Looky!! Looky!! I won this nice award from Donna at "zztop's little piece of heaven."

This is my first award! Heck, I don't post that often, but I can't think of a nicer one than a Nice Matters Award!!

Bless your little pea picking heart Donna, I sure do appreciate it and I'm as pleased as punch!!

I know I'm supposed to put it on my sidebar, but I don't have a clue as to how to do that. Well....I have a clue but I'm scared I'll mess things up so that I can't unmess them. It's happened before. I'm good at messing things up and then not being able to fix them. Kind of like poor Humpty Dumpty. All the King's horses and all the King's men........and all that good stuff.

I finally got in my nephew's swimming pool today. He called me from VA, where he's working, and asked me if I could do him a favor. He wanted me to go over and let the kids inside, since both kids had forgotten their keys (imagine that!) (one left her's at home and the other left her's at school), so I told him I would go on over. I decided that since I was going I'd just swim some while I was there. I had just gotten half my bathing suit on when he called back and said I didn't have to go over since both kids went home with friends. Since I was halfway ready I went ahead and drove on over there. (I got totally dressed first!) I had a wonderful time in the pool all by myself for a whole hour! It was so warm and very relaxing. Then when his wife came home, after picking up both kids, I was ready to get out. I think I'll be going back again soon. I'll see how sore I am tomorrow first!

Congrats my dear on your Award! I cannot believe that this is your first Award..! I mean I DO believe it, but...well, you deserve a lot more, dear Rachel.
The pool sounded wonderful. When I could excersize, swimming was my favorite form of excersize because I never thought of it that way...I just always loved the feel of the water on my body and the ease of swimming through it...Do a few laps for me Rachel...lol!

I'm glad you enjoyed the pool. My sister has a pool and ever so often I sneak away and cool myself.
I know the feeling about changing ro adding something on your sidebar. I would love to give my blog a face lift, but I'm afraid I will cause some permanent damage or delete it all. Maybe someday I will get the nerve to try !!!!!

Congrats on this award. It's a really special one and you deserve it!

I had to get my granddaughter to put mine on my sidebar...I watched what she did- but I doubt very much if I'd be able to do it, myself!

Hey- enjoy that swimming pool as often as you can!!

I'm looking out at an empty pool right this moment, and it looks inviting. I don't think I've ever been in it by myself, come to think of it, but I might just do that after reading this post.

That 'HALF!!' stuff sure got my attention.
Our neighbors are gone for the summer, to their Colorado ranch. They said we could swim in their pool, we came once when BP was here. I did one last year too, Mrs. Jim didn't even go once that year.

I don't use a 'new blog' so I can't help you. I think you can just drag it over, can't you?
You can put it on the top of every post, that way we can all appreciatde it more than if on the sidebar.
Stay cool, congratulations, thanks for the visit and comment, and next time stay dressed while you are driving.

Congratulations! How wonderful.

It's easy to put the award on your sidebar with the new blogs. Go to the "help" section and it will walk you through it. Trust me. I'm not that smart, and I can do it.

I've not been in a pool in years...

The temperatures you are experiencing must make the water in a swimming pool very warm.
Come by here for a swim in the river. It will be embracingly refreshing. You will either feel wonderfully alive or wish you were dead depending on your tolerance for rapid changes in body temperature. LOL
