Brave the Heat

in All Posts

One of the funny things about being a native Floridian is that you never, ever go to the beach or pool.  It’s a rarity that the Husband and I brave the heat to actually lay out poolside in our apartment complex.


So today, we felt like tourists!


I have a lot of writing and proofreading to do today, and I figured I’d rather be tanning and working than cooped up inside.


For breakfast, I had toast, PB, and banana:


I had watermelon before we left:


And I brought crackers and hummus to the pool:


And a baggie of dates:


Obviously, under normal circumstances, I would not consider crackers, hummus, and fruit to be "lunch" (more like a snack!), but I feel completely emotionally drained and miserable and sad after last night’s events.  I just have no appetite.


A beautiful butterfly to cheer me up:


Back to work I go!


Isn’t Sunday suppose to be a day of rest?! Are you relaxing?

    When I lived in Florida, I hardly ever went to the pool. I did, however, go on Christmas Day just to rub it in my Northern friends' faces 😉

    I love seeing pics of your meals. They always give me a lot of ideas!

    Cute hat!

    Oh, I'm definitely relaxing today! It's thunderstorming, so I'm enjoying a cup of coffee and an online poker game on the couch =)

    I live in the Cayman Islands and have a pool at our complex too. I can't seem to remember the last time that I went in it? I think I went in the ocean about 2 months ago! Isn't that sad? How many people would trade with us to be in the sunshine? We totally take it for granted!

    Try to relax today. You need it.

    Ha, only in Florida do apartment complexes have outdoor pools! 😛

    Today was definitely not my day of rest. I had to work at 5am then went for a near three hour bike ride after. Now I'm resting though…wish I was by the pool! 🙂

    I attempted the pool yesterday… it was so hot the pool was like a spa! LAME… got to love living in the desert 🙁
    I miss my hometown of So. Cal

    Sucks when you're sad 🙁

    I love hanging by the pool! I lived in an apartment complex with a pool for about 2.5 years and I think we only used the pool about 5 times!

    Enjoy the relaxing day!

    Sometimes I wonder if I know how to relax! Weekends are like catching up for me on everything I don't get to during the week. I rarely give myself "permission" to read or watch a movie without doing something else at the same time. It's terrible.
