Work On It Wednesday - Get Outside!

For all of us in the north hemisphere, summer has official begun! As I'm sure you've noticed, I love summer. It is such a wonderful time of the year - great, fresh food, lots of activities, new flowers, etc. I don't really see any drawbacks to summer, aside from the fact that we don't have AC in our house, so we are sweltering away!

This week's Work On It Wednesday is a challenge to get outside! The weather is nice, and we all need a little fresh air and vitamin D! That being said, this post is going to be brief because I need to get to workin' on my yard.

Here are some fun things to do outside:

  • Gardening
  • Biking
  • Hiking
  • Roller blading
  • Camping
  • Going for a run or walk
  • Paintball
  • Whitewater Rafting
  • Play basketball
  • Picnic
  • Go to an amusement park or water park
  • Dirt-bike or 4 wheel
  • Movies under the star (for all my Springs readers, here is a list of movies under the stars)
  • Go to a game - minor league or major league baseball is in full swing right now!
  • Have a cookout (and share all your real food recipes!)
  • Rock Climbing
  • If you live near water, swimming, boating, skiing, and scuba diving are all great activities!
  • Fishing
  • National Parks - some a free on select weekends this summer, so make sure and check that out!

That's all I can think of now, but if you have any great ideas on ways to spend your summer (outside!) I would love to hear them! Especially here in Colorado, where the winters are so long and cold, the summer time is a great opportunity to really enjoy the landscape around you and take advantage of all that your town has to offer. So get outdoors!
