It's a beautiful day here in Scotland and i am enjoying it with a little drink as i watch my wife cut the grass. I'll tell you, it looks a hard job in weather like this! On days like this i wonder what others countries do in this weather like this, countries that are more accustomed to good weather. I fancy taking some beers and going fishing for scampi. What do you do when the good weather kicks in? last year i went camping and made some great friends with the sheep, but you know what holiday romances are like, we never keep in touch, not so much as a bleat. Do you enjoy good weather a lot of the time or, like me, is a rarity that needs to be celebrated. I need to go now as the wife has run over her toe with the lawnmower and i need to get it patched up as the garden looks silly half done.

It's not summer yet, you loon - it's still spring! It was gorgeous down here on the south coast, too. And what did I do? Cleaned the kitchen, the bathroom, the loo, did the laundry... pfffft. I did manage to get about 10 minutes outside when I went shopping for croissants (and pains au chocolat, mmmmm) but that was about it.

Here in the Philippines, living in the city is always hot and humid weather. But I still enjoy summer here coz of always going the beach or filling up the swimming pool with water and having picnic in the backyard.

It's indeed summer here in our place, but this climate changed is giving us some trouble. It's too hot in the morning and suddenly rain pours at mid-noon.This happens every time but not everyday.I like it anyway,since it makes the weather a little bit colder at night. I just wonder till when this odd climate changed takes too long. I am afraid the weather will soon become too hot which makes my allergies worse. Enjoy summer then :P

I love Spring time..that is sun but not humid and beezy. I think summer gets too hot and humid for me and the winters here in CT are horrific.

Well, I live in Italy, even in my city (Genoa), as indeed everywhere, there is good and the bad weather. Of course, I live in the city, the neighborhood where I do not have a garden like yours, I would give me anything other than already a sense of relaxation and harmony. Now we are already entered in the spring, everything is more beautiful, the bad season is just a memory. The days are longer and then the good weather helps some people even in their mood. I like you prefer the beautiful season. Then when the summer comes, then I'll go to sea. Does not lacking that much time...yet.

Hi, temperature in India rising very fast day by day. yesterday maximum and minimum temp. of Mumbai recorded 39.5 and 19.0 degree celsius respectively. there was a pleasant weather 4 days back. the variation in the temperature in Mumbai from Friday night to Saturday morning was the highest at 23.8 degree celsius. now a day India's highest temperature is 41.2 which may go upto 47-49 in coming days. in some Northern parts of india like Manali and Shrinagar minimum temperature was 6 degree celsius. coming days would be burst for Mumbai residents.

I don't know what's a good weather mean? For people like you who really feel the heat of the sun, a sunny day would the best but for us who are always under the heat of the sun, it would be fine from 7 am to 10 but very dangerous afterwards and would be okay again at around 4pm. Its very strange though that we are experiencing rain on this month, it should be very hot in here. People especially kids are catching colds now. Other summer brought illness are now experienced by some children like chicken pox, measles, etc.

I love good weather! I love swimming a lot. I have a collection of swim wears as i don't like wearing the same thing over and over again whenever i go for a swim. I like going to a beautiful white sand beaches with amazing corals underneath. I like snorkeling a lot and getting sun burned (yeah i know, not a good thing). When i'm not out on an island hopping during this wonderful sunny hot weather, i'm out longboarding with my son. We play with other people who's as crazy with longboards like us.

I can't wait for the good weather to hit our country. The first thing I can think of is roller skates. It's been months since I last skated and would love to go skating sometime soon. The weather has been chilly and windy as of now andwas actually snowing a bit yesterday :/ I'm done with winter already and wish spring was here soon. Actually this is supposed to be spring here, starting march but i really don't kno whats on with the weather :/

Hi ajk The Good Weather I love it too. When I was healthy, and allowed to drive, all I could think of was take my day off and go on a long drive - and even did this many a times. I love driving bikes and ever since I had one, I always found some way to use it on such days. Earlier, it was my bicycle - and I would drive it in the rains or even the cloudy and little breezy day for miles. Today, I am not allowed to drive, good. I still enjoy my time by sitting out at the terrace or even taking a shower in the rain. nature always gives some good days to enjoy. However, this year, summers have set in quite early and the temperatures are already above 40 degs. C. That is a cause of worry and I think we are going to have some not so friendly rains this time. Maybe my Showering in the rain will have to be compromised

It's spring here in the USA, well in parts of it. I am in a part where it is spring, but the temperatures have gotten up to be able summer weather. I'm not complaining really as I rather like it. It's a wonderfully windy day today, and the sky is about bleak and dull. I do love summer weather as it is time for cool weather clothing and lots of fun in the sun. Our summers are milder then other States, and our winters are the same (being mild). This winters was quite quite mild and so I think we are looking at a harsh summer.

Oh I am so looking forward to the weather here this weekend. I usually like to hike and fish too. We didn't fish a lot last year but we did some hiking. I like laying out by the pool with a good book and a little dog around my neck...lol...especially when there is a soft breeze playing across us.

Ain't your wife supposed to have a drink while you cut the grass. It's starting to get really nice here in Las Vegas too and if I had a car I would be at the lake just swimming and having fun
