Hanging Out at the Pool (Photostory)
Thanks to all of Danielle's and the fundraising committee's work, there is a community pool in Morristown. It's been getting a lot of use this summer. It's a wonderful place to relax and sometimes they have neighborhood parties and cookouts here.
Today there are a couple of families hanging out and a few of the new residents have decided to enjoy the pool.
"I haven't seen you much lately." (Antoinette)
"I know. The boutique is keeping me busy. It's good to get away for a bit." (Racquel)
"Well, we need to start scheduling some time together. It's crazy that we live in the same town and can't find time to spend with each other." (Antoinette)
Monica is enjoying the pool with her dog, Teddy (of course)
"This town is growing leaps and bounds. Every time I turn around there is someone new moving here. Now who is that? I haven't seen her before." (Antoinette)
"I don't know. I haven't seen her in the shop before, either." (Racquel)
"If Danielle were here, she would go introduce herself. I should do that, too. Maybe later. I'm too tired to play the host of the welcoming committee right now." (Antoinette)
They are talking about the new girl that just arrived in town. I don't know who she is, where she came from or anything. I'm sure we will find out one day soon.
Shantavia is hanging out with her new beau, Bruce. They have been spending a lot more time together.
"So what are we doing tonight?" (Bruce)
"I already told you I can't hang out tonight. I have a big day tomorrow and when I leave here, I'm going to pick up Jada and I am going to bed early." (Shantavia)
"So you are saying you don't want to see me tonight?" (Bruce)
"You are impossible." (Shantavia)
"Come on Zahara. Come get in the water." (Nikaya)
Zahara doesn't budge. She is still not comfortable being in the water.
"How are you ladies, today?" (Max)
"Hey Max. We are fine. Shouldn't you be somewhere massaging somebody." (Racquel)
"I just finished my last appointment for the day." (Max)
"I wonder where Kim and Jasmine are?" (Carmen)
"Kim said she might not make it, but Jasmine should have been here by now." (Faith)
"Now where is your mother?" (Dominique)
"I don't know." (Kimaya)
"I know you don't, honey." (Dominique)
Naisha arrives moments later.
"Hi mom. I am so sorry about this morning." (Naisha)
" Where have you been and why didn't you call if you weren't going to come pick her up this morning. I had to cancel an appointment because of you." (Dominique)
"I'm sorry. Something came up and I just couldn't get out of it." (Naisha)
"Hello pumpkin. Did you have fun with Nana." (Naisha)
"Uh, huh. We had ice cream and went to the park." (Kimaya)
"Mom, why isn't she dressed? I'm meeting friends for dinner in a half and hour and I can't take her like this." (Naisha)
Dominique takes a deep breath.
"She's not dressed because you only brought one extra outfit and she's been here for two days. I just happened to have that robe and some shorts that you left at my house when you moved out." (Dominique)
"Hello Ms. Dominique. Hey Naisha." (Shantavia)
"Hello Shantavia. Nice to see you again." (Dominique)
"What's wrong with you?" (Shantavia)
"Well come meet Bruce. He's hanging out with me today." (Shantavia)
Zahara noticed the little doggie and went over to see it. She is scared of water, but will approach a dog any time of day. Of course, Nikaya quickly joined her.
"What's his name?" (Zahara)
"His name is Teddy." (Monica)
"Hello Teddy. You are so cute." (Zahara)
Meanwhile, Ian and Raven have arrived. They've been doing really well since the wedding.
"My, oh my! Who is that?" (Faith)
"Don't look. He might see you." (Faith)
"Bruce this is my best friend, Naisha and her daughter, Kimaya. Naisha this is Bruce." (Shantavia)
"Nice to finally meet you. I hope you are treating my girl right." (Naisha)
"As far as I know, there aren't any complaints." (Bruce)
Shantavia cringes a little bit. Sometimes Naisha can come on a little strong.
Ian and Raven found a couple of seats in the shade....away from the girls at the table.
"Are you comfortable?" (Ian)
"Yes, but I wish I had worn my bathing suit. That water looks really good." (Raven)
So everyone seems to be enjoying the outside. Some more than others.
Dominique wanted to show you her recent purchase from the Insomnia line. It's very tropical and very comfortable.
There is a good chance other residents will be enjoying the pool soon.
