Sometimes I stress out trying to come up with an interesting blog relating to the time spent outdoors.

New resolution:  no more stressing out.  I don’t care if these posts get boring.  Time to maybe just get more simple sometimes and share without trying to come up with an interesting story. 

I don’t even have a single photo from today.  These all presented themselves yesterday at Catherine’s house and near Deb’s raspberry patch up in Herman.

Today’s time outdoors:

1)  Talking to my friend Melinda out in California on the phone, lounging on the deck.

2)  Picking lettuce in the garden.

3)  Talking and laughing with Barry on the deck before dinner.

4)  Eating dinner on the deck.  (My, the deck was popular today!)

5)  And who knows what else after this blog is written?

Let’s see:  weather.  Our temps have soared!  We’ve approached the upper 70’s, nudging 80.  It’ s SUMMER!!  Hurray!!  The berries are bursting forth everywhere; it’s a raspberry and thimbleberry heaven.  THIS is what we’ve dreamed about.  It’s here.  Heaven.  It doesn’t get any better than this.
