A Refreshing Day

A Refreshing Day
March 1, 2015 CuteCoco

On Monday I promised myself that I would exercise by the end of this week. So when Saturday arrived, I knew what I wanted to do.

8am and the sky was gloom. But not my mood. I clapped my hands and announced to the boys who were lazing on the couch watching TV, “let’s swim!”. They were thrilled; jumped in excitement. They haven’t quite mastered the art of floating in a pool but water, they love so much.

The good thing about this apartment is that three blocks of 22 stories building surround the common pool. It buys a good amount of time until the Sun catches our shadow just around noon. For the next three hours we got really serious into swimming. J and I took turn to coach the kids and then I did few laps.

Afternoon we were off to meet my brother in law who came for a day trip with his wife. Spent the rest of the days with them until evening and we were back to our nest.


The whole thing was a mind-refresher to me as I have been busy running my handmade business the past weeks. It’s good to have a distraction like this. Sometimes in order to move two steps ahead you need to take one step back.

That’s what I did today. Relaxing.

What did you do today?

    Relaxing can help you regroup. I’m glad you got out and about!

  3. Swimming is great exercise and it’s so relaxing. I’m jealous! I had the pleasure of clearing 6 inches of snow yet again. Lucky me. :)
