Saturday Morning in Camarillo

I woke up at 6:00 AM (woohoo! that’s sleeping in for me) and I looked around for Dear. Here he was outside in front of our little condo washing the neighbor’s car. Our condo units do not have water spigots anywhere but Dear figured out how to get around that and installed his own in the water heater closet on our front porch. Not many of the neighbors have this figured out yet so they have no access to a hose to wash their cars. I love to see Dear using his gift of service. What a guy!

When he got done with the cars we headed over to our developments lap pool to swim some laps. We were really ambitious and thought we’d do 30 minutes worth. After 2 minutes we were sucking air and wondering where our youthful fitness had gone. To our credit we lasted 15 minutes and decided golly if we could just do 15 minutes a day we’d be in great shape in a month! Dear and I had that huge pool all to ourselves. So… cars washed, laps swum, shower and breakfast and here it is 9:00 AM already!

  1. Great way to start the day!
    I would love an early morning swim!!!!
    I’m gonna settle for an afternoon run.
    Enjoy your Saturday.

    Miss M, so you are a runner. Our knees are beyond that these days. Blessings on you dear one…

  2. That sounds like a perfect morning. Of course, if I did all that by 9 AM, I’d need a nap!

    Bee, Yep a nap was called for and funny but I had to have 2nd breakfast, too! blessings…

  3. We’re early risers too. How wonderful that your husband did an act of kindness for a neighbor!! That pool looks so refreshing.

    Susie, You should see us gingerly getting in that pool at 7 am… blessings on you.

  4. It’s funny, when I go home to visit my parents I get up at 6am every day. When I get back home to my family, I can’ get up before 930-1000am.

    I long to be an early riser instead of being up all hours of the night. Any suggestions?

    Oh, and what an awesome way for your husband to “pay it forward”, I pray that God blesses you both a hundred fold for your kindness and giving. I’d also love to take a few laps in that pool….splish splash…
