#274 see you next spring!

274/365 see you next spring!, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

As it’s the first of the month today, it was supposed to be my monthly explanation of the Finnish name for October. Unfortunately, it’s a weather-related name, and today’s weather conditions just weren’t right for it. So while waiting for the right day, I will post another picture today.

It was the last day at the outdoor swimming pool before they close for the winter. The children’s pool was all quiet – the colourful snake slide looked lonely and deserted. Many adults were making the most of the last chance, though, and in gorgeous sunshine.

I spent a full hour aquajogging, chatting with a friend and enjoying the free light therapy from the sun. It’s simple things in life that often bring the most joy and happiness.

    I did wonder if you’d put a photo of the empty pool as the empty/simplicty theme 🙂 but this is even better than I thought.

    Isn’t it great that October (lokakuu) isn’t yet living up to its name.

    I do enjoyed swimming yesterday. Too bad it’s closed now until May. Countdown begins …

    And so important to take advantage of those sunny days to lift our spirits. A few days of cloud and rain here and I’m craving some sunshine.
