The kids have been swimming a lot this summer at the neighborhood pool while I sit in the shade and watch. I wish I was the kind of mom that would swim and play in the water with them but I can’t even begin to describe how oppressive the Texas sun is. The sticky sunscreen, the chlorine, the sweating even when you’re in the water – it’s all just super unappealing to me.
So I sit on the edge armed with ice-cold water in a bottle and read or sketch or just enjoy the peace for a few minutes. And now with my new laminated cotton bag, the kids can drip on my stuff and I don’t worry about it.
Magazine, Patchfolio and a couple of good books. Definitely enjoying my latest read, Where Men Win Glory. It’s so good that I’ve had to put it down several times because I can’t believe what I’m reading.
Don’t be fooled by the blue sky and beautiful water. This shot was taken right before we left. I was hot, sweaty and nursing an injury from a soccer game yesterday. 3 of my toes – stretched back farther than any toe in it’s right mind should go. BUT I’m likin’ the bag – a bit bigger than the Diaper Bag with straps from the Tailored Bag.
