Come On, Jump in for a Swim
The weather here has been a sweltering 90 degrees, with high humidity. I can feel the sweat rolling down my back when I’m outside in the middle of the day. It’s hard to find a place to cool off. It seems like the air conditioner never clicks off, trying to keep the inside temperature comfortable.
We’ve been swimming in the pool, at the end of these blistering days, to cool off. The water temperature is great! I remember when my girls were younger and they were in the pool all the time. They were like two little fish. During the Summer it seems like they lived in their bathing suits. Our backyard was filled with kids. Their skin would be shriveled like raisins from swimming so long. We’d practically have to drag them out, to get them to take a break to eat. Most nights we’d all swim after dinner and play family pool games. Those were the days.
We see quite a few homes with pools here in Florida. In higher price points, in some areas, homebuyers expect to find a screened pool in the backyard of a home for sale. If a house doesn’t have one, some buyers will move on to the next property. Depending on what area and what price range the house is in, determines how much value a screened pool will add to a property.
As the years have passed, our girls are grown, life is a bit more hectic. They’ve got full time jobs and they are both in school. It’s a bit of a challenge to coordinate family time together, but we try every chance we can. The pool is no longer full of teenagers, but when the sun starts setting, if we don’t have appointments with clients, we stop to relax for a dip and enjoy our quiet time.
