Polar Bear Club and a New Pool

The Polar Bear Club AKA Polar Bear Plunge is (You know I hate Wikipedia but i can't help siting it)
A polar bear plunge is an event held during the winter where participants enter a body of water despite the low temperature. In the United States polar bear plunges are usually held to raise money for a charitable organization, while in Canada they are associated with New Year's Day.

I don't know who this girl is. I'm guessing this is what I would look like if I ever did it. My baby cuzzy does this every year. Do I think she is crazy for jumping into freezing cold water? UMMM 
YES. Thousands of people do it and I think they are all EQUALLY crazy! 

On New Years, I like to jump into this pool....




Nice warm, yet refreshing pool! 

SIDENOTE: These pictures have not been retouched. The only editing I did was adding our name! I know, I know you are sick of me saying it. This place is B-E-A-U-TIFUL! 

So this is the point in my blog that you are wondering where it's going?! (I'm right aren't' I?!) Well, I left the above pool in paradise and came home to....

A pool that looks like a polar bear took a plunge! The automatic cover has fallen in, the polar vortex was to much for it to handle. 

The fairly new pavers also took  a dip into the ice cold pool. 

In the words of The Dadster, "Well there isn't anything we can do about it til spring." He is 100% right. (Dadster you have that in writing) There isn't anything we can do...mostly because I'm just house sitting so I'm not actually part of the "we"....

What I can do is offer the rents suggestions of how they could/should rebuild their pool. Except for mama, I spend the most time there. To know me is to know, I always think I should have a opinion in what's going on!  

So I of course went to Pinterest to look for ideas who we can mend our frozen and miffed pool. 


My first thought went to a lazy river...a slide and bridge of sorts. 
Looks like fun, right? It seems like a good idea until you think of the work. It's just to much and the rents would have to add a pool house. They are trying to downsize. Just too much! 


I'm kinda wondering if I can talk mama into adding a "beach" to the pool. It would help keep us cool in the warm and humid Indiana July and August! 

After looking at all kinds of AH-MAZE-ING pools in all kinds of AH-MAZE-ING places. 


This in my favorite one....Home is where your pools is. I still kinda want the "beach" pool. The one with a swim up bar would be a really close second. This time I'm going to have to go with the Dadsters attitude. Even though its broke, we can fix it...(in the spring). 




This is for The Dadster!
