This past week I've finally started to see some of the more predictable Summer weather I'd expect to have by mid July. Granted, going from 65 degree days to 90 degree days was a quick jump, but welcome for those who adore the Summer heat none-the-less.
While I do enjoy Summer, and any chance to laze about with a semi-legitimate excuse ("I would do that...but it's just too hot to move right now..."), some of the hotter days were feeling more brutal than balmy...especially the night I had two fans on but couldn't get the temperature in the room below 87 degrees.
Being the innovator that I am (...hah...), I decided to remedy my "too hot to move" issues by seeing what I could find for cooling techniques.
And thus I found... a not so kiddie, kiddie pool! It's actually a pretty decent size (12' by 36") for chilling in or doing some quick laps (as in, get one stroke in, and you're at the other side)...or just, you know...chilling in...
The only problem I was finding was that it took a bit longer to fill than I planned. I had hoped to do a photoshoot using my new water source once I had room to float around, but 4 hours in, and it was still just under half full.
I decided to shoot anyways because it was still 93 degrees, and any excuse to sit in the pool worked for me, even if it was still filling. Hopefully over the next few days I can finish filling it and work on my original idea, but in the meantime, I did get a few cute, sort of pinup shots!
...Not bad for only a foot of water and 10% battery left on my wireless remote...
How many of you "adults" opted for getting yourself a kiddie pool if you didn't have a lot of space in your yard during the summer?
If you haven't, how many are thinking about it now?!
