Crane My Neck to Look at Flowers
I love going on walks just to see all the flowers cropping up. I probably look like an idiot as I’m glancing back and forth at the daffodils and the pansies and… oh yuck! What is that disgusting smell coming from that tree? Oh, and there’s another daffodil. So beautiful!
Plant a garden
I only recently bought a house, and I discovered that I have free reign on what goes in the garden! I am currently the world’s worst gardener, BUT I did grow a watermelon…the size of a baseball. But hey! The rhubarb didn’t die…but it didn’t grow either. And are those the fifth batch of weeds I have to pull??
Laying in the Sun
After a long winter, I love being able to sit outside and enjoy the sunlight. Not only that, but my 2-year-old son is less cranky when he gets to spend time outside rather than being stuck inside as it snows. Ack! Bees! Okay, we only got stung once each. Time to put up the hornet killer tubes.
Being Able to Write Outside
Seven o’clock p.m. is my favorite time of the day. It’s when the kids finally go to bed, I have some peace and quiet, and I can go outside and write in the backyard with a glorious view of the mountains.
