Just being outside...

Anyone else enjoy it? Sometimes, or most of the time, I go outside with a list of things I want to get done. Then I might stop and look for bugs... or listen to the birds... or who knows what. But there's just too many times when I can just sit down in the midst of all that is nature and just soak it in. I just love it. So peaceful... So, away from everything. I love just sitting and listening... and observing... and just thinking.
I sometimes wish I had a laptop and a porch so I could sit outside and still be online :lol:

*raises hand* Me too, me too!! LOL I know how it is with the list of things to get done...sometimes I'm lucky to get half of it finished :oops: I usually just start dawdling and not even get anything done LOL. When I go to my Aunt's house I love to walk around her lake and forget about the cares of everyday life, or go sit on her gazebo (it's on an island in her lake). That is peaceful :)

That sounds peaceful.
My own yard is quiet to an extent. There's no immediate noise, but you can hear the highway loud enough and it's like 1/2 a mile away. I wish someone would plant trees or something along the highway to block some of the sound.

Just down the hill is a river... and I'll go explore down there and just take things in. So peaceful.
If I had the money I'd buy a few hundred acres in the middle of nowhere.

yeah, I can enjoy the wind when it's warm... Today, I wish I got outside. It was/is about 60 today and it was VERY windy this morning.
But I got busy working on some things for this site :roll:

Tomorrow or Saturday or Sunday I am going to take my oldest daughter to watch some eagles :D

You can bet I'll post about it if I get some good pictures.

We have bald eagles in this area every winter. They fly over my house sometimes but they're not easy to photograph as they're gliding by. But there's several places in the area where you can go to watch them.
Our home school group went to one such place today, but I missed it. I'm waiting to get a report from them how it was and then I'll be traveling to that spot myself. If things go as planned I should have some decent pictures. We'll see though.

If I don't get any great pictures, I'll still be able to just sit and enjoy the outdoors... and that's nice enough.
