As I sit inside my cool office, watching TV, having coffee and breakfast…I muse about the outdoor life in places where it is cooler. Like the beach…or the mountains.
My niece Amy and her family live in the mountains northeast of here, and when they get together, even in the summer, the outdoors are a big part of their lives. I want to hang out here (below).
The kids keep things interesting…Gavin and America are delighting in their worm exploration…
America is taking her cat for a stroll…love the house and trees in the background…
America’s craft adventures…
Another delightful adventure (for me) on a hot weekend…strawberry shortcake while reading inside a cool restaurant…
I haven’t gone out at all this week (unless you count the supermarket), but now I’m tempted to do so this weekend. I’m thinking that I would love a nice lunch, followed by a movie in a cool theater. The Hero, with Sam Elliott, Katherine Ross, and Laura Prepon, among others, was released this weekend.
It isn’t playing in my neighborhood theater…but I found it a few freeway exits away…which will work for me. I enjoy the idea of some old favorites (Sam and Katherine) with some new ones (Laura Prepon, OITNB).
So…that’s how my weekend is shaping up. I would love to be in the mountains, but I will adapt to my own surroundings for now.
What does your weekend hold for you?
