The weather has been kind lately. Too kind, almost.
Where I live the weather can change quickly, from sunny and warm to cold and snowing overnight (as it did Sunday to Monday this week). The changing seasons and shifting temperatures remind us to take advantage of the good weather while it’s here: forcing us outdoors, inviting the neighbors over at the last minute, postponing dinner to get a family bike ride in. If you live in a climate that is regularly 70 degrees and sunny, taking advantage of a nice day to get outside and enjoy it may not be a priority. You get overly comfortable with the idea that tomorrow will be just as nice, every bit as enjoyable and inviting.
Never stop taking advantage of those perfect moments when the breeze is gently blowing, the sun slowly setting in the west. Those nights are the perfect excuse for an outdoor picnic, for standing around with friends and neighbors and talking. Your house doesn’t need to be clean, but you can still enjoy the weather and the company of the people you love.
