What a beautiful day

I wish the subject "Life" wasn't in "Hobbies that I enjoy" that's just silly. It's just as silly as "Life" being in "Things I want to do with my life" Anyway....I decided to walk to the post office a few hours ago. I put Lucy's lead on and left her at a friends in the shade. She was happy. Off I went and I was there in no time and posted my articles. On the way home I realised how nice a day it was and how comfortable I was so I called out to my friend that i was going to keep walking. I kept going without stopping. The sun was shining...there were no clouds in the sky. It was hot but not too hot, humid without being too humid and there was a gentle breeze blowing every now and then keeping me cool and also keeping the pesky flies at bay (the flies have been a real nuisance lately). I was able to walk along at a good pace being comfy and not sweating profusely. As much as we need the rain today has been a really beautiful day. What sort of day sends you out to enjoy it with a healthy walk or other pastime?

My version of a perfect day is a rainy day where I can stay in and watch movies.But I do on occasion I do enjoy a sunny spring or fall day where it is not too hot or cold.In the spring , the trees are blooming and they are beautiful. And in the fall , the leaves on the trees turning colors is great to see. But this fall, because of the lack of rain, the leaves' colors are muted.

I live very near a Nature Center and walk there a lot. The beauty in the paths and the critters are so worth the walk there. I love walking in nature trails as opposed to the city streets though I do that as well. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I love days like you were describing to just go out and sit on my patio and read a book. I forgot to add on another one of your dicussions - glad you all are getting the rain you needed and some of your creeks are doing good!

That sounds lovely too. Yes, we're getting little bits of rain and things are bright green and clean looking. It's wonderful.

Oh, good for you to take that impulse walk. I love days like that. We have had some really beautiful weather here of late. I need to become independently wealthy, LOL, so that I can just enjoy them. I really enjoyed your first paragraph in this discussion, as well, and I got a good chuckle. I have this secret wish to take my hubby on a walking circuit of this town, from one park to another, with a snack or two in a backpack, so we can take our time and enjoy the lovely places in town. It is such a freedom to be able to walk, and take your time.

That sounds like a delightful idea. I hope your secret wish comes true.

I agree - I've always thought "Life" being categorised as a hobby was a bit bizarre. I walk all the time but my favourite weather for outdoors activities is when it's bright and sunny but not hot. Mind you, "hot" is not something that happens often here in Scotland so it's never really a problem lol! Spring is probably my favourite time of year for walking although Autumn can also produce some beautiful days here. I always say to people that the best time to visit Scotland is in the Autumn because of the colours.

It is a beautiful day, and too bad my boyfriend is not with me to enjoy it.

Mostly any day actually. I try to take a walk at least 4 times a week lately. It helps me with my health, weight, and smoking also. Plus my Buster loves the walks. I hate walking when it's really cold though and snowing. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I'm glad you had a beautiful day and enjoyed your walk. I ould only have a nice walk during early mornings or late afternoons because that is the only time hwhen the sun isn't so hot. But I usually like walking in the late afternoons because I am done with all my chores and I am more relaxed so I can just enjoy the walk. Take care and have a nice day. :)

Tickle, I was thinking the exact same thing about the interests this morning! I was adding some and I must have sat for like 10 mins trying to figure out what to put it under. I was debating, which one would make more sense? LOL Sounds like you are enjoying the day there. See its just past midnight here, midwest US, its going on 9 or 10am there? I hope you enjoy the rest of it. That kind of day would get me out and walking too. I dont live very far from my post either so Ill walk most times if its nice. Too cold now. For me, lol some might think its nice, its too cool. lol Bay Lay Gray xx

Sounds like a perfect day to me, Ms Tickle! I really couldn't ask for better conditions to enjoy a beautiful day than those. I like a little breeze in my perfect day, and it can't be TOO hot.

Yes it is a beautiful day, one that makes you feel grateful for being alive, I love these days to get ou in the garden to just sit there with my little cat and take it all in, I was sitting outside before and I can see my liitle tomatoes growing on my plants, this is only the second year I have grown anything like this, I think I like being a farmer (with my three plants) :)
