How much time did you spend outdoors yesterday?
Not nearly enough!
Yesterday being such a beautiful day, I should have spent as much time as possible outside, but I didn’t.
I let Evie out back when I got home instead of taking our walk. I know….I know. I did sit out back while she ran around, both of us enjoying the Spring weather. Then, all those things I didn’t do yesterday… I did about half.
Oddly enough, I love spending time outdoors, but I rarely do. I’m always inside writing or reading or any such thing. (Cleaning! Bleek!) The funny thing is, I could so all those things outside. Writing. Check. Reading. Check. Cleaning….. check! My lawn needs serious work and I have flowerbeds to prepare for spring. Plus a shed to clean out for a Big-Trash Pickup. Yadda….yadda… yadda…..
So why don’t I spend more time outside?
I am so set in my ways, that I don’t normally think about it. Or it’s rainy or cold or hot or any other excuse. Once I get outside and starting working or reading or any other task, I can’t believe I stayed inside so long.
I love working in my flower beds. Two years ago, giving up on the fight to re-grass my front yard, I turned half the yard into a bush/flower bed. The problem is I really need somebody to keep me focused. I’m working in this flower bed and suddenly think of something for another flower bed and off I go. Or I have a bunch of things to plant and I get overwhelmed and can’t decide where to plant them.
My main problem is that I should NEVER be allowed to go into Lowe’s or any garden center alone! I have warned many people, but no one listens so I can’t be held responsible for the carts full of plants with which I emerge.
But, seriously, I do love working in the yard and gardens. I love taking Evie for a walk. It is just a matter of making myself take the first step. After that, I’m good to go.
