As I am typing today, my fingers are cold; I forgot what it felt like when it’s 62 degrees in the house, but I refuse to succumb to turning on the heat. Tom has a terrific solar cover solution on our odd-shaped pool (two circles that look like bubble wrap), so we may be able to pull off a couple of more weeks in the water. I fell up the stairs in early May and damaged something in my shoulder, so it’s been water aerobics and water running for me all summer, but I love it. Wendy Corsi Staub told me about a waterproof iPod, which you can see above. Pretty cool, right? We are going to interview Wendy about her audiobook listening via this device in the next few weeks. For us readers, extending reading time to the water is great!
