This quote from Stephanie Kaza rings so true to me. Last week I spent every possible moment outdoors. I looked forward to clearing more of the field and playing with my grand children there. I took walks and even ate my meals outdoors.
Unfortunately last week didn’t last. I woke to find snow on the ground and a high of only 36 degrees. This means I stayed indoors today. I finally broke down and heated water for a cup of hot tea (first electrical usage I’ve had in over 24 hours).
Indoors I find I only want to do so much. I hate cleaning and watching TV but love reading and creating something new. One of the reasons I love renting is that I am not allowed to change or remodel anything, I love to remodel and would spend my every minute stuck in doors changing my home.
Outdoors I will clean anything, gladly! I will just wander to whatever grabs my attention. This past week I’ve picked up trash, spent time by the lake, wandered through the fields nearby. I noticed the last of the daffodils for this year. I also quietly sat soaking up the suns rays and let my mind wander. I watched the birds and enjoyed their songs. I sat and felt the wind on my face. Basically, I took full advantage of my time outdoors, enjoying every nuance of my experiences.
What do you think? What activities do you enjoy when you are indoors? What do you like to do outside? How does the environment change you?
