Love it. I walk everyday. I love the summer

Every day is so committed. Great confidentrealm!

@DianeFitzRobin Yep I made the commitment. Even in the rain this morning. It makes me feel great!

@confidentrealm awwww, I can sense your enthusiasm-keep it going, an inspiration


I love the outdoors and nature and the change of seasons. I walk outside three miles a day at least five days a week winter and summer on a beautiful wooded trail, and look forward to it every morning. I also have a small flower garden and check it out first thing in the morning every day. Being out in nature is an important part of my life and a wonderful stress reliever.

you and confidentrealm are consistent walkers, ezwryder. I started a small flower garden but am not home enough to tend to it. Maybe I can plan/ budget to take next summer off to garden. To have your own wooded trail......


I like walking the dog, gardening, yard work, the occasional camping trip, paddling my canoe or just taking a nature walk.



Yes I love being outside but not when it’s hot and buggy. I’m spending a lot of time indoors lately. Florida.

oh well kltuckmn

When I live in Florida I had a dog I walked twice a day. That really got me in the walking mood although he was slow. Even in the summer, I still loved it. Just as hot and buggy in Houston but I don't let it bother me. All part of nature.


In the fall, when all the bugs have gone back to hell where they belong, and temps are no longer competing with my oven to see who can bake me the fastest- sure, I love being outside.

such a perfect time of year-I don't believe there's a hell, btw

@DianeFitzRobin it’s just a figure of speech, my friend. If there is a hell, I’d say that it would be WalMart on Black Friday

@DerekD I say Oh my God.....and at regular 12 step meetings I'll read verbatim but all my fellow members know I have a higher power, not a God.
We never used to have Black Friday in Canada but I've seen news reports on how crazy it gets-surely, hellish


Yes unless it’s too hot or cold, too dry or humid, raining or snowing, too windy or not enough wind, too many bugs....on second thought, no, I don’t like being outside

reads like you know yourself


I hate heat, so no, not right now.

Hermit Level 7 June 14, 2018

heat will not last forever, thank goodness

@DianeFitzRobin It lasts a while around here.

@Hermit ooooo, pace yourself-that's a challenging environment


I hate being indoors. I used to work in IT and hated being trapped inside. Now I'm a farmer and love every minute of being outside with my animals.

good career move Jon791


Any day spent outdoors in nature or natural surroundings is preferable to being stuck indoors or around's why I garden and why I hike and travel.

any day is a good day outdoors, I agree


succinct answer!


Of what?

Coldo Level 8 June 14, 2018

I love your wit.

of inside; cool Deb57 loves your wit^?

@DianeFitzRobin Inside of what?

@Coldo not outdoors?


Yes, and so does my dog. I also like being an outsider ?

Yes, I like being an outsider too. Ha!


I must have been a happy dog in a previous life, so yeah.....

Ahhh, happy dogs outside, nice image

0 you know something I don't?? ???

Jokes aside..I like indoors and outdoors...depends on etc

@Hitchens that's fair


As a rule, yes. I like to walk through my neighborhood on a regular basis and see what's happening, as long as it isn't raining or snowing too hard. Plus the cardio is good for me, right?

So good for us to be outside, yes


It's the best.... except it gets so hot here and the humidity is brutal. I can tough it out if I have a change of clothes ready.

MatRA Level 4 June 14, 2018

way to be prepared, I like that idea


I love being outdoors & being in nature.

so healthful


If it's comfortable weather, and biting insects are at a minimum, I quite enjoy the outdoors. I especially like the woods.

I miss the woods, trees here can be spindly-evergreens are plentiful thankfully


I prefer it.


I prefer it.

so many scents in the fresh breezes, so many interesting ecosystems


There are times I think of putting on my backpack and disappearing. Does that count?

most definitely counts-to hike cross country wilderness trails-what a feat that would be!


Yeah. Like a few of the others I’m also a pale mosquito magnet that spends most of my time indoors but I’m making it a point to carefully get a tan this summer, and the vitamin D feels fantastic. Mostly love being outside in the fall on a nice cool night, with a bonfire or in the dark star gazing.

cool nights by the bonfire and a musical instrument or two....


Yes. Unless there are mosquitoes. They consider me delicious.

Deb57 Level 8 June 13, 2018

there's this all natural bug spray I make from googling the recipe-they land on me but don't bite


I like the outside but it doesn't like me. I sunburn way too easily. ?

I hope one day parasols will be fashionable/available again

@DianeFitzRobin I have a couple. The problem I have with them is people don't look where they're going and they run into them. One was already damaged and I got yelled at for 'taking up so much space.' ?

@memorylikeasieve oh that's great you have parasols. To those people who complain, I'd ignore them. Or get sarcastic, "wow. just wow. you'd allow an umbrella, but not a parasol? same real estate bud."


I'm about to go camping for a week.....outside in the Forrest is my favorite place to be. I think there's something that the quiet of nature gives you that can't be attained in any other way.

pretty much your best source of natural silence
