Swimming and Slaw

 
I think something must be slipping... I forgot all about doing a blog post yesterday. I woke up in the middle of the night realizing I hadn't done one.

I was just going to show you where I swim, so I'll do that today. This was only the third day I've swum this summer, but today I went farther than I thought I'd be able to do so soon. I'm not fast, and my technique isn't fantastic, but I get there.

(Secret: I have really bad shoulders that like to dislocate, and I have to build them up, so I'm glad it's going well.)

The lake has a nice small beach. Most days there are quite a few families there, with kids in the water, but yesterday it was deserted. Fine with me... that way I don't have to watch out for boats.

I also made a big tub of cole slaw for my dinners this week. I always used to hand slice the cabbage and grate the carrots, but I recently discovered that I like the texture when it's coarsely ground with my Universal Grinder.

Not a strenuous day. That's fine. Next week is going to be nuts.

Have identical Universal Grinder, but I can't swim worth a lick. Would enjoy some of your slaw, though.

We went camping out at Will Oaks campground this weekend. Karen has a lovely little lake for swimming and floating in---which is exactly what we did ALL weekend. It's all we can do in this heat.

Ann- not much seems to taste good to me when it's hot, but cole slaw does

kulasa- if one likes cole slaw, it's really appealing! Thanks for stopping by

rainfield- we are blessed with many lakes here in Michigan
