Actually I can but it has been awhile since I've been able to. Recently I am neglecting the indoors for the outdoors and at the end of the day I can't believe I spent the whole day doing yard work. The days have bee gorgeous and sunny and draw me to the outdoors as soon as I get out of bed. There is a ton of yard work to be done, garden beds that need sprucing up, cleaning and putting a new coat of paint on garden furniture and generally, getting my hands dirty. The downside is that I will be spending less time on my blogs and here on myLot but I will be here anyway just not as much. The great outdoors beckons and I am drawn to the clean fresh air, the smell of new growth, the feel of the earth between my fingers and toes. What more could a girl ask for.? How is the weather in your area. Do you spend a lot of time outdoors when the weather is nice?

Spring was late coming this year so happy to see it finally arrived so a lot of catching up to do.

Always nice when the weather is so nice you can get out and work in it, I loved going outside in Colorado but here in Texas, I can't handle it. It is already getting hot and the mugginess just turns me into a puddle. My body doesn't want to seem to regulate temperature wise here so its hard to go out in it.

We do have a few days like that in the summer but for the most part it is nice for working and lounging outside.

We are finally experiencing some terrific weather after many days of rain here in New Jersey. I also plan on being outside, mowing the lawn, cleaning up the yard and enjoying a little sun. I plan on sneaking in a little cookout on the grill during my downtime, lol.

Weather is really hot here. As in scorching heat when you get out. But it is fine. I am able to go out for a walk in the late afternoon. I wish I have the place as yours.

I live in an apartment but my wife has lots of pots with lovely flowers growing in them. Also some vegetables. The weather here is generally hot and humid, so outdoor activity can be a sweaty affair! siva

I understand that. It never gets that hot here except maybe for a week in the whole year so it is nice working outdoors. Nice that your wife can still grow vegetables and flowers.

I have heard about how hot Arizona is. it is the desert after all. I had a friend who would spend every winter in Arizona. to get away from the cold here.
