Escape...

Quietly she slipped out the back door - the baby was sleeping, the boys inside playing one of their favorite video games. Perhaps she wouldn't be missed, if only for a moment. She slipped off her sarong, and slowly dipped her feet into the water. It was cool and inviting. Gently she slipped beneath the cool water and with a slow lazy stroke came to the side of the small back yard pool. Turning onto her back, floating in the water - completely alone. She looked up into the blue sky, then closed her eyes to savor this one perfect moment of solitude and peace.

*sigh* I can't even imagine how nice it would be to be in a pool without having to be on alert for the children. Lucky you! :-)

I can picture the pool and the peace full surroundings. I'm in Covina and went several times visiting a friend in Sierra Madre. May I ask how did you get the picture working in the kitting blogger? I tried that so many times and only have a red X in place of the picture. Would you be willing to help me to get it nice looking with the picture?? Please.
