I took a break from my work and went out for a run this morning. The weather was warmer than usual, the birds were chirping happily, and it was starting to feel like spring. Rain was forecast for the afternoon, so getting out earlier in the day seemed like the thing to do.

Toward the end of the run, I got sprinkled on a little, the clouds were dark and heavy, and the wind was blowing my hair all around—but that was okay, it was good to get outdoors and be part of nature anyway!

  1. Makes me feel happy reading your quote and post . 🙂

  2. It is great you took the time to enjoy the weather and nature. At the beginning of this week we were in the 20s, today it reached 80. We need some rain as the weather people say we are already in drought conditions. I plan to pull the grass away from my daffodils that are coming up! Have a great weekend.

    • Yes, now it’s time for yard work again! I need to pull grass away from my daylilies — they’re not quite coming up yet, but I expect they will be soon.

  3. I love that quote! I, too, always feel better when I’ve been out for a scoot – even if it takes a few hours to thaw out… :/ 🙂

    So true. Love going outdoors.

  5. Yes indeed — thanks Indira!

  6. Nothing beats the outdoors! I learn that every time I take a brake from work and step out 🙂

  7. I am very happy for you. Sometimes it is needed to take a short break from our routine and spend some time in nature. We need to realx, enjoy and get refreshed.
