation.
And I much enjoyed sleeping under her pool table (I must clarify here, there was no alcohol involved, it was just the darkest and most cozy place to pull up a sleeping bag.)
And then, to top off a great couple of days - I had these wonderful books waiting for me when I got home. They arrived in the mail all sparkly, fresh-smelling and waiting to be enjoyed. I think I deserve an afternoon on the couch with some sweet tea. Now, which one to read first...
