Smiling, vibrant and gorgeous...her name is Leah.
We see each other frequently on Oak Bay Avenue...
she is a fabulous teacher that I worked with at a local Middle School and I think that I can safely say that she is "adorable"...the daughter of an acquaintance.
Leah is one of those energetic and enthusiastic teachers that can inspire and engage students...these are the teachers that we love for so many reasons.
Young and impressionable students' minds need more teachers like Leah.
We exchanged news...
I told her that we were investing in a quarter share of a waterfront cottage on Pender Island. The resort has two pools, a children's play area and there is a marina for our boat.
We are hoping to get the children and grand children over to the cottage for the 2 week summer holidays and we will use it in the off season on our week each month.
Leah mentioned how much she appreciated having a cottage for their family holidays when she was growing up and now that she has two children of her own they are spending time with her parents at the cottage...
making many happy memories.
Leah asked if I had any luck finding anything in the store.
and I proceeded to swing a garment in my hands high over my head and said with a smile on my face that I had found a swimsuit!
Swimsuit shopping is quite an event...and when it is successful its a win win!
In my experience swimsuit shopping has never been easy...
one needs to try on quite a few to find the best option.
This is the first suit in more than a decade that has not been black.
I have 2 suits in patterns of black and white...both have seen "better days."

(sounds rather glamorous)
I have never seen this brand of swimwear.
Understandable as there has been a drought of swimwear shopping...
do not even bother to ask why!
Obviously other shoppers have similar thoughts
otherwise why would they print a label that speaks to so many of us?
It must be a challenge for the designers of swim wear.
The suits need to fit, cover the "wobbly bits" and make us feel comfortable while wearing them.
I'll be dipping my toes in this pool soon.
I love swimming laps and I find it very relaxing.
It feels so good to tick a big item off the "to do list"
The swimsuit was my least favourite on my list,
but fortunately it was not that daunting after all.
Summer is just around the corner and I am gathering up some summer reads.
I am almost finished The Madwoman Upstairs and it is an interesting story.
What is on your summer reading list?
