Okay, I admit… I’m bad at blogging this year. My apologies. My blog needs some attention. Since it’s Thursday, why not give some thought to a “This or That Thursday” post? I know my state isn’t the only one, but we’re experiencing a heat wave. We’re also in a moderate drought like a lot of other areas. It isn’t even summer yet!
I scanned through my options for this theme and the water looked refreshing and perfect for this week.
Which option to you prefer? Going to the lake or spending time in a pool? Why do you choose one over the other? Or, are you like me, and have an explanation for both?
Let me begin with… I don’t wear a bathing suit. At the lake, it isn’t a problem. I can stroll along the shoreline in shorts, or rolled up jeans, dangle my feet off a dock, and no one cares. I love being at the lake but not in lake water past my knees if that makes sense. I don’t know about you, but I want to see what I’m stepping on or what kind of creature is creeping around down there. Boating, tubing, water skiing, and fishing is fun on a lake too. If I want to relax and have a fun day outside with the sound of waves, a breeze coming off the water, the smell of food cooking on a grill, and usually trees for shade, I prefer the lake.
This means, if I go into the water, I prefer a pool, but since I don’t wear a bathing suit, it’s a slim change you’ll find me there.
On a side note: Most of my absence is because I’m writing. That’s the positive side of my neglect. The negative side is procrastination in other areas of my life. Before last year, I rarely ignored important things. It’s a habit I slipped into. Maybe when I finish the two books I’m working on, I’ll get my mojo back. Am I the only one in a slump?
In the meantime, I’ll see ya when I see ya. <grin>
Have a wonderful day!
