Nothing is better than outside

Saturday, May 04, 2013

I won't even question why, but we are in the high 70's this weekend, expected temp of 83 on Monday (hmmm, is that a virus I feel coming on? hate to spread that around the ol' office...). I LOVE heat and sun. I'm eating this week up, and it is so far delicious.

Yesterday was 16 miles to work, 16 miles home. Here is the only scenic bike route picture I took:

It is alongside a slough for the first 7 miles, on a trail along the backside of everything, with nothing to see but pretty and nothing to smell but fresh.

Here is the running trail by my house--I walked past it on the way to the gym this morning, and looking forward to running there tomorrow:

Again, nothing to see but pretty. Nothing to do but go to the end of the trail, de-stress, let all of life's worries drop away at the approximate rate of 11minutes/ mile.

Hope you enjoy your weekend! I'm done at the gym, ate my fabulous banana smoothie (with mint this's like summer, I tell you!) and I'm off to contemplate how it could possibly be that the sun makes everything feel *this* good.

    I was planning on a nice weekend, but it hasn't quite gotten up to 70 in my neck of the woods. And the wind doesn't want to stop blowing. But that's Spring for ya!

Have fun breathing in that fresh and soaking in that sunshine. Relish the moment!

    We could use some sunshine to melt the remaining snow.

    Great pictures. Winter seemed to last forever here, so the warmer temperatures seem especially sweet.

    Love your pictures and love being outside as well. We had a cold front to come through so our 70's and 80's turned to 30's and 40's..boohoo...but warming up again next week.
