Save the Pool
In this heat my ankles have been hot and swollen, and I was just saying to my boyfriend how I should get a kiddy pool, just to keep cool in the backyard and soak my tired feet in.
So he said, "Take that one that's been blocking our gate for a week." At first I was disgusted. He said, "Big deal, just clean it and you are good to go."
It was still there this morning after the trash crew came and left. So I booted it over the gate, scrubbed it with a brush I use to clean the truck, and now I have a way to keep my feet cool and happy. And I saved one more thing from the landfill, at least for now.
Oftentimes the universe plops what we need right in front of us, and we don't recognize our good fortune. I'm sure buying a pool would have cost me $20 or so. So it's like I earned $20.
